Comment 11 by Lion IRC :

God has always offered hope to the oppressed.

The concept of god, has indeed offered hope, albeit a false one, to the oppressed and gullible.

God gives people freedom from slavery, a ghetto, a concentration camp, a den full of lions, a Roman coliseum, an ideology which seeks to impose itself by torture and brutality.

It does no such thing.

It merely subdues them.
