Do Americans Understand What Socialism Is? -- Frank Salvato -- GOPUSA

Do Americans Understand What Socialism Is? -- Frank Salvato -- GOPUSA

In this article Frank Salvato tries, with the standard array of logical fallacies, to denegrate Barack Obama by associating him with socialism.  The Marx quote often bandied about by rightwing smear merchants is this one:

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs."

Fallacies of rightwing bloggers aside, what's of interest here for us Christians is this, from Paul as he describes the beginnings of the early church in Acts:

32All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had. 33With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all. 34There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need.

We Christians need to be honest about how we attempt to twist away from what is clearly stated in scripture.
