美国人 Sergius Riis 将军曾是马克思的信徒。他哀于马克思之死，因而去了伦敦，拜访他所景仰的导师的故居。马克思的家人已搬走，他唯一能见到的人是马克思的前女佣 Helen Demuth。她说了一些有关马克思的惊人之语：
An American, Commander Sergius Riis, had been a disciple of Marx. Grieved by the news of his death, he went to London to visit the house in which the admired teacher had lived. The family had moved. The only one whom he could find to interview was Marx”s former housemaid Helen Demuth. She said these amazing words about him:
He was a God-fearing man. When very sick, he prayed alone in his room before a row of lighted candles, tying a sort of tape measure around his forehead.
这有点像正统犹太教徒在早晨祈祷时配带的护身符。但是，马克思早已受洗于基督教，他从未修习犹太教，而且后来还成了反对神的人。他写了多本反对宗 教信仰的书，还把他所有子女都培养成了无神论者。那么，这个被无知女佣看作祈祷的仪式，究竟是什么呢？犹太教徒祈祷时，虽然头带护符，但通常不会在面前放 一排蜡烛。这会不会是某种魔法仪式呢？
This suggests phylacteries, implements worn by Orthodox Jews during their morning prayers. But Marx had been baptized in the Christian religion, had never practiced Judaism, and later became a fighter against God. He wrote books against religion and brought up all his children as atheists. What was this ceremony which an ignorant maid considered an occasion of prayer? Jews, saying their prayers with phylacteries on their foreheads, don”t usually have a row of candles before them. Could this have been some kind of magic practice?
另一线索，则在马克思之子 Edgar 于 1854 年 3 月写给马克思的一封信中。此信开头就是惊人的一句 “我亲爱的魔鬼”。哪个孩子会这样称呼自己父亲的？不过，撒殚教徒正是这样称呼其所爱之人的。难道连他儿子也入教了？
Another possible hint is contained in a letter written to Marx by his son Edgar on March 31, 1854. It begins with the startling words, “My dear devil.” Who has ever known of a son addressing his father like this? But that is how a Satanist writes to his beloved one. Could the son have been initiated as well?
同样重要的线索是，马克思的妻子在1844 年 8 月写的一封信中，这样称呼马克思：
Equally significant, Marx”s wife addresses him as follows, in a letter of August 1844,
Your last pastoral letter, high priest and bishop of souls, has again given quiet rest and peace to your poor sheep.
Marx had expressed, in The Communist Manifesto, his desire to abolish all religion. Yet his wife refers to him as high priest and bishop. Of what religion?
Some biographers of Marx have undoubtedly had a suspicion about the connection between devil-worship and the subject of their book. But not having the necessary spiritual preparation, they could not understand the facts they had before their eyes. Still, their testimony is interesting.
马克思主义者 Franz Mehring 在《卡尔·马克思》一书中写道：
The Marxist Franz Mehring wrote in his book Karl Marx:
Although Karl Marx’s father died a few days after his son”s twentieth birthday, he seems to have observed with secret apprehension the demon is his favorite son….
Henry Marx did not think and could not have thought that the rich store of bourgeois culture which he handed on to his son Karl as a valuable heritage for life would oily help to deliver the demos he feared.
马克思在绝望中死去，就像所有撒殚教徒一样。1883 年 5 月 25 日，他写信给恩格斯道：“生命是多么无意义和空虚，但又多么令人向往啊！”
Marx died in despair, as all Satanists do. On May 25, 1883, he wrote to Engels, “How pointless and empty is life, but how desirable!”
There is a secret behind Marx which few Marxists know about. Lenin wrote, “After half a century, not one of the Marxists has comprehended Marx.”
