Atrocities of Atheism:Episode IV -- A New 'Killing-Field'

Introduced in Atrocities of Atheism: Episode I -- The Atheist Menace, I set forth the facts on how Atheism is the bloodiest religion in the world in the 20th Century. I did not go into detail of exact examples. That is why I will show some practicle examples of the horrors of militant Atheist governments. In this "Episode" we will look at how Pol Pot's Atheist Khmer Rouge government in Cambodia slaughters wholesale believers of other religions. This was the bloodiest campaign against religion as a percentage of population ever... and it was committed by Atheist militants.

Pol Pot's Atheist Khmer Rouge Government Atrocities in Cambodia:

Khmer Rouge's under Pol Pot's reign began the Cambodian Atheist oppression. "[I]n Cambodia... 'as a percentage of a nation's total population, the worst genocide appears to be that in Cambodia, formerly Kampuchea. According to the Khmer Rouge foreign minister, more than one third of the eight million Khmer were killed between April 17, 1975 and January 1979. One third of the entire country was put to death under the rule of Pol Pot, the founder of the Communist Party of Kampuchea'". In Cambodia, Khmer Rouge (headed by Pol Pot) was an Atheist group that controlled the Government and performed acts of Genocide on it's non-Atheist population.

"Khmer Rouge immediately expelled the entire population of the capital city Phnom Pehn and began policies which resulted in the genocides of Cham Muslims"."[B]etween 400,000 and 500,000 Muslims perished during the Khmer Rouge period... In Oukoubah, Osman details 13 cases of torture, imprisonment and death".

"Cambodians perished under Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge regime. The victims included 10,000 of Cambodia's 12,000 Christians who died in Pol Pot's 'Killing Fields' in the late 1970s".

"The Buddhist clergy (sangha) was decimated, including monks and nuns. Fewer than 5,000 of Cambodia's 65,000 monks survived the1970s. Most endured hard labor, starvation or torture. An estimated 25,000 monks were executed".

Atheism isn't a religeon.

As to your statement "Atheism isn't a religeon"... That is not true to the United States Government. In fact it was ruled in Kaufman v. McCaughtry (2005) that "Atheism is, among other things, a school of thought that takes a position on religion, the existence and importance of a supreme being, and a code of ethics. As such, we are satisfied that it qualifies as Kaufman’s religion for purposes of the First Amendment". It also said that "Atheism is Kaufman’s religion, and the group that he wanted to start was religious in nature even though it expressly rejects a belief in a supreme being". In fact, the ruling went so far as to say that a previous ruling "went astray when it evaluated Kaufman’s claim on the assumption that he wanted to form a nonreligious group".

In fact this ruling was supported by previous rulings. For example the "Supreme Court has recognized atheism as equivalent to a “religion” for purposes of the First Amendment on numerous occasions, most recently in McCreary County, Ky. v. American Civil Liberties Union of Ky.". And Torcaso v. Watkins listed non-theistic philosophies as religions as well.

So, I stand by my original correct statement.
