    Did you not look at the links I provided? The war on religion was a constant state over there. The persecutions continued.


No, I didn't, because the three links take you to the same page, with basically nothing on it.

Yes, the persecutions continued, but after 1941 they were never absolute, all-out assaults as they were between 1917 - 1941.


    Quote:
    No you started this by saying religion is basically terrible.


I'm more than happy to say that, but in this case I really didn't. I just said that secular countries have better records on issues like morals, as I recall.

    And you are not quite right....Russia was very much a state imposed secular country. Look at the links....there were 4 time periods of serious assault...the link you provided was a grief interlude of far shorter duration.


Yes it was...BUT IN NAME ONLY.

What is it about this argument you're not understanding? I'll set it out AGAIN:

Despite the fact that Stalin (Or whoever - insert your favourite Communist leader) proclaimed that Russia was an atheist country, in reality it wasn't because the people never lost their religions and continued to practise them.
