Lenin thought that those who believed in God were worse than fools. "Every man who occupies himself with the construction of a god, or merely even agrees to it, prostitutes himself in the worst way," he wrote. "For he occupies himself not with activity, but with self-contemplation and self-reflection, and tries thereby to deify his most unclean, most stupid, and most servile features and pettiness." Consequently, anyone who believes in God is not simply in error; he is mentally deranged. This is why believers in the Soviet Union are frequently judged insane and committed to mental institutions.
