Primary source: Soviet anti-religious campaigns (1922)

The Soviet Union was the first state to have the goal of eliminating religion. As a result, the Communist regime confiscated church property, ridiculed religion, harassed believers, and taught atheism in the schools. However, most organized religions were never officially outlawed. The Soviet Union wanted the state to be the greatest moral authority in the people’s lives.
