God as a “set of moral values”?

As we have been suspecting all along, the MP have reduced God to a “set of moral values and ideals”. Consequently they can now boldly claim that “the Soviet Union was based on a Christian moral paradigm”. No wonder the mission of the church had to be perverted to declare social causes as the primary objectives of Christianity … the result is whitewashing, re-branding and repackaging of a new “spiritualized” form of communism …

If the old communist goal was “to free man from capitalist exploitation”, now there is a new cause: “the liberation of man from under the rule of the satanic western societies”


Quote: “The communist authorities of the Soviet Union did not dare to “blow up the moral foundation of society,” which, in his words, generally remained Christian. “It saved us: our literature, visual arts were imbued with Christian ideas, and the moral of the people remained Christian””

Of course the communists did not ““blow up the moral foundation of society”, they came to give a new moral foundation to society …

After all, the tune between political and religious “high places” is identical … Mr Putin:

“I have always liked communist and socialist ideas. If we consider the Code of the Builder of Communism that was widely published in the Soviet Union, it strongly resembles the Bible. This is not a joke; it was actually an excerpt from the Bible. It spoke of good things: equality, fraternity, happiness. However, the practical implementation of these ideals in this country had little in common with what the utopian socialists Saint-Simon or Owen spoke about. This country had little resemblance to their Sun City.”
