Not even indirectly. What Stalin did had nothing to do with Capital.
Do you seriously want to repeat TBD's mistake? You know, the "Atheist Bible" allegedly preaching book burning, the destruction of churches etc:

It's always so damn embarrassing when people who never opened the book pretend to know what it's all about ...
"Stupidity renders itself invisible by assuming very large proportions. Completely unreasonable claims are irrefutable. Ni-en-leh pointed out that a philosopher might get into trouble by claiming that two times two makes five, but he does not risk much by claiming that two times two makes shoe polish." B. Brecht
"The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions." K. Marx
