Fine article on the National Review on why the Pope may have kept the “Hammer and Sickle” crucifix he was given by the dictator of Bolivia the other day. Article link below.
So, what does socialism or communism teach? That men are basically “Good” and all they need is knowledge or resources (or both) in order to be equal. This is antithetical to the Bible’s teachings, and makes this pope, if he believes in socialism or communism – probably not a Bible believing Christian.
Tough stuff, eh?
