No he wasn't, and the fact that CPUSA writes such absurd articles only proves how low have they fallen. What a shame.

He MIGHT NOT BE but bourgeois ideologues commit the same blasphemous conclusions that capitalism is God-ordained invoking the verses "poor and rich", "master and slave" and that Jesus Christ is a capitalist who claims (his) "my vineyards in Spain". Thou shalt not use my name in vain-God!!

In fairness they don't seem to be necessarily answering the question in the affirmative, just promoting some event.
Christian morality is anti-communinist to the core, blessed are the meek indeed. The problem with Christianity, as with all ressentiment based morality is that it claims the moral superiority of the poor and week in the place of actual superiority. To quote Monty Python's Life of Brian "What Jesus clearly fails to realise is that it's the meek who are the problem."
As for Liberation Theology, pure piffle. It substitutes working class organisation and self-liberation for the role of petty-saviours in the left-wing clergy and their lay apostles, translating Christianity's metaphysical reliance on the notion of salvation from en high into political form.
