    This is SO TRUE. Many poor/uneducated people see religion as a bright beacon to their often infernal lives. Religion has been a "great friend" to the poor which is why religion is empowered by the poor/uneducated.

    This is so true. Notice the proliferation of churches in poorer neighborhoods. On almost every corner, there IS A CHURCH!

    You clearly missed the point of the question. Perhaps you should read, rather than assume.
