How have the right-wing/Conservatives/Republican/Tea Party claimed Jesus and Christianity as their own? He was a socialist!
It mystifies me how the capitalist loving right-wingers of the world somehow think that they're a reflection of Jesus and Christianity.

If you read the Bible, Jesus was clearly a socialist - it's self-evident in everything he does!

He turfed the money-lenders from the bank, he distributed and shared things for free, he healed people without asking for anything in return, he promoted acceptance of people of all races, colour and creed.

Jesus was the proto-socialist!

Does anyone think the right-wing nutters realise this are they all too thick?

yes you are right he was the firts socialist, he never own a house, he sleep at friends, he walked with his peers, he share with a multitude his bread and fish, he accept females in his group and treat them as equals, he never accepts any kind of payment, and he treat rich and poor as the same!

WWJD:


1) Be born in an emergency room (since there wouldn't be any room at the inn, this "socialist" country would make sure that he was born in a clean, safe environment.
2) Stay after school and study (remember Mary having to retrieve him from the Temple)
3) Close all the banks (Jesus v. the money changers)
4) Pay his taxes (rendering unto Caesar)

In fact, perhaps there should be bumper stickers with the following motto:

"Christ was a Commie!"
"People ask me to predict the future, when all I want to do is prevent it. Better yet, build it. Predicting the future is much too easy, anyway. You look at the people around you, the street you stand on, the visible air you breathe, and predict more of the same. To hell with more. I want better." ~ Ray Bradbury

And don't forget, he had issues with lawyers too. The only difference with Christ and socialists however is that Jesus (and God) were well beyond the crime/sin of greed which is what brings socialist (and capitalists for that matter) down to failure in the end!

Wow, the American education system really is struggling eh?

National Socialists were about as Socialist as the Tea Party. Like I said, just a name to hide behind.

Communism in its pure form can be Marxist Socialism, but not necessarily so, as there are different forms. Unfortunately there has never been a Communist government in world history, only those which call themselves Communist, but are not.

The biggest giveaway to spot a fake Communist or Socialist regime, such as the old Soviet Union or current China, is because they persecute people (everyone is equal in pure Communism) and have a ruling group class over the workers i.e. inequality.

Unfortunately, those brainwashed by education systems that are designed to breed capitalist consumers do not recognise this. Thank goodness for those teachers that actually teach you the truth, or the ability to look for it!

Socialsts look to the government to take care of them.

Jesus said to render to Caasar what is Ceasars ... and to God what is God's. Matt 22:21 & Mark 12:17 & Luke 20:25

Jesus taught that we should love others as we love ourselves. Matt 22:36-40. In other words Jesus taught that we should take care of our brothers and sisters... not point them to a government handout.

Bunkum and rot; I don't see an ounce of left-wing viewpoints in the US media. The Young Turks come close, but that's about it.

The problem is that in the US, the right-wing is so far right, that what you call 'left-wing' is still very much a centre-right message.. it's just that it's not quite so extreme.

Why do you think that Americans have been denied quality free universal healthcare that most other civilised countries have? Because the right-wing lobby doesn't want it because billionaire business owners will lose money.

Nooo.. Socialists look to see what they can do for each other.

This modern bastardisation of perception of socialism has been created by the capitalist education system.

Socialists work for each other and certainly do not wish to be slaves to a central system - that just capitalism with the incentivisation taken away - not socialism.

He didn't say "go rob the local merchants." He didn't say "go rob the locals." He never said, "look, you are entitled to everything in another man's house." "Thou shalt not covet thy neigbhor's goods." You think you can get yourself to heaven by being envious and lazy? Good luck.

I'll bet the Roman church was not started on social values. The right are church going, god fearing people. They see Christ as not human and human as full of sin. It is not so much Christ teachings but Church doctrine. And going against the church is going against God.

In socialism.....the government takes from the people and decides who gets what.

Jesus promoted charity from the individual you idiot. He knew not to trust the government to decide.

If you don't know the difference, you've been brainwashed. do you actually believe you can trust any man (democrat or republican) with other people's money?

Re: "...They were brutal dictators..." Your right Hieronymous! But I fear THAT point will be wasted on mindless, thoughtless emotionalism! Humans do not possess the capability or capacity for sustaining any government order that is based upon freedom and justice! Cool thing is Theocracy will soon be in place and Jesus WILL Rule with a rod of iron! All attempts at self serving self worship will be immediately and decisively put down! Peace, Glory and Justice WILL be the order of the day! Many of us will praise Him!

There are few US Liberals on glp...at least out of the closet. I come here for entertainment value, sociological experiments, critical thinking exercises and to remember and appreciate my childhood Jesus from the Bible.

"Christians" pontificate on the Beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount and WWJD only on Sunday. Rest of the week, it's Real Life. That used to describe the town drunks...sober and sorry only on Sunday.

Not one Bible Thumper weighed in on 3 or 4 pinned threads of gleefully depriving the "hefty folk" of basic food, or the other "let 'em eat cake" discussions. They don't "weigh in" on the folk Jesus literally saw as his people. Pages and pages and pages...we got ours...screw the rest. For shame.

My opinion, after living will all sorts of them in Red States and Blue States for decades, the harder they thump, the louder they wail, the more they long for destruction of "them", not "us", truly they would crucify Him as just a long-haired, socialist/communist hippie all over again, as did the pious religious dudes of 30 AD ... Saducees and Pharisees.

He was not King of the Jews then or the Lord of the Christians now, IMHO.

But they do go on and on and on for equally long pins about a little passage in Leviticus...the one about gays. The Law Jesus said He came to replace with Love.
