Chapter Summary

The Marxist atheists have developed a number of theories aimed at repudiating all religions. Those people, who want to develop an anti-religion movement by worshipping Marxist atheism and moving forward in unconditional agreement with one another, actually harbour a religious belief stronger than that of established religion. Humans have a mind, a body and a fixed lifespan. The Marxists of the Anti-religion Movement actually reveal a religious mindset in the psychology of their movement. The anti-religionists reveal the unreality of religion and clearly point out the necessity of social relations and historical transformations that systematize a new outlook on life and the world. In Russia, the headquarters of the Anti-religion Movement, the suppression of religion reached its zenith during the period of so-called 'wartime communism' when places of worship belonging to all religions were destroyed and their religious artefacts were defaced and broken.

Keywords: anti-religion movement; Marxist atheists; religious artefacts; religious belief; social relations; wartime communism
