    Karl Marx is say that religion's purpose is to create illusory fantasies for the poor. economic realities prevent them from finding true hapiness in this life, so religion tells them this is OK because they will find true hapiness in the next life. Although this is a critism of relion, Marx is not without sympthathy, people are in distress and religion provide solace, just as people who arephysically injured receive relief from opiate-base drug.

  5. Karl Marx states “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people.” As opium is drug which leaves the mind in a state of false images or false realities. So do some religions confuse those who partake in its doctrine. There are confused as to what is truth. Confusion is not of God for His house is a house of order. religion become opium to the people because they have different views of what they believe and know. He views religion as an illusion that provides reason and excuse to keep society functioning just as it is. Also, that it comforts people and tell them what they want to hear.
