Who is it you think I vilify?Yet you vilify atheist based on your own personal views and little of no experience? Go figure your hypocrisy
Raised Christian means nothing, many atheists were raised Christian but dropped their religion of Christianity for their religion of atheism.You can try but Stalin was raised christian, after he consolidated his power he set about rebuilding the christian church. Not really the actions of an atheist eyh?
Stalin destroyed nearly all Christians churches, probably what most atheists would do, given the power.
Of course he gave it up, most of those murdering psychopaths gave up a religion and became a humanist or some shit.As were Adam Lanza and James Holmes and the IRA and the KKK and the NTFL
I dont know about much about the other guy but it seems that he was raised christian and then gave it up
