Commentary: communism the ‘second oldest faith’

by Tom Licata

In his 1952 book “Witness,” former communist writer turned American patriot Whittaker Chambers writes:

[Communism] is, in fact, man’s second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: ‘Ye shall be as gods.’” Chambers called communism “the great alternative faith of mankind…the vision of Man without God.”

Hence in today’s world – this ‘progressive’ world – men can be women and women… men. And abortions – the taking of human life – can Constitutionally occur in the ninth month of pregnancy.

But Christianity and progressivism are incompatible, in fact, they are irreconcilable, as the first chapter of Genesis details:

“God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

How many progressives consider themselves subscribers of Christianity while simultaneously subscribers of gender ideology and abortion?

In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both…”

Karl Marx was enthralled with the writings of his contemporary, Ludwig Feuerbach, who wrote:

“The turning point in history will be the moment man becomes aware that the only God of man is man himself.”

When Marx was asked what his objective in life was, he said, “To dethrone God and destroy capitalism.”

Does all of this sound eerily familiar?

  1. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: “He taketh the wise in their own craftiness 1Corinthians 3:19 Communism is surely a godless alternate religion preaching left-handed political power to the proletariat masses. Reminds me of that scene from Monty Python’s Life of Brian, a comedic satire on Judeo-Christianity., where Brian (alternate Christ figure, portrayed by Graham Chapman) is confronted with a crowd of worshippers. “You are all individuals!” he tells them. The crowd replies in unison, “Yes, We are all individuals!” That’s communism. It’s too cool for God. Perfect for intellectual hipsters, like Bernie worshippers.

  2. While the woke movement stifles so much as a question. Free speech is, oviously, integral to individual freedom.
    However, we have a Bill of Rights. Imposing a dictate to obey a male patriarch and arbitrary sets of rules is not what is required in our democracy.
    The first 10 Amendments to our constitution limit government authority and secifically deny the right to theocratic governance.

  3. These woke lunatics don’t understand free speech. Free speech has limits. This constant fact-checking is violating the free speech rights of conservatives. Look what they did to Trump !

    • Keith – have you heard who owns the fact-checkers? The story behind Snopes should be a laugh. No doubt it’s “probably” a 3-letter agency tactic on Snopes, pharma owns / employees a few and so don’t many Corps. Doing business for the current (and fake) admin.

      Worth the watch!

    • Donald Trump is virtually psychopathic. That being said, the media concocted stories, quoted him way out of context. Likewise excoriated a number of Republican politicians. Check out: “Michael Tracey”. A reporter out of N.J.
      That being saidBuddism, Judaism, etc., are far older than both Christianity and Marxism.
