Hugo Chavez thinks that Jesus Christ was a socialist. You know, he's not the first yahoo to propose such a thing, and he's just a crazy (well, maybe a little more so) as all the other ones. Praytell, if Our Lord were a socialist...if God decided that Socialism were the way to go...why on earth does the seventh commandment exist? If everything belongs to everyone, yours is mine is yours, doesn't that make stealing kind of pointless? If that were the case, genorosity and liberality would not be virtues any more than avarice and envy would be vices. If you want it, take it. Personal property? Who says? Truth be told, I think Senor Chavez forgot that depriving the working man of his just wages is a sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance. God does not take personal property lightly, not deny man's right to it. Ha! I'm fasting (kind of) for St. Patrick's eve. Come to think of it, I'm not sure what the point is, since someone decided we're not eating St. Patrick's Day dinner until Sunday. Hang Lent, we're Irish! We can celebrate St Patrick on his feast day! But I'm not in charge.
