Note that Diderot was quoting a famous communist who lived as a priest and published his screed posthumously, Jean Meslier.

Diderot was warning against the sentiment.

Interesting. Do you happen to know that old communist's name, so that I can use it in future? I can't find any hint of it on the web.
