Times, they are a changin'
Hi everyone, just thought I'd say hi and introduce myself.

I'm living in Moscow, Russia these days, which is an interesting experience. Certianly as I recalled, the Soviet era was officially athiest, however its remarkable how almost everyone here has already (sadly) become orthodox christian again.

Any other Russians (or at least people living here) on here?

Добро пожаоват! I think you're the only one here who's in Russia.

The Soviet era was officially atheist, but you can't force religion out of the people. Actually, I think it's very likely that discrimination and criminalization of religion only made the faith stronger in the long run (making religion a victim, etc.).

(Btw: A shitload of Russian bibles were smuggled to the SU through Finland. The older Christians of my town have great stories about their smuggling means and trips.)

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.
