Sometimes it makes you wonder that its just too stupid to be stupid.
Therefore it is possibly intentional.
I've wondered if the real reason that the church keeps pushing socialism its to purposefully make everyone poor so that when the whole world is destitute and miserable, they will seek refuge in the church.
So many in the church believe that modern wealth is the key reason for the loss of religion's influence among people.
There is a certain twisted logic in making everyone poor in order to "save their souls."
Socialism might seem to be the perfect tool to these types of religious to reduce humanity to the material condition of Medieval Europe where the church held ultimate power in society.
Perhaps. Or what about a God Who is touted as loving and merciful but doesn't show up for work? Two-thousand years and counting. Waiting for Godot. I hope I'm wrong....
