The word in English is about... That's another reason you need to go to some English classes. What is your native language?

Certainly not English.

Any possible way you could repost that in English? You need to understand the language before trying to read about history in it.

<quoted text>The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism,[10] in which social success largely required individuals to profess atheism, stay away from churches and even vandalize them; this attitude was especially militant during the middle Stalinist era from 1929-1939. The Russian Orthodox Church, which had 54,000 parishes before World War I, was reduced to 500 by 1940.

Several countries have done such, most of them Christian nations.

Sweden is a good example of a modern government with several atheists and non believers.

Go ahead and list their crimes against humanity.

Hang out with some Russians sometime and ask their opinion on Stalin and Lenin.
Lenin was actually an advocate for peace gaining power by propaganda fliers and rallies for the down trodden. Before the revolution there was no hope for anyone except the ultra wealthy. Lenin and Stalin arranged for every child to have a free education, free medical care, everyone had a job, there was no homeless people. For anything negative they did they also enriched the lives of hundreds of millions through the years.
Before the revolution sad to say few children even attended school and even fewer could read and write properly. Slavery was allowed under the label of life long servants.
Many died during the revolution because the wealthy paid the poor to fight for them or even sadder used the bible to push them into fighting with little to no weapons.
Interestingly enough guess what the big spark to the revolution was? The death of a peaceful protesting Priest and his church members by imperial forces.

Hanging about with Russians whose families were not shot by Stalin.
Quite a trick.

Jackass? Keep your family out of this.

In November 1917, within weeks of the revolution, the People's Commissariat for Enlightenment was established, which a month later created the All-Russian Union of Teachers-Internationalists for the purpose of removing religious instruction from school curricula. In order to intensify the anti-religious propaganda in the school system, the Chief Administration for Political Enlightenment (Glavpolitprosvet) was established in November 1920[70].[71]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USSR_Anti-Religi... (1917-1921)

The attack against the Church was brutal and opened as early as 1918 when forty-seven clergymen in the Yekaterinburg diocese were shot, axed to death, or drowned. As the Civil War raged, scores of Church leaders were murdered, and often in unspeakable ways. Some clergymen were frozen in ice water, others castrated. In some cases, the churchmen were placed into boiling water, burned, strangled, scalped, tied to paddle-wheels, or even crucified, with the naked corpses sometimes being strung up on trees as a gruesome message to other would-be religious leaders. According to Yakovlev, 3,000 priests were killed in 1918 alone, and a great many of these murders occurred with deliberate religious sacrilege. The murders were sometimes spontaneously conceived by local communists, but Lenin directly encouraged the bloodshed, on one occasion asking that a religious holiday celebration be suppressed by violence.

Are you suggesting Stalin himself shot people? You will need to show proof for that.

Several atheists? LOL. Obviously Sweden isn't stupid enough to promote atheism as government policy because history shows, time and again, doing so had disastrous results.

"While most literate individuals are aware of the atheism of mass murderers such as Josef Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Zedong, they are not aware of how many other atheist leaders have been responsible for mass murder. In one of the book's appendices, I provided a list of 49 other atheist leaders who had overseen the slaughter of at least 20,000 individuals; these 52 leaders represent the majority of atheists who have ever held supreme political power."

Atheism means not believing in god, that's it. Yes Sweden has many non believers in government and has for years. Can you show their crimes against humanity?

No atheists on here is pro totalitarian, we are all democratic so let's compare apples to apples with a democratic atheist county like Sweden.

Two little boys in first grade were chosen to be the leads in their
first school play. It was to be a Shakespearean play.
The first little boy was to say, "My fair maiden....I have come to
snatch a kiss and fill your soul with hope."
The second little boy was to reply by saying, "Hark!, a pistol shot."
Well, on opening night in the school auditorium, the two little boys were a bit nervous, knowing that all the seats were going to be filled with grown-ups. The teacher told them to take their places on the stage and to remember to speak very loud as soon as the curtain goes up. The curtain rose and looking out upon the audience the two boys were terrified. They stood there frozen. So the teacher whispered for them to begin.
The first boy yelled out these unforgettable words....."My fair
maiden....I have come to kiss your snatch! And fill your hole with soap."
The second boy screams out....."Hark! a shistol pot, a postle shiss, a pot of shit... I never wanted to be in this lousy play anyway.
The audience left howling.
Our audience often leaves me howling!
<LMAO>

love it!
