Background

Religion is a natural force of conservatism, tradition, and the established power structures. For this reason, those who have wanted to change society have always come into conflict with the forces of religion. And this is certainly the case with the left: Marxists, Anarchists, Communists, and Socialists.

Leftist Movements and Atheism
Socialism

Early Socialists emerged at a time when Liberals, Communists, and Anarchists all began to posit a new way forward for humanity. And with a focus on mankind, many early Socialists adopted Atheism or, at least, something less conventional than the established religion.

Christian Anarchism

The Christian Anarchists (sometimes called "The Tolstoyan Movement") approached religion in a completely different way from others in the Left. Far from opposing religion, they embraced it whole-heartedly, although Tolstoy and his followers disbelieved in much of church dogma: the virgin birth, the immaculate conception, and the trinity were all absurd to the Christian Anarchists. They accepted the religion, but opposed the church hierarchy, as Tolstoy was excommunicated from the church during his life.

Ireland

Ireland has a unique, beautiful, and also tragic history within the history of Socialist movements. Like many other countries, while it was oppressed as a colonial possession, the workers' movements and the nationalists' movements intertwined and fought the same enemy, a foreign capitalist. But the alliance has always been tenuous.

Leftist Movements and Religion: Islam
Background

Today, the Socialist, ecological, feminist society of Revolutionary Rojava is the greatest example of the success of a bottom-up, libertarian-socialist society — and the great vast majority of its people are Muslims. All across the planet, just like Christians, Hindus, or any other religion, most Muslims are peaceful people who want to want to be good believers when at their temple, but also want to be good neighbors when in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, like all religions, this culture is dotted with humanitarian abuses, such as the severing of limbs of thieves under Sharia, the removing of sexual organs of girls at a young age to prevent adultery, and the low status of woman which often results in domestic abuse (though this latter issue is arguably on a nation-by-nation basis, with conservative governments being worse).

Islam and Indonesia

Islam in Indonesia is different from every other place in the world. The great majority of the Muslim population belong to the abangan following, treats most of the commandments of Islam (particularly the five-daily-prayers commandment) to be optional, and most of them essentially unnecessary. In contrast to the abangan are the santri, who dutifully listen for orders from Arab monarchies and caliphates, pray five times a day, and avow a hateful vengeance against the abangan. In Indonesian and Malaysian Communist Revolutions, the abangan were almost always entirely on the side of the Communists, with the santri always opposed. More human beings were executed by reactionary, anti-Communist forces in Indonesia (tens of millions) than in any other anti-Communist suppression in human history.

Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam

Malcolm X was a powerful, Marxist, muslim leader of resistance to the exploitation of those suffering racial injustice and those suffering economic injustice. The Nation of Islam, which he served until a bitter disagreement, has tried to hold onto his legacy, while he distanced himself from them. More recently, in 2020, the Nation of Islam has allied itself with the Church of Scientology. Further reading: The Malcolm X Archive.

Leftism and Religion on Social Issues: Education

Modern religion still exists because it can infect minds before they are well-developed, the way an adult wrestler can force a child into submission, or the way a college student can beat a kidnergartener at a spelling bee. The fight for a free education is the fight for freedom from religion.
Francisco Ferrer

Francisco Ferrer was an Anarchist educator in Spain who was executed by firing squad after a mock, show-trial. He was accused of organizing a rebellion against the government, during which hundreds of churches were burned. The actual cause of the rebellion was the church's undying support for the government's war in Morocco, with the initial fighting breaking out when drafted men were being loaded onto troop carriers.

Eastern Orthodox Church

The Eastern Orthodox Church has long been the greatest supporter of Tsarist Russia, one of the largest, slave-holding empires in all of human history. When it has been allowed to direct schools, these schools have simply become indoctrination centers, with more focus on directing the social and economic activity of their followers than on their religious activity. This religion only gets extra attention here because it is the predominant religion of Russia, which is a historic hub of Marxism.

American Secularism

If you can't totally and completely abolish all religion, then everyone should have the right to throw it at full speed out of their front door and into the street. Secularism is the separation of religion and law, although since religion exists largely to justify law, this obviously doesn't work out very neat and cleanly in practice.

Science

In the 19th century, scientists were just beginning to systemize their tools for discovering truth, and many of the scientists came into open conflict with the established religions. The conflict was not necessarily social or economic, but it was religious -- the quest for who can determine the truth and what we are expected to believe.
