Putting Communism to the Sword
THE MILLENNIAL CATHOLIC:
In the upcoming month, I've decided to devote a good number of postings to exposing communism, socialism and democratic socialism, and I've decided this for a few reasons:
-Poll after poll show people in my age group and younger are more likely to have a positive view of socialism than any other.
-Many in my age group and younger have no idea what they're asking for when they're promoting socialism...or as one article puts it, Millennials are socialists until they get jobs.
-This is also personal for me because I do have a friend who is otherwise well-meaning, level-headed and likes his life...but for some reason he supports Bernie Sanders. So as much as I'd love to, I can't call all Sanders supporters stupid, but I can call them misguided.
-Many admitted socialists are actually trying to lecture people who have lived under communism/socialism about how great both systems are.
-Most of all, communism is the sworn enemy of the Catholic Church, and thus I am duty bound to fight communism wherever and whenever it rears its ugly head.
And since May is also the month dedicated to Mary and St Joseph the Worker, what better time of year to take down godless, atheist communism?
