Communists and Marxist-types in general have this really strong â€œEither youâ€™re with us or against usâ€ vibe. If you donâ€™t see the worth of the Revolution, youâ€™re out. Damned. First against the wall. It gets worse, though. Thereâ€™s in-fighting. Terms like â€œBolshevikâ€ and â€œMenshevikâ€1 get chucked around like swear words, and to be honest, you get the real impression that â€” despite occasional cries for solidarity and unity â€” if thereâ€™s going to be a Revolution, itâ€™s only going to be us and not them.
Compare with your conservative Christians (like your ultra-conservative UCCF types, or your Metropolitan Tabernacle types): they donâ€™t just think that if youâ€™re not a Christian, youâ€™re damned forever. They think that if youâ€™re the wrong kind of Christian, youâ€™re damned forever. Catholics? Liberal Protestants? Orthodox? Not actually Christian, then â€” damned like the rest of the heathens.
Another nail hit squarely on the head.
