Playing the Godwin card when the topic is really the meaning, ownership, and usage of the symbol "Socialist" (by, for example, the U.S.S.R) is really kinda l4m3.
Yet, strangely, in character.

Every week you give another example of where you ignore some of His' teachings in favor of others.

As someone who takes the Gospel more seriously than pretty much anything else, I have to ask for specifics on where you think I'm off course.

You are conveniently ignoring the fact that a political party - or a politician - can call itself whatever it wants.

Denying that the Nazis and Soviets claimed Socialism would be akin to rejecting Pres'ent Obama when he refers to "my Christian faith". I don't know precisely what he means by that formulation, to look at his record, but I have to own the fact that, by his words, at least his lips are "saved". I'm certainly lacking the divine database to evaluate the claim, and thus must take the Nazis, Soviets, and Obama at face value.

If Christ is the meaning of life then why do you cherry pick only some of his words and deeds when describing things you consider virtuous? Shouldn't you take him in his entirety?

What makes you think I don't?

While I will continue to point out that Marx's communist ideals have essentially never even come close to being realized for any population over a few hundred anywhere at any time, your continued insistence on confusing communism and socialism is quite simply silly.

Trumped by your desperate attempts to differentiate them by, like, an order of magnitude. National Socialist German Workers Party. Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Own it.

I understand that Socialism is your faith, and you don't feel personally bound by any of its sordid history.
It's the same with Christianity; I don't feel particularly bound by anything done by Rome, either.
And yet, people who haven't understood that the Christ is the meaning of life are going to blow all kinds of smoke.
The best we can do is patience, and attempt not to sound too peevish about it.
You're going to continue to vary Marx's theme of "the Kingdom of God, hold the God", and I'm going to mock your inevitable failure.
