Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't MARXists from China and the Soviet Union take opium, and, while the history of religions isn't a perfect one, and while many religious regimes like the Spanish Inquisition and the Terrorists were awful, how exactly were communist regimes any better? Did the collectivists policies of Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, and the Kim Family not cause mas starvations? Did these dictators not execute anyone and everyone they deemed to be a threat? And did these people not feel oppressed by said dictators and communists as much as many people may have felt oppressed under the church during medieval times? It's basically a case of Pick Your Poison, and you have one poison speaking out against another poison. I may be an agnostic, but I'd actually still choose religion over communism, because at least some good came out of religion to counterbalance the bad (Jesus, love for the earth, spirituality, the saints, the bodhisattvas, the spiritual masters, the shamans, etc.).
