Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I grew up in "compulsory atheism"

and it wasn't pretty. maybe opium is good for some people.

the official church is the other face of the same medal as communism was.

communism said there was no soul, religion said there was, but you didn't have the right to it until you surrendered independent, critical thinking and swallowed gallons of their flava koolaide.

the takeaway seems to be bad religion may be better than no religion.

or religion, with all its warts, carbuncles, nose hairs and funny smells is better than the total desoulment proposed by atheist governments.

no wonder we're so screwed up...
