    You left out RMS

      :-) took me a minute, and I’m a computer scientist, so I’ll add the spoiler: gnu’s Stallman. Great comment!

  2. Craig says:

    But why the H.? Seems gratuitous at least, or perhaps intentionally offensive.

  3. Dave says:

    Does voluntary vs involuntary fly right over your head? As a non-Christian, I nonetheless realize that Jesus never advocated forced sharing.

  4. pureprimitive says:

    Ya – I think it’s “Sharing is inevitable.”

  5. Maurog says:

    Neither did Marx, actually. Oh, those idealistic bearded hippies…

    This is why I love the religious cards; they’re funny by themselves, but I get a double serving of humor by reading the comments.

    this is exactly what i’ve been telling people for years and years now…. and they glare at me for telling me jesus was a communist… which I never even said because *communism* did not exist before marx & co. penned the term

      Just like ALS didn’t exist before Lou Gehrig, right?

    • drklassn says:

      Well, the early Church (see Acts) was definitely communist (i.e. holding all things in common and controlling the distribution centrally) but I think if you really read the red words, Jesus was above economic/political models. He merely told people to LOVE everyone and then follow up with actions that flow from that love.

      I would argue that if you really want to set up a government system, which we do need since there are over 6B of us, that was the most Christ-like, it would be socialist.

    @Spud: Isn’t the H for “Hallowed?” You know, “Our Father, who art in heaven, Hollowed be thy name.”

    Sounds like liberation theology: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberation_theology
    Pope Paul II “affirmed that the principle of private property “must lead to a more just and equitable distribution of goods…and, if the common good demands it, there is no need to hesitate at expropriation, itself, done in the right way”.

    People, please. This is simply about beard sharing, a common practice during the times of Jesus and it regained popularity with Karl Marx. What you do is grow a beard and share your hip new style with others. When one person has a cool beard, they must share it with others. Beard sharing is bound to take off again, with Santa coming and all.
