The Cross and Sickle: Socialism & Christianity

The Cross and Sickle: Socialism & Christianity

My name’s Bill Mair and I’m going to tell you a true story about why all Christians should be socialists even if all socialists aren’t Christians. In 2016 I was standing for the Scottish Parliament for a socialist party. Here I am in Kirkcaldy High Street handing out leaflets and talking to people. One day a woman (not one in…
