You'll have to look outside the downtrodden countries for it, though xP

Also, there's a difference between a regime that forces atheism on all its citizens, like some communist states did, and a secular government which simply keeps religion out of politics.
State mandated atheism is equivalent to a theocracy. A secular government (which will usually consist of mostly atheists and moderate whatever-religionists) on the other hand is the only solution that's fair for all imo.

You might want to go through the some of the poorest neighborhoods in the USA and then check out their church attendance before you make blanket statements like that.

So, explain all of those Islamic theocracies and latter-day monarchies that instill a religious angle to their rule? Oh, right...I forgot! If they aren't "Christian", then they have to be atheistic! *head-desk*
aFundieMoron might want to look at the real world from time to time.

Obviously, Pakistan is an atheist nightmare.
1/20/2012 5:14:37 AM
I give you the Nordic countries.
Who just happen to be some of the most secular, free, and prosperous.

Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Indonesia are "Atheist Regimes" now?
1/20/2012 6:15:09 AM
Haiti, Somalia, Afghanistan, East Timor, Sierra Leone... nope, still nothing.
The only states with an officially atheistic ideology are China, Vietnam, North Korea, Laos and Cuba. Of those, Cuba invites the Pope every few years, North Korea has a disturbing personality cult, Vietnam and Laos do nothing to hinder or persecute monks or reduce superstition, and China is faring quite well.
1/20/2012 6:20:25 AM
Like Sweden, or Germany, or China.
1/20/2012 6:31:19 AM
I could do this all day.
1/20/2012 6:33:57 AM
Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Israel. Your move.
1/20/2012 6:46:34 AM
Show me a peaceful and tolerant country, and I'll show you a secular people.

Of course by "atheist" he means anyone who isn't one of the 30 members of his independent fundamentalist church ...

Iran. Downtrodden. Islamic theocracy.
1/20/2012 7:31:45 AM
Where ARE these atheist regimes? So thirsty for the bounty, the beneficence and wisdom of theocratic rule? So needful of the liberty and peace which can only come from the wonderful Abrahamic religions?
Why, everyone is happy and free in a theocracy!

Afghanistan. Somalia. Ethiopia.
Oops, they are all fundamentalist religious states...
1/20/2012 8:46:38 AM

Somalia for one, Zimbabawe for two, Saudia Arabia for three, Iran for four, Indonesia for five to name a few countries. What was that dumbass?

"Show me a downtrodden country, and I'll show you an atheist regime."
Oh, you right-wing twats really do walk straight into your own argumental Claymore mines, don't you...:

I really would like to hear you list the ways in which Sweden is downtrodden.
1/20/2012 8:57:10 AM
Show me material like this, and i will show you what an intellectually lazy person looks like.
1/20/2012 8:59:23 AM
Show me a theocracy and I'm show you a failed nation.
