"If we are to resist the tyrannical expressions of religion, we have to stop believing that hostility to religion suffices to make us enlightened. Indeed uncompromising hostility to religion, however pleasurable, will only isolate intellectuals from the rest of society, especially in America. Further, we need to recognize how hostility to religion leaves intact much more serious threats to reason. Enlightenment, in the sense of a commitment to understand the world, turns out to promise us a very worldly kind of discomfort - the very opposite of the cosy theological musings of Dawkins and Harris." Dan Hind in The Threat to Reason
"As a non-believer, I want the atheist case to be made. I want religious belief to be scrutinised and challenged. I want Britain to be a genuinely secular nation, where religious belief is protected and defended as a private matter of conscience. But I feel prevented from doing so because atheism in public life has become so dominated by a particular breed that ends up dressing up bigotry as non-belief. It is a tragedy. And that is why it is so important that atheists distance themselves from those who undermine our position. Richard Dawkins can rant and rave about Muslims as much as he wants. But atheists: let's stop allowing him to do it in our name."

But hating money is still a sign of divided interests, still hating the one and loving the other.
So… there will be no blood for Capitalism, the fight does not exist for Christians; they are emancipated even from this! They are already socialists and where they go, goes socialism. Like Jesus said to the emancipated: Don’t look around to see and find the Kingdom of God, it is close to you, even in you.
For those who wish to see rioting revolutionaries as a means to the end of Capitalism, Christianity would be of little interest because even with regards to the fight against Capitalism, Christianity is totally subversive; there will be no blood! I mean the man died! He bled! It is done.
