"Yuri, just like every Russian, was baptized," his friend said. "He just could not say that."

There's been a lot of that going around in certain parts of the world for some time.

Some of those places are even outside of the United States.

Gagarin died in March 1968 in an airplane crash during a routine test flight.

Yeah sure, that's the ticket.

Yuri Gagarin, the Soviet cosmonaut who was the first man in space, never made a comment that was attributed to him, mocking religious belief, according to an old friend.

Parse this sentence for a quick laugh.

The efforts of the Communists to suppress the truth of God merely proved the power of truth and of the human longing for oneness with God.

I remember the remark attributed to Gagarin about not seeing God in space. Someone on TV replied that if something went wrong with his space capsule, "then he'd see God, and real quick, too!"

This is what I love about the internet. For many years, I thought (wrongfully) that Gargarin made that terrible statement. That quote must have been started up by the Soviet propaganda machine and then carried forward (possibly unwittingly) by the western press.
