Comment: The atheistic state of the USSR

(See in situ)

was not known for wealth creation and happy people, just the opposite. The people used vodka instead of antidepressants

The Protestant areas of Europe were the wealthiest place in the world.

The rate of alcoholism in Christian North America was very small compared to the USSR.
