The Our Father prayer is basically about socialism.

"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." That was literal. They thought God was coming to earth and it was going to be like heaven. Earth would be heaven.

"Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debt as we forgive the debts against us "

What more could a good socialist want but food and no debt.

I bet most people don't even realize the prayer's real meaning.
