Your own copy and paste even states the churches were left open for service as they always had been.
In those days poor parents would send their kids away to the church to get an education which meant reading the bible and getting molested by the clergy. Lenin mandated all children receive a proper education in history, math, science and language.
That evil man! How dare he see to it for the first time children there regardless of income learn to read and get a proper education, becoming head and shoulders more knowledgable than children in many other countries?! How dare he!

There are Christians that don't believe in Jesus? Lmfao!!

Actually most non trinitarians will answer Yahweh, Jehovah, El or pick an OT version of the name.

As usual you are wrong.

Ask a Christian that believes in Jesus "which god?" & they'll answer "God".

Not to mention the Jospehus and Tacitus passage are outrageous Christian forgeries not appearing until centuries later.

Supposed Jesus witnesses
Josephus - Born 37 CE
Phlegon - Born about 80 CE
Tacitus - Born 56 CE
Pliny the Younger - Born 61 CE
Suetonious - Born about 69 CE
The Babylonian Talmud - 200CE
Lucian - Born 125 CE
Phlegon - 2nd century
How exactly are these guys witnesses to something that happened before they were even born?
Hearsay isn't admissible in court for a reason ;)
Tacitus was born in 56 CE, more than two decades after the alleged execution.
In fact, his writings about Jesus were done in 116 CE. This cannot be anything but 3rd hand (if not 4th or 5th) retelling, and the historical validity of the tale is therefore nil.
Since he was the first to write about it, where did he get the info? Surely not from earlier writings, right?
Those 'scholars' are therefore speaking through their hat.

How about instead of typing in militant atheism or state atheism you instead search history of the Soviet Union or Lenin or Stalin whatever and actually read about the subjects. Shut off the faux news and actually learn something. Maybe even ... Gasp!! Read what some actual Russian people have to say about the subjects, you know people who actually lived there? Crazy I know!

Aww the George Burns look alike and Daffy are unable to disprove me so instead they are going to bleat together. Angry bleating but the bleating of a broken loser.

Proof?

You make lots of absurd claims but you never can back them up.

I will not accept garbage from an Atheist web site that doesn’t have documented proof to their claims.

Even your hero Bart Erhman states the Josephus and Tacitus passages are forged.

Many Christian scholars pastors and priests say to avoid using Tacitus at all costs because he would never refer to jesus as Christ, and even educated believers admit the Jospehus line is forged but how much is it forged?
Links from several sources have been provided umpteenth times Daffy and you know it.
