Throughout this time of leftist violence, churches around the country have been vandalized and statues of Christ and the Virgin Mary desecrated. In several instances – a church in New Haven, Connecticut, and a resort in Montana among them – the culprits left graffiti supporting anarchy and the Marxist group Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter leader Sean King has tweeted, “I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.”

Of course, leftism has always stood in opposition to religion. Karl Marx believed that religion – by which he largely meant the Christian religion – was part of the false consciousness that kept people in ignorance of the true economic nature of their oppression. This is what he meant by calling religion, “The opiate of the masses.”
