Compelling story from Father Paul B. Bull of the Community of the Resurrection:

In Glasgow, a labour leader read out twelve propositions on property to a meeting of communists and extreme socialists. Each proposition was greeted with enthusiastic cheers by this revolutionary audience. The speaker then said: “These propositions are taken verbatim from the Archbishop’s Report on ‘Christianity and Industry,’ as the teaching of Jesus Christ. So don’t let us hear any more about Religion being an opium for the people.”

“The Kingdom of God and the Church To-day,” in The Return of Christendom, 229.
