Your implication that Stalin caused the deaths of millions because he was an Atheist is based on utter ignorance.

His "purges" and his use of the Gulags were politically motivated. Those who he saw as a threat to his rule, or who he thought were obstructing the establishment of his "Communist State", were "purged" or sent to gulags. It had nothing to do with his (suppose-ed) Atheism.

Had he been a Catholic trying to impose Communist rule, he likely would have done the same thing.

By the way - estimates of those who died in Stalin's "purges" and Gulags are VASTLY less than your "50 million".
