Karl Marx on Christianity

"The social principles of Christianity preach cowardice, self -contempt, abasement, submissiveness and humbleness, in short all the qualities of the rabble, and the proletariat, which will not permit itself to be treated as rabble, needs its courage, its self-confidence, its pride and its sense of independence even more than its bread. The social principles of Christianity are sneaking and hypocritical, and the proletariat is revolutionary."

Karl Marx (Marx, The Communism of the Rheinische Beobachter, Marx, Engels Collected works).

Well I guess there should be no surprise why Christianity didn't do well in the ol USSR ah? Ah, but the world government were about to enter into looks more like Marx world view than the freedom many of us have enjoyed.
