I find it more than just a little ironic that communism goes hand in hand with racism, classism, elitism, and just about every other 'ism' there is, all things the left stands violently against. Yet it is the left who is embracing this same mentality...almost as if it was a religion.

Well, US politics plays the same game, church and state and that’s unacceptable

Well banks or bank like mechanisms were invented around the crusades, there can't be an economic philosophy without economy - and everything is getting more differentiated and complicated in time, if we totally ignore that you're right.
For less ignorant people it's like you're saying humans are microbes, but sure buddy, if you feel that way.

I am not tracking,
what does being a Trump fan and being and an atheist have to do as an exception to the reality of communism as a atheist theocracy'?

a reply to: 19Bones79




You said: "Communism is the religion of atheist."

You then backtracked into "Communism as an atheist theocracy."

Did you think I wouldn't notice?

You're being devious.

By any means necessary is right.

A theocracy combines church and state into a single entity, without a balance between the two.

Communism is an atheist religion, that when implemented as a state authority is an atheist theocracy.

Still doesn't explain what being a Trump fan and being an atheist have to do as an exception to the reality of communism as an atheist theocracy.

Church an State is very much parallel to that of Communism, only difference is that Communism, is atheist, while church an state religious.

Ancient Judaism was very much communist like, while Christainity an Buddhism leans towards renouncing wealth an such.

It means that if you believe that atheism is a religion you're basically saying being bald is a hair style.

Whoa now we ponder the deep questions!
It kind of depends right? If you shave to go bold it's a haircut, no?

By any means necessary is something all adherents of faith can relate to.


By only one means to faith.
So you speak of false religion not truth following of the Creator.

It depends. If you have hair and you decide to shave it off to be bald then technically it IS a "hair style". On the other hand, if you don't have hair to shave off then bald would just be considered a "style".

Also, I think some here are confusing an "agnostic" with an "atheist". And, let's not forget there are some other types as well, like "theist" and "deist".

An "atheist" believes that there is no God, higher power, or divine being, etc.

An "agnostic" neither believes nor disbelieves in God. They are essentially unsure and of the mind that man cannot know for certain of the existence of God.

A "Deist" believes God created the universe to begin with, but the laws of nature govern what happens after that.

A "Theist" believes that God created all living things, but does not believe in the Trinity nor the Devine Revelation.

As a Christian we have been frustrated by Religious fundamentalists that dismantle something that we believe is pure and simple like the gospel, they use poor context and extra biblical nonsense to fit their agenda to justify hate and anger to the secular world. They are trying to preserve a non biblical identity, idol so to speak that give them significants and security.

The woke is doing the same except they are dismantling science which in its true form is simple and pure. It reveals truths like the Bible, but they want to conform the science to justify their relativistic moral whims. They feel significant because who would question science right, like who would question the all mighty God. They feel secure because everything they surround themselves with is confirmation bias, like a holy huddle. The media gives them slogans and graphs and charts, all these objects of certainty that they cling to and champion, these call to actions become like idols: Vote, Mask up, Save the planet, for the greater good. It’s the good works model that the Catholic Church uses so well to keep their people blinded.

The emotional manipulation by the media and government is on par with what I went through for 12 years at private school.

It seems a “strong delusion”

Yeah, I won’t deny the similarities
Though to call it a religion with no spiritual side
It’s group think but not all group think is religion

Is masonism a religion?
Supporting a sport team

I can see the similarities, but a religion?
Just to long a bow

It’s interesting that many of the woke are rather outspoken against western religion.

That's because religion hates competition.
