Marxist theology sounds like an oxymoron—I know. For now, I’m chewing on this thought, which I have adapted from Marx’s “Critique of the Hegelian Dialectic and Philosophy as a Whole,” found in the Economic and Philosophic Manuscripts of 1844:

The essence of religious estrangement is the fact that human beings as the human collectivity—as the whole of humanityobjectify themselves in distinction from and in opposition to the Sacred. This outdated estrangement is the thing to be superseded.
