With the KGB Firmly Ensconced, Churches Once Again Blaze in Russia


The Associated Press reports that the Trinity Cathedral in St. Petersburg (pictured), built in 1835, with the second-largest wooden dome in Europe and where Dostoevsky was married, was destroyed by fire yesterday (click here for slidewhow). If that isn't a sign of the neo-Soviet apocalypse, we don't know what is. The churches have probably figured they might as well avoid the rush and start burning themselves down, denying the KGB the satisfaction just like Russians burned up Moscow to deny it to Napoleon. On the other hand, perhaps it was a practice run and stealthily accomplished . . .
