You might very well be the blandest person alive. I guess that's some kind of accomplishment.

If Jesus were still around, even he would praise capitalism

I don't think you read that bible very well.

Catholics don't tend to, else they wouldn't be in an inherently hierarchical church.

I saw an image on here recently, it pictured Jesus speaking to the masses:

"I can't feed and help these people; that would destroy their incentive to better themselves".

That's capitalist Jesus for you.

I find it cringey that people feel the need to justify themselfs by saying what they think jesus would belive.

I find it cringey that people get their beliefs from a bunch of old books tbh. Like they can't form their own thoughts based on actual lived experiences.

I'd argue just as many people form incredibly vile opinions from lived experiences. I don't know what the fuck to do with people who are seething with hate, but getting off the internet and involved in some sort of charitable activity is probably a good start. Maybe MDMA would help too.

just beware though that people to the left are oftentimes also guilty of this. Preticualrly, those who follow straight up by the books Leninism forget a lot of what he wrote was not good, and selectively censor or forget this.
