[editor’s note – The Purging Lutheran in no way endorses any communist, socialist, national socialist, militaristic, monarchist, oligarchic, authoritarian or totalitarian styles of government. This is only written for entertainment value (if any).]

The other day Susan and I were driving the Tampa area and my brain was minding its own business when out of nowhere it was hit with the horrific realization that all those ‘positive’ and ‘inspiration’ quotes I see on The Facebook and the interwob are merely rehashes of Mao Tse-tung’s famous quote:

58A44668-FAF7-4D4B-A806-B3F757E334DB

Ye gads! It’s twue! The following are just a few of the billion (give or take)

Be positive!

or

Go get ‘em!

messages I found on gurgledotcom. Tell me these aren’t related one way or another to what a man who murdered 60,000,000+ humans once wrote.

Well, I hope you get the point, not that it really matters, I guess. If it makes you feel any better, here are two other quotes from Mao which proves he was insane:

“You can’t be a revolutionary if you don’t eat chilies.”

“It’s always darkest before it becomes totally black.“

 

Luke 10:30-35

30-32 Jesus answered by telling a story. “There was once a man traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho. On the way he was attacked by robbers. They took his clothes, beat him up, and went off leaving him half-dead. Luckily, a priest was on his way down the same road, but when he saw him he angled across to the other side. Then a Levite religious man showed up; he also avoided the injured man.

33-35 “A Samaritan traveling the road came on him. When he saw the man’s condition, his heart went out to him. He gave him first aid, disinfecting and bandaging his wounds. Then he lifted him onto his donkey, led him to an inn, and made him comfortable. In the morning he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take good care of him. If it costs any more, put it on my bill—I’ll pay you on my way back.’
