      all regimes had mistakes throughout history and among these , Communism was the least harmful one. What makes you think that Communism prevents people from gaining their prosperity on their own?

      Why don't you mention our struggles against fascism and the first privileges for laborers were provided by the Soviet Union?

  • Because Catholicism preaches against authoritarianism which is the foundation of communism. It's like saying I'm tall short. Only people with vague understanding of each don't laugh at your open ignorance to your own beliefs. It's like you've never read the Bible or the Communist Manifesto. In China they imprison people for religious beliefs because any of the Abrahamic faiths directly contradict both communism and authoritarianism.
