I am getting really tired of the rightwing fundies lying about how the Democratic Party and American liberalism have turned against Christians and other people of faith. Mike Whitney has more:
Marx was wrong. Religion isn’t the “opium of the masses”. Its effects are never that benign. No, religion is a shackle clasped to the mind of man, keeping him from utilizing the one thing that lifts him above the primordial swamp of fear and superstition; his inquiring mind.
Oh, wait -- wrong article.
UPDATE: Sloppy grammar fixed.
