If these events are understood by these people with these good minds, why have they never bothered to explain it to the rest of the world?
Last time they talked to me, the origin of the universe still involved a high degree of mystery, and all the evolving relied on a simple mechanism whose innovative power is widely questioned, with little demonstrative evidence to the contrary, and that's after the still mysterious introduction of life, for which no person has a clue.

Newsflash Christine: Atheist leaders allow churches.
"Stalin officially adopted the Russian Communist Party’s stance on religion, claiming atheism and continuing the tradition of teaching atheism in schools and propagating the idea that religion was only damaging to a perfect communist society. Stalin even took it further than his predecessor, Lenin, and initiated a nationwide campaign to destroy churches and religious property and even persecute and kill church officials. It is said that under Stalin, the Russian Orthodox Church went from 50,000 to 500 open and operating churches"
-The Religion and Political Views of Joseph Stalin
That not news, that’s olds and complete wrong in that it deliberately focuses on one period, cherry picks and omits the final figures.

It omits the FACT that before Stalin died he was instrumental in restoring the priesthood and 25000 churches.

Honey, you said it, not me and it seems that you protest too much

Feel free continuing your god given mockery of disability. I would expect nothing more from you. Can I ask have you kicked any cripples yet today?

How about poking the blind guy in the eye

Or chatting about sex to the guy with ED then shouting fuckit?

Because after Hitler's invasion of Russia and Stalin's subsequent mental breakdown, he realized that common patriotism and religion had greater mobilising potential than Marxist-Leninism.

It wasn't because he was religious, it was because he wanted to win.

You're funny, Christine. None of the multiple sources proving Stalin's atheism is legitimate, huh?
You wan't Stalin to be a Christian, just like you want Hitler to be a Christian.
You're wishing don't make it so, Chicklett. Here's you another one to rile over:
"The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism, in which social success largely required individuals to profess atheism and stay away from houses of worship; this attitude was especially militant during the middle Stalinist era from 1929–1939."
Stalin took state atheism farther than Lenin. And Lenin took it a long damn way.
I don’t want any such thing, that’s juts what they were and it really does not matter that you deny it, facts speak for themselves

And you are mixing the state up with the man, such an easy mistake you make.

From the link YOU provided and YOU keep quoting:

"Stalin was raised devout in the Greek Orthodox Church. His parents hoped he would become a priest. He became a religion-suppressing atheist instead."

From your link (right at the top of the page, too):

Thanks for your unwitting help, ya dumb ass dyslexic.
One line – wow such good and ignorant christian cherry picking. No wonder you fail to understand the babble, you deliberately omit 95% of it

The piece mentions your selective babble

Stalin even took it further than his predecessor, Lenin, and initiated a nationwide campaign to destroy churches and religious property and even persecute and kill church officials. It is said that under Stalin, the Russian Orthodox Church went from 50,000 to 500 open and operating churches.

But unlike you it then goes on to say

But during World War II, Stalin eased up considerably on religion. He allowed for tens of thousands of Russian Orthodox churches to reopen, adopted an official policy of tolerance toward Muslims, and re-established the hierarchy of leadership in the Russian Orthodox Church.

Which you keep forgetting to mention for some reason, could it be because it refutes you previous statement?
