They are abosolute bollocks.
Facism can be any religion or moral dogma (Christians opposing Jews in Hitler's era, Jews opposing Palestinians in the current era) abusing any minority group to create a feeling of "togetherness".
Liberalism shouldn't give a rat's arse who likes which religion, as long as everyone can make money out of it.
The communists usually die trying to stand up for the persecuted groups. It was the union men and the commies who Hitler first sent off to the camps!
Communists generally don't believe in Gods and so education will not have a religious taint to it. HOWEVER... most communists I know would like EVERYONE to be taught about ALL religions AND atheism at school so the child can make his own mind up on the matter.
As for liberalism being the heir to communism...that is truly bizarre.
Any communist, worth half his wage, can explain that you can't have communism without first having a fully functional liberal/capitalist society (dialectic materialism). Communism is per definition a consequence of capitalism and not the cause!
Facism is in my view nothing more than a morally corrupt ideology based within a capitalist setting. The bosses keep earning more than the workers. The workers have no choice regarding what they wish their taxes and earnings to be spent on. BUT to create a feeling of belonging, they take a step away from the liberalistic approach (who cares what you are, as long as you make me money) to scape goating minority groups to whip up a frenzied hatred.
This could lead to questions about the policies persued in various countries which are "anti-commie" or "anti-terrorist" or "anti-muslim", but that's another debate for another day.
