„Atheism alone is the surest way to morality.“

—  Goparaju Ramachandra Rao Indian activist 1902 - 1975

The Need of Atheism
Контексте: Because morality is a social necessity, the moment faith in god is banished, man's gaze turns from god to man and he becomes socially conscious. Religious belief prevented the growth of a sense of realism. But atheism at once makes man realistic and alive to the needs of morality. Atheism alone is the surest way to morality. Those who oppose atheism in any form betray their vested interests in inequality of some kind of other.
