Putin, in a promo for a movie about the Orthodox Valaam Monastery aired on prime time Russia 1 TV:
"Communist ideology is very similar to Christianity: freedom, justice, brotherhood, equality. All those things are in the Bible..."
Anyone's who's familiar with Christ's teachings on class, and the inevitable overthrow of the bourgeoisie brought about by the internal contradictions inherent within the capitalist system, would have to agree.
Though it remains something of a mystery why, in every actually existing communist society, Christianity was brutally suppressed, and Christians were massacred alongside the millions of other unfortunates who refused to believe in the sacred texts of the Party.
