have to chime in:  some of my best work as a communist (little c) has been creating what someone dubbed "civic ritual performances" that bring representatives from different religions together to perform rituals that would be esoteric superstitions to non practitioners til experienced in observation of a social catharsis, atonement, celebration, commemoration etc.    Reading, chanting, singing short texts in languages of god by diff names doesn't bring full employment, but it does raise morale all round and reduce divide and conquer.   BTW. This is easier than building coalitions among political parties that have the word socialist, communist and or Marxist in their names
