There’s a very interesting discussion thread going on at the Essentials blog here. Take a look especially at comment #120. The Reader’s Digest version is that the priest in this parish disciplined members of his parish, following all the biblical and cannonical rules. The bishop didn’t like it, so he turfed the priest.

There’s also these:

This one actually appears to have been filmed in Red Square:

I was a teenager in the ’80s, in the era of the doomsday clock. If someone had told me that it would every be possible for a Finnish band to be playing with the Russian Red Army choir in Red Square….I’d’ve laughed.
