You really need to read what Atheist post here, not to mention China, USSR and North Korea.
You do know that the USSR no longer exists, right? You do know that hey now have a law that gay people are to stay in the closet, right. North Korea? China? Their communism, and dictatorship are based on political ideology, not religion.

And for the record, there is no such thing as atheistic ideology, it simply does not exist. Atheists can be liberal, conservative, for or against abortion, etc. Atheism, again, is a simple non belief in a deity, nothing more.

Why do you theists have to try and make it so complicated. Oh ya, you guys try and equate atheism to religion, because you know how f'cked up your own religion is, so you are trying to create a level playing field. Sorry to burst your bubble, atheism is not a religion, nor has it ever been. Your religion and every other religion, is on a completely different level, and it's not good, friend.

Hold on here. Skeptic has declared Hitler as an Atheist. For the rest of this tread, unless atheist say otherwise. I will respect Skeptics word on this issue. You guys work this out. In other conversations I might choose to debate this issue, but here I give you. Hitler was an Atheist. Congratulations, I think it is the first time this has been accomplished in our blogs.
Creationists like Robert love to lie - that's what the mental illness of creationism does to people:

"My feelings as a Christian points me to my Lord and Savior as a fighter. It points me to the man who once in loneliness, surrounded by a few followers, recognized these Jews for what they were and summoned men to fight against them and who, God's truth! was greatest not as a sufferer but as a fighter. In boundless love as a Christian and as a man I read through the passage which tells us how the Lord at last rose in His might and seized the scourge to drive out of the Temple the brood of vipers and adders. How terrific was His fight for the world against the Jewish poison. To-day, after two thousand years, with deepest emotion I recognize more profoundly than ever before the fact that it was for this that He had to shed His blood upon the Cross. As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice... And if there is anything which could demonstrate that we are acting rightly it is the distress that daily grows. For as a Christian I have also a duty to my own people.

-Adolf Hitler, in a speech on 12 April 1922 (Norman H. Baynes, ed. The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, April 1922-August 1939, Vol. 1 of 2, pp. 19-20, Oxford University Press, 1942)

Hitler was catholic and don't let any creationist liar tell your otherwise

Since you spell your "x" with a "y", who cares?
