I wonder what Cap would say about this?
Someone should email Cap about it and see if he goes on a killing spree. I bet he would, totally.

Nah. Heck, if I were to assume ANYTHING about Jesus'' association with fisherman, I wouldn''t like peg him as a communist - possibly as somebody who HATES worms, but not a communist...

Well what about the rest of his followers, the tax collectors and prostitutes ??? Cause he hangs around with the less-desirables, hes a commie? What does that say about Drew? How about us?

This article is about Jesus, not me. I never hung out with tax collectors

He had 12 desciples, and none of them were gigolos. Peter was a tax collector. It was a varied bunch, and normal people followed him. "The sick need a doctor, not the healthy" drew :P

well jesus definitely wouldn''t have liked marxism, because marx wrote of jews and christianity as evils that needed to be purged, and jesus was a jew and... well y''know that whole *founding* christianity thing... but being a communist is a little different from being a marxist, and jesus and his followers definitely showed signs of non-marxist communism. like the common pooling of possessions under the direction of the apostles. and the admonitions to not just make the world better, but to in fact sacrifice your own life and livelihood to make the lives of the poor around you tolerable. i think the anabaptists have about the closest idea of christianity as it was then. a separate matter is whether jesus would think that worker productivity gains have negated the necessity to "do without" to better the world.
