On the occasion of debating LB 975 in the Nebraska State Legislature, I would like to briefly enlighten you about the history of atheist-style Communism in Eastern Europe between 1949 and 1989. My parents fled the Communist system that was established by force in a sham election a few years after World War II in Hungary. The Communist system had already ravaged the Soviet Union with a great famine in the Ukraine, claiming the lives of 5 million people. This was due to a failed five year plan where the Communists thought that they would be able to dictate to the laws of nature. This Communist system was established in a bloody revolution in 1917, by Lenin, a man who never worked in his life but expected masses of factory workers to work instead.
The Communist system is responsible for the deaths of over 100 million people in the time span of about a single century. That is about one third of the population of the United States. Many of the victims were Chinese under Mao Tse-Tung, where they are still finding graves and remains of people who were killed during the bloody era of Communism. Even today the population of North Korea is suffering under Kim Jong-un, where in some places the population of this country are forced to eat leaves. There are hardly any cars on the streets. If you look at North Korea on a night map you can see the boundary between it and South Korea since there are no lights in North Korea at night. They perform operations using infusion fluid in beer bottles in this country.
During Communism in Hungary people could easily be exported for speaking out against the Communist government. A group of 40 Reformed Christian pastors were whisked off to Siberia just because they wrote a letter to Joseph Stalin telling him to repent from his murders. Living conditions, of course in the Gulag Archipelago were downright unbearable. One out of only every three workers in Hungary was an administrator, the efficiency of the Communist system was simply that low. People lived like slaves in that system. They mass murdered hundreds of people at Kossuth Square on October 23, 1956. Many people were detained and executed after the Revolution sadly failed. This is what my own parents fled from. People were hanged up until 1985. The Communists tortured people like how they did in the Inquisition. They forced rods of glass up the penises of men and broke them. They also made people stand in rooms full of water and when they came out, they peeled their skins off like a glove. They also forced people to stand upright for days on end in a very tight small room with spikes on the wall and a light shining in their eyes so they couldn’t sleep.
Communism is responsible for the massive deterioration that happened in Eastern Europe for 40 years. In Romania for example they still were going around in horse driven carts in the middle of the 1990’s. 20 years ago half of all Hungarians didn’t even have a car, even today all over the country there are dilapidated, crumbling buildings that they weren’t able to renovate after 1990, the fall of Communism. My grandfather knew 12 Finno-Ugric languages, he was a professor of linguistics. He gave presentations in Ann Arbor during Communism. When he went back the Communist secret service harassed him so much it helped him towards an early death.
These are the sins of Communism which have not yet been resolved, not even today.
Atheists declare that simple molecules such as amino acids are forms of early life. Yet they fail to recognize that a fetus is a living human being with full rights and therefore deserves to be protected. Yet a Holocaust of 50 million innocent children, including many black babies has occurred ever since Roe vs Wade in 1973. This is more than 10 times the number of soldiers who died during America’s wars. This means that it is 10 times more dangerous to be in the womb than out on the battlefield.
I do hope you get the time to read the free book I sent you by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ. He suffered for 14 years in Communist prisons in Romania. Among other things they slit his throat, starved him, and almost killed him several times juts because he believed in Jesus Christ.
