Well, I was wrong. I was gullied into believing that Mikhail Gorbachev had in fact returned to his Christian roots, but alas, it was simply a case wishful thinking and an over-enthusiastic journalist. Thus, I have changed the post.
"However, as someone who dabbled in Marxist philosophy and politics, I'm interested to know what lead Gorbachev away from the logical positivism of Marxism/Leninism and toward Christ."
I wrote this last Wednesday when I thought Gorby had reverted. He hasn't, but I still want to know what's keeping him an atheist.
