Karl Marx once famously stated that "religion is the opiate of the masses." What Marx meant by that is that religion is a place that people flee in times of hardship instead of actually doing something about it.

Join us at Shorts Brewing tonight for an interesting conversation on whether faith inhibits or initiates positive societal change.
