When people think of communism they generally picture jack boots and concentration camps. Communism however, was about men who hate the living God and blame Him for suffering and evil (particularly their own). In this sense, it’s about God and His image-bearer haters setting themselves up as god-men in an attempt at re-engineering the souls of men, acting as the voice of thought and conscience and completely destroying everything about Christian-based and ordered society.
Toward the goal of re-engineered souls, Communists strove to re-engineer the two created sexes as well:
Soviet sexologists in the 1920s participated in the international movement for sexual reform a pamphlet titled ‘The Sexual Revolution in Russia’ stated: Soviet legislation bases itself on the following principle: it declares the absolute non-interference of the State and society into sexual matters as long as nobody is injured, and no ones interests are encroached upon. Concerning homosexuality, sodomy, and various other forms of sexual gratification, which are set down in European legislation as offenses against public morality-—Soviet legislation treats these the same as so-called natural intercourse. (Soviet Union in the 1920s: Scientific, not Utopian, www.workers.org)
In its earlier manifestation, the Soviet Union was a Sodom and Gomorrah. After Lenin’s death, Stalin seized control and abruptly recriminalized sodomy, gender-bending, etc. in an attempt at preventing the total implosion of society and economy.
In many ways, America is the ‘new’ Soviet Union.
