Time for a little Bible-thumping

In honor of Christmas, I’m going to do something truly radical and quote from the New Testament–that holiest of holy books for the ostensibly Christian capitalists who run our great nation:

“The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they had everything in common…. There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles, and they were distributed to each according to need” (Acts 4:32-35).
Now if all that sounds, oh, a tiny bit Marxist, it’s only because it is. Merry Christmas!

  1. Aloha,I’ve been slogging the blogging of these islands. Suffice to say, I’m happy to have stumbled upon yours.(through Ian Lind’s blogroll, for what it’s worth)Your email address was seemingly not available – hope the comment route is okay. Also hope it is okay to note my fledgling blog url: http://www.islandnotes.org (I certainly understand if you’d rather not post it, etc.) I do hope you get a chance to peruse it. I’m looking forward to reading more of your blog. Cheers, Darren
