Many folks believe that the bible supports socialism. Jimmy Carter is a good example. This is far from the truth in my opinion, but I want to explore this further with someone who disagrees with me. Look forward to the debate.

We are talking about the bible here. No where in the word of God does it tell us to steal off our neighbors to give to charity. Which is essentially what socialism is.Jesus did tell us to give to those in need. Then he said that he would prosper those who did so they would have even more to give.Mark 10th chapter.

Jimmy Carter is a fake. He even believes in abortion.That is why Jesus said, you shall know them by their fruits.He road to the white house on that pretty smile. Ronald Reagan came and wiped that smile off his face.

MaesterAemon, why do you suggest that I am using socialism as a "scare" word? I am merely defining political positions for what they truly are.

>>Mastery over production by the producers is the essence of socialism, those who work the mill should own it.

Yes you are correct about the essence of the socialism, however your believe that the workers should own the factory is a bad idea unless you are talking about owning company stock. I am happy to debate you on this topic if you would like.

Please stop using socialism as a scare word... Mastery over production by the producers is the essence of socialism, those who work the mill should own it.

Master, point received. Democrats, liberals, progressives or whatever name they change to are truly socialist. Jimmy carter may not have been the biggest socialist, but he is still a Christian socialist.
