And if ever anything needed a little constructive criticism:

Correction: "Libertarian Defends Christianity Against Socialist Sycophants, Treads Dangerously Close to Anti-Semitism"

Since we all know the Sixth Commandment’s prohibition against killing is limited to just murder (Exodus 20:13)

Huh, it's not apparent that everyone knows that. Roll Eyes

It certainly didn't apply to all the people killed as the Israelites sacked city after city on their way to the Promised Land.

You may be right.  I'd like to see you elaborate on those points.

Imho it is socialism that is faith-based, where believers pray that politicians will turn water into wine, and multiply loaves and fishes.

The article is an attack on fake (heretical) Christians who (wrongly) try to justify statism and waring on the basis of Christianity. Genuine Christianity embraces the Rule of Law and rejects human authoritarianism; i.e., the basis of the welfare-warfare state.

Of course, on the other hand, I've noticed a truly appalling anti-Semitic trend amongst libertarian atheists that I think is reflected in the article. Saying bad things about the Chosen People and their holy writings is a thoughtcrime and we should all feel very bad it. After all, anti-Semitism is Nazism and Nazism is evil.

It doesn't apply to any government if that government is acting within the bounds of the law.

I ain't buyin' it.

I've heard people say that genuine communism has never been tried and would be a wonderful thing, and I ain't buyin' that, either.

I am an atheist, but a have to admit that the 10. commandment contains a good portion criticism against socialism:
"Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s."

Thou shalt not steal? Does that ring any bells for the socialist "Christians"?

Germany was a Christian country before it elected Hitler through a parliamentary process, and it is a Christian country now.  Yet, people have told me that the Nazis weren't Christians.

This country that is bombing and droning people throughout the Mid-East and Pakistan every day is Christian country, isn't it, not a Muslim, Buddhist, or Hindu country?

The Russian Orthodox homophobes and the big-spending, big-borrowing, Greek Orthodox aren't Rastafarians, are they? 

The No True Scotsman Fallacy comes to mind:
