Overheard: Religion is a replacement for drugs.

The world as we know it is full of religion.

Do you agree with the journalist who lately said, "Many claim that Christ took them off drugs.  But haven't they just replaced one drug with another?  Isn't religion now their drug of choice?"

Karl Marx said: "Religion is the opiate of the masses."  Through the journalist quoted above, and through many others in the world right now, we are hearing this idea.  That religion is a drug, designed to keep the masses from rising up and taking hold of their own destiny.

Are the social idealists right?  

I'd like to hear your comments.

As a lead in to this conversation, I'll add this morsel of truth.  I believe there is great truth in what the godless are saying.  I'll add this.  I believe Jesus Christ is saying the same to us today.  What do you say?
