RootBoy42: jfarkinB: nmemkha: Lets flip it around: name a significant communist movement that was ideologically theist.Liberation theology, perhaps? At least the right-wingers who feel threatened by it like to tag it as "communism".Christian communism is a form of religious communism based on Christianity. It is a theological and political theory based upon the view that the teachings of Jesus Christ compel Christians to support communism as the ideal social system. Although there is no universal agreement on the exact date when Christian communism was founded, many Christian communists assert that evidence from the Bible suggests that the first Christians, including the Apostles, established their own small communist society in the years following Jesus' death and resurrection. As such, many advocates of Christian communism argue that it was taught by Jesus and practiced by the Apostles themselves.Of course, you can say that that's not a truly Scottish "significant" movement.The idea that the early Church were proto-communists most likely comes from this passage in Acts 2, describing early Christians."44 And all who believed were together and had all things in common.45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts"And later in Acts 4:"34There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold35and laid it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need"
NateAsbestos: And I'll bite: please explain how atheism is a "key tenet of communism".
