Marxist view on religion
What is Marxs view?
Religion is a way to maintain class divison and powering the RC
The RC use as a tool for oppression
The WC use to cushion the effects of oppression
Religion as a ideology/Legimises the power of RC?
Marx sees religion as helping to reproduce, maintain and justify class inequalities
Acts as social control- Justifies inequalites by saying its 'Gods given' and peoples postion is inevitable
Religion misleads the poor believing their suffering will be favoured after life
Religion produces false class consciouness- WC accept their place
