John Lennon was, what you would call, a hippie. Not in offensive terms. I love him. But he believed in peace. This isn't only about religion. He says "imagine theres no religion, nothing to kill or die for". So what if we didnt have religion? Or possessions? World would be peaceful. Im an atheist but that doesnt mean im a scumbag who believes others shouldnt believe in god. I respect everyone and every religion. But that is not the kind of outlook John was shooting for.
