Gorbachev: Christian or Atheist?

Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of the USSR, has always said that he is an atheist. Nevertheless, rumors persist that he really is a Christian. (Presumably, those spreading the rumors are the sort of Christian who mistakenly assume that anyone who is good must share their religious beliefs.)

This hit the news most recently in articles such as this (from a website that offers stories to "lift your spirit"...note that they make no claim to accuracy!) and this one (which seems to suggest that Putin and Medvedev are great guys because they believe in "Him" too).

On the other hand, Gorbachev continues to insist that he's an atheist. (See here and here.)
