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



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


Then honestly you cant read...there are details of the multitudes of times they went for oppressions.


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

      No you started this by saying religion is basically terrible.



    Quote:
    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 were wrong...as those links show, and invalidated your link.

      Quote:
      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.



    Quote:
    Yes it was...BUT IN NAME ONLY.


Well you ignore the proof when shown or don't even look at it...little point in talking further.


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



    Quote:
    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.


This argument makes zero sense...because your examples of secular countries...are easily as religious if not more percentage wise.
