Freedom of Religion, Russian style

Alexander Nevsky Lavra
A Russian news item makes rounds on Internet: Russian organization which works with teenagers has ordered its employees, managers, psychologists, and lawyers, to attend a religious procession on September 12 in memory of Alexander Nevsky . They had to coerce at least five teenagers assigned to them to do the same.  Those who refused were threatened with losing their jobs.

This brings back memories.
