socialist bible verse: Ezekiel 18:16-17

He does not oppress anyone
or require a pledge for a loan.
He does not commit robbery
but gives his food to the hungry
and provides clothing for the naked.
He withholds his hand from sin
and takes no usury or excessive interest.
He keeps my laws and follows my decrees.
He will not die for his father’s sin; he will surely live.

—Ezekiel 18:16-17 (NIV)

Brother Will says: Ezekiel 18 explicitly states that children aren't responsible for their parents' sins. Here's line 20: "The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him."

But I'm focusing on 16 and 17, 'cause it's stressing that socialist kids aren't responsible for what their capitalist parents did.
