Christianity vs. Socialism
Liberal-progressives frequently assert that socialism is more in accord with original Christianity than Christianity itself.
Jay Richards, writing in the Washington Post, debunks that thesis.
Even before the 1917 Russian Revolution, leading universities in the United States had begun a transition from the Christian roots of our nation into atheistic, secular materialism in their teaching of the so-called social sciences.
Nominally-Christian theological seminaries were in the vanguard of the movement toward socialism.
