50 years ago: Soviet newspaper denounces the continuing survival of religion

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Psalms 14:1a (also Psalms 53:1a)

For those not old enough to remember the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Pravda (which still exists today) was the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. From the same section of The Edmonton Journal of January 14, 1967, that published the items in the post below (bold in original):

Pravda Urges More Atheism

MOSCOW (AP)--Pravda calls for an increased struggle against "religious survival" in this 50th year of Communist power.
50 years later, the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. is now 25 years in the past, while "religious survival" continues.
