Forget reading Hichens, Mencken, Ingersol or Pain. Just go to V.F.  
Calverton, "Passing of the Gods" for an excellent Marxist analysis of religion  and 
its role, especially in Christianity from the first papacy to the French  
Revolution. It is a study of the social role of religion as reflection of the 
 interests of the ruling class and interplay of ideology with those 
interests  mediating the needs of the masse.Published around 1934. Anoather 
forgotten  classic.
