    Hussein Obama and Bill Clinton to you too. As for anyone else, here is my biography to debunk any trolls and their attempts to paint me as a communist:

    You're confused. We in the USSR had a New year tree. Not a Christmas tree

    What you're seeing is the result of the Cold War. Up until its collapse, the USSR was America's biggest geo-political foe. We had nuclear missiles point at one another. Americans distrusted Russians, and Russians distrusted Americans. Therefore, the USSR was often described in harsh and pejorative terms. Guess what? Atheism is also offensive. God is equivalent to a religious persons' core identity. For theists, God is inextricably connected to their morality, worldview, spirituality, community, patriotism, etc.

    So given that the Bolsheviks and the CPSU advocated for the separation of church and state, Americans labeled you all "godless commies" regardless if it was true or not.

    Ok, but do you have any doubt that the likes of Hillary Clinton, Bush and Obama all belong to the same club as communists of USSR? having lived under both systems, I have no doubt that both puppet circuses, like the demo republic rat circus in America was controlled by the same international bankers.

    Re: Which was more Christian nation - USA or USSR?

    How many people have lived in the former soviet union and are able to compare it to the US? The same goes for China and Syria. Only people who have lived there are knowledgeable about such things.

    In the former Soviet Union religion was hidden under a cloak of communism. All in all I think the US is the more Christian nation where it comes to having the greatest number of Christians living there but I do not know if that means that the country is living according to the teachings of Christ. I do know however that China, Syria and Russia also do not live up to the teachings of Christ either (from what I understand of Christs beliefs).
