: The association between God and capitalism, however, won't wash. It may have escaped your notice, but none of the major world rreligions was started in a capitalistic society, including your own Christianity. History is replete with religiously motivated communist or socialist societies. Massachusetts Puritans? The early Christians? The Sangha? Tanzania? Zambia? Nicaragua? U Nu? Gandhi? Not to mention the tradition of social justice and charity that is a basic part of Christianity, especially Catholicism. Remember, finally, what Graham Greene, seminal writer of teh Catholic LEft, had to say on this matter.
: "In Soviet Russia, they merely destroy the body of the [Catholic] Church. In America, they destroy its soul."
Could you provide further references from these sort of people NJ? I'd be very interested, have you realised that by tanks and repression Lenin and Co. couldnt abolish religious observance and rest on Sunday but by guile the capitalists achieved it without opposition? That's just one example.
