    to murder.  No, non-existent doctrine arguments please.

    Picture a bright blue ball just spinnin' spinnin' free. It's dizzy with possibility.

    •  This Lenin quote sounds a tad doctrinaire: (0+ / 0-)
      Religion is the opium of the people: this saying of Marx is the cornerstone of the entire ideology of Marxism about religion. All modern religions and churches, all and of every kind of religious organizations are always considered by Marxism as the organs of bourgeois reaction, used for the protection of the exploitation and the stupefaction of the working class.
      I presume you are not going to try to deny the efforts made to suppress religion in the Soviet Union and the Cultural Revolution.

      People can be fanatic about anything. The only group I know without a history of repression are the Unitarians.

      Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
