    The fact is in Ethiopia most of the athiest youth who were born during Meles Zenawi’s time had for all their lives been programmed to act violently towards Orthodox Christians by their surroundings environment , these athiest University students in Ethiopia were told Orthodox is the religion of the lazy who don’t work their fair share of work by claiming each day of the month is a holiday. These athiest youth don’t know any better but to be violent against “LAZY ORTHODOX” who were said to be to follow the religion only to get out of their work duties ( current locust infestation fighting duties) by claiming everyday of the month is a holiday, The.athiest youth were brain washed by the EPRDF five years growth and transformation plan cadres that spread gossip saying most Orthodox followers are not doing their fair share of work even with Meles Zenawi’s world class leadership , because the Orthodox followers tend to call days off saying it is a holiday everyday of the month just to get out of work or school duties , that brought the country to continue being the poorest in the world with such a low Human Developmental Index (HDI) rank.

    More than half of the country’s University students claim to be athiests according to the Universities record across the country.
