Some 40 Soviet propaganda posters against Christianity will soon be displayed at Denver's Catholic cathedral as part of an exhibit dedicated to religious liberty.
"These posters remind us that societies can turn very deadly when you have a kind of radical secularism which manifests in an anti-Christian attitude … you see it in all its ugliness through the lens of these posters," Father Doug Grandon told CNA Oct. 17.
The posters displayed at the cathedral are part of the collection of Fr. Grandon, parochial vicar at St. Thomas More parish in Centennial, Colo.
The October 1917 revolution in Russia led to the atheistic, communist government of the Soviet Union which hoped to eradicate religion, and in particular the Catholic Church, from its empire.
