"Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich." Really? And did it have to include Karl Marx? A good video, but I'll take my Athiesm without the socialist overtones thank you.

It is so clear that the video has not focused on an ideology (even there is no such an intention except atheism). So you may be blind as a religious fundamentalist (as I aware of your other religious overtoned comments).

What is wrong with Karl Marx? Because he has a powerful argument against religions and corrupted society?

Also, your spelling is incorrect.

Ad hominem. And yes I misspelled atheist, but really, your grammar... Pot calling the kettle and such. And there is plenty wrong with Karl Marx. He attempted to misinterpret evolution as also being indicative of social evolution (a concept that is very controversial even today.) His works were crude and he advocated a statist solution that has (in ever instance were it has been attempted) led to despotic subjugation.

The response I just posted was a bit harsh and abrasive now that I think about it. I'd do much better to explain myself. I am someone who supports both secular morality and thought, while also believing in the value of free markets as the only means of defending personal freedom (because without property rights, other rights soon fall away as well.) So I am very perplexed and disturbed by what I see as a common linkage or association made between socialism and atheism. I desire to struggle against this pairing as it does the atheist cause no favors and in fact simply replaces the blind ignorance of militant religion with a secular ideology equivalent.
