The Soviet Union formed a Cult of Personality where figures like Stalin were essentially worshiped as heroes and idols. It's similar to what North Korea had with Kim Jung-il. It's essentially an atheistic religion, but a religion nonetheless.
the way the communist nations manipulate their people is very similar to how the church driven states manipulate theirs
..which puts me back to my original point, that it is not necessarily the religion itself that is bad.. it is the governments that use it as a power of authority
