    I'm willing to accept this argument but I want some clarification on what kind of socialist Jesus was. Was he an international lenninist socialist or was he an national socialist like Hitler or Musilini? Did he believe in absolute loyalty to the state and while God was a distant second? Did he believe that religion should be removed from society and everyone become athiest?

    Can I get some clarification on what kind of socialist was Jesus because some of the ones I have seen so far didn't seem like nice people and, to be frank, seemed very unchristian.

    The premise is a blasphemous joke in the poorest of taste, as Christ never promoted helping your neighbor and/or supporting charity by compulsion.

    He would have been just like every other socialist.

    Absolutely convinced that his way was the only way. That he was right and everyone else was wrong. that he had every right to tell others how to live.

    Isn't it interesting that socialism is so easily compared to religious thinking?

    I think he had the same political leanings as the Egyptian Sun God Ra. It is the same story after all.:eusa_shhh:

    interesting you should make that observation.

    perhaps some might say socialism the ultimate conclusion to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

    I know I would never take what another earned and give it to someone else.

    Isn't that one of the 10 commandments?

    My theory. God gave us 'free will'. That is not a socialist concept. Ergo, God is not a socialist.

    No, you're getting him confused with Obama. Jesus CAN walk on water.... it is Obama who THINKS he can.
