Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I somehow have difficulty imagining that a poll on the attitude of Soviet citizens towards the Russian Orthodox Church or religion in general would have shown ANY positive attitudes in the 1930s.  Just having a pollster pose the question would have been an effective immediate substitute for a laxative for those with any sympathy for religion during those times.
