One of the long, sought after goals of Marxism is to break man of his belief in a higher power; to separate his soul from God if you will. This is admitted by Karl Marx in the Communist Manifesto, and later by Vladimir Lenin when he said that Catholicism was the greatest threat to world Communism. Communism depends on the idea that people will accept subservience to the state, and that government should be in control of all aspects of society.
When man places his faith in God this type of social control becomes impossible, because God is looked to for guidance, and it is understood that man exists for the purpose of serving God. Along with this comes the idea that man is born with inherent rights and responsibilities that are given to us by our creator, and that these rights are inalienable, meaning they cannot be taken by man. For these reasons, any man seeking to impose his will onto others must first separate them from their faith.
Throughout the past century, man has slowly been conditioned to believe in science as opposed to God, and religion itself has been slowly but surely removed from the public square.
