Machel on the Church
In these days following the sudden leath of president Samora Machel, when many church leaders are praising this atheist, it may be well to note some of his public speeches:
“Religion is a superstition which pretends that man is dependent on a super natural being who doesn’t exist... Religious superstition must be replaced by a scientific, materialist, that is, Marxist approach. The Church has always been on the side of the oppressors. . . It is a reactionary institution. . . Religion is something that divides people.” Le Mozambique, Dossier Pro Mundi Vita, Louvain January 1977, pg. 16-19.
