Socialism... Morphed from Radical Christianity...?

Samizdata's Andy Duncan has an essay on Socialism that ties the political to the religious. This is a separation of church and state that the left surely won't support.

Much of socialism draws its strength from Christianity. Indeed, you could argue that socialism is simply late radical Christianity by another name. Instead of worshipping God, its followers worship the State. Instead of donating a tithe of their income to the Church, they donate a tithe of their income to the Socialist Worker 'newspaper' collective. Instead of blindly following the teachings of Jesus, they blindly follow the teachings of Marx, another heretical Jew with a beard.

Something that I've pondered for a long time. Go read it.
