If it Ain't Communism, It Ain't Christian

I see these kinds of posts all over on social media.

As far as I know, Christianity is about personal salvation, not a protocol for governance. Maybe they're thinking of Islam. Whenever a conservative does do something in line with Christian values, the left screams about separation of church and state. The most futile thing a conservative Christian could do is spend anytime wondering what liberals will think of their actions.

In this example, the left is irate that Christians would dare stand against state-mandated charity. This makes sense if you're a liberal. The commandment "Thou Shalt Not Steal" does not apply here, because no one ever got wealthy except by oppressing someone else. Hard work and frugal habits are a myth. Because Jesus advocated a lifestyle of aiding the oppressed, any Christian must thereby support policies of wealth redistribution. According to liberals, you can't be both a conservative and Christian. But they would say something like that, wouldn't they.
