This is a contradiction. The government is god in Communism, therefore the people DO believe in a god. In the Soviet Union, pictures of Jesus were torn down and pictures of Stalin were put up in their places. It's simply trading one god for another.

I know that, and it's sad. It's typically what happens when one group of religious nuts (Communists) come to power and overthrow the other group of religious nuts (Czar).

Speaking of Communist China, it's funny how Christians like Tom DeLay try to claim to be a persecuted minority in the United States, when there actually ARE Christians being persecuted around the world in China, Afghanistan, etc.

Quite sad indeed.

Eugenics happens to be an evil interpretation of Darwinism.
I suppose this is fair to say, but racial superiority has been around since, well, the Stone Age.
