A communist can be religious. In fact, they usually are!
They believe that a society in which assets are state owned is practicle, and would actually work out and help the residents of a country.
Well, most of them believe that. Some believe that it's a way for them to gain power.
And really, that's all Communism is about. Power.
But communists will continue to go about trying to achieve something which would only be socially devistating. And they'll do whatever they can to try and achieve it, hurting anyone who comes in their way. See: End justifies the means

Communism only works for ants, bees and mole rats. Introduce any individuality into the economic system and it breaks down to form anarchy or totalitarianism. No communist system has ever worked in practice.

One who wants change at the expense of individual liberty.
Communist Dude: "Communism will help us all."
Other Dude: "Help us be poor, you mean."
A great idea... On paper. The communist party is the idea of everything being owned by the entire community and there being no social classes. However, this really doesn't work since no one has anything to work for, there isn't any type of entertainment medium because everyone has assigned jobs, and a feeling of hopelessness.
Most people associate the Communist party with Russia, but it was actually started by the Inca civilization.
Like democracy, socialism, marxism, and other forms of government, a form where the ruling class claims to give power to the majority (the people, working class, whatever), while instead, devoting it to themselves.
The concept of communism, just like the concept of democracy, would work fine if it was not corrupt, or if it did what it claimed is stood for.
China is a communist state.
A title used by members of the political party that is the furthest to the left. A communist believes that the means of production and the fruits of production should be owned and granted to the workers. (Ex. Factory workers producing snow-globes should jointly own the factory and receive all the profit from the snow-globes that are sold, then divided equitably among the workers). The philosophy of communism arose from a man named Karl Marx who lived in the monarchist Germany in the mid-1800s. Europe was home to many unfair societies at the time, where there were a few rich, (the bourgeoisie) and the rest of society were poor, abused, laborers. Karl Marx advocated destroying the rich aristocracy in favor a country filled with only laborers who governed themselves and everybody was equal, socially and financially.
