Atheism Albania - - - - 1988 Gall, Timothy L. (ed). Worldmark Encyclopedia of Culture & Daily Life: Vol. 4 - Europe. Cleveland, OH: Eastword Publications Development (1998), pg. 27. "By the 19th century, Islam became the predominant religion, claiming about 70% of the population while some 20% remained Orthodox and 10% Roman Catholic. These groupings remained stable until the Communist government outlawed religion in 1967, making Albania the world's only atheist state. Freedom of religion was restored only in 1989-90. However, the overwhelming majority of Albania's population was born under the Communist regime, which pursued an aggressively atheistic policy. "
Atheism Albania - 0.00% - - 1997 Wright, David K. Albania ( "Enchantment of the World Second Series "). New York: Children's Press (1997), pg. 102. "...because of the shared struggle for independence, the Albanian people have developed religious tolerance. You can admit to being anything but an atheist in today's Albania, says an expert on the country. People who claim to be atheists are thought to be Communists and therefore supporters of the disgraced Hoxha and Alia regimes. "
Bektashis Albania - - - - 1997 Wright, David K. Albania ( "Enchantment of the World Second Series "). New York: Children's Press (1997), pg. 99. "In Albania, many people follow a version of Islam not fully in keeping with the more strict methods of worship in the Middle East. Called Bektashism, this version of Islam was founded in Asia Minor in the 1200s and includes elements of ancient pagan religions and christianity. Many Bektashis drink alcohol... Calls to prayer are irregular or nonexistent, women do not wear veils... worshipers are baptized and practice regular confession, and God is seen as a part of nature rather than a supreme being with whom a believer is in contact. Turks tried to stamp out Bektashism in Albania and Communists tried to stamp out all forms of Islam in Albania. Both failed utterly. "
