Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 13. October 4, 1951
I give you four reasons why Communism and Anglicanism—or, if you prefer it, Christianity—are basically and inevitably incompatible. Christ promised He would be with mankind "all through the days that are coming, until the consummation of the world." Communism says He will be with us just as long as is necessary to keep the workers quiet. Christ promised no heaven on earth. Communism promises Valhalla for the dead and ambrosial pastures for the living. (Wot! No hell for the Hurleys?). Christianity is based on love; communism on hate. And Christianity states categorically, "I believe in God"; and just as categorically communism says "there is no God."
