Fidel Castro used to tell children to “close their eyes and ask God for candy”. The children were disappointed when they opened their eyes and saw that there was NO candy.
Then Fidel said to the children: “close your eyes and ask your leader President Castro for candy” and then he would give them candy and the children were happy when they opened their eyes.
This is how the Communists brainwashed children to worship the State rather than God. The Democrats boo’ed God during the convention…same thing.
