This has come up over and over, but then the leftist playbook is only about four pages, and those are all double-spaced. If you have to lobby for your B.S. for 150 years without pause, you end up being very repetitive. When your repetitions are all lies, you also end up looking both stupid and insane, which of course makes a good enough definition of socialism right there. This was my comment over there;
I never read the whole Bible, but I did see the movie. [back when I was a kid]
If Jesus ever lobbied the Roman government, calling for forced redistribution and centralized control, I haven’t heard of it. Let’s demand that the socialists point us to that passage in the Bible. He didn’t lobby the government employees to form public employees’ unions who would then take to the streets, calling for revolution if they didn’t get their way, did he? Let’s see THAT part in the Bible. (if Jesus did that, he must have been a dumb jerk anyway, and I wouldn’t listen to him)
If we were put here with free will, then forcing “charity” takes away that free will along with the distinction between those who give willingly and those who “give” only under threats from the government.
The socialists know all this of course, so let’s not make the mistake of taking their gibberish seriously– they’re just making up lies to sow doubt among the less attentive of Christians. The only time we should ever take socialists at their word is when they’re making their threats. They have a long history of carrying out the most outrageous of threats. In that case we must be very serious in our resolve to defeat them. Otherwise, socialism is nothing but a sick joke.
When Jesus shows up in person, dressed in a black ninja outfit with his own team of storm troopers to take my property, I’ll believe he was a socialist. Until then; Girls, you be trippin’. I’ll go with Douglas Adams’ definition of Jesus; “A man who got nailed to a tree for suggesting we be nice to people.” I suppose today he’d be labeled a “terrorist” and the Brits would shut down his Twitter and FaceBook accounts.
