For the upteenth time, I am not a godless communist. I am a godless capitalist. When are theists going to let this red herring go? You seem to be desperately trying to draw a parallel where none exists so you can find us morally guilty by association. Those atrocities where committed in the name of communism, not atheism. Communists only adopt atheism as a matter of convenience as they don't want any other sources of moral authority (like an organized church) around which might pose a threat to their power.
Communism doesn't logically follow from atheism anyway. The only political system that does would be libertarianism.
