Christianity and Communism

The socialists in America have been beating their anti-Christian drum making a lot of noise over recent years. Americans have had a choice of religions including atheism since our country’s founding — via the 1st amendment. So why all of the anti-religious flurry today? Because today’s code-word for communism is socialism, and that means no freedom of religion.
Religion is typically not allowed in a communist state. Removal of religion is just another step toward the totalitarian rule of the socialists over you and I — the end of America as we know it. Sounds extreme? Well, ask the Chinese what they think.
For decades China has been imprisoning Falun Gong religious members in ‘re-education camps’. As hard as it is to believe, they actually use these prisoners for body part replacements. (Anyone can get a kidney replacement in two weeks if you have the money.) Also, in recent years they started arresting Muslim Chinese (Uyghurs). Now, in an effort to not be discriminatory, they want all Christians incarcerated.
What is the threat that motivates such hateful behavior in the communist party? Fear. In a communist (totalitarian) system, there can be no religion. To allow religion is to allow independent thought. To have independent thought is to allow freedom. And freedom brings on revolution against the ruling class — the communist party members – aka, the elite.
Enter the subject of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a coastal city on the south China sea coast. They are one of the more successful cities in China and enjoy some freedom that other Chinese don’t. Their concern currently is the communist party’s attempt to get extradition authority for ‘criminals’. In the party’s parlance, that means religious people, any religious people. This is why the Hong Kong people are rioting.
Hong Kong’s extradition bill crisis began in February 2019 with the government’s proposal of the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019. The proposed law would allow the transfer of fugitives to jurisdictions with which Hong Kong lacks an extradition deal, including mainland China, Taiwan and Macau. Opponents of the bill expressed concerns about the possibility of politically motivated persecution and unfair trials on the mainland. Millions of people have taken to the streets to protest against the bill, which was suspended by Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor on June 15, 2019.
So who cares what’s going on it China? You should! The above situation is exactly where the socialists are wanting to take us right here in America. Sounds extreme? Consider this: almost 50% of millennials in America are in favor of socialism over capitalism; over 100 self-avowed socialists hold seats in the House of Representatives; the Left (socialists) are trying to get one of their socialists in the Whitehouse as president. If they manage to accomplish that task along with congress, we here in America will be in deep do-do.
If you’re wondering what you can do to make a difference, consider two actions you can take: 1) Vote: vote intelligently — learn what’s really going on, not what some propagandist tells you on CNN; 2) Educate: try to educate those with whom you associate — e.g., family, co-workers, associates.
We are on schedule with a slight disruption (Trump) for the destruction of this country and have been for 100 years, right here in America. If you won’t take action, who do you expect to? Socialists in your ‘representative’ House?
