    They fled violent religious persecution, but at the expense of being cut off from the sacraments for the rest of their lives. How sad.

    So this is a cool story because it involves Russians? Why am I suspecting that if an American were to advocate doing this, albeit in a better prepared manner, (as indeed some Americans have advocated and a few have attempted), he would be considered not “cool”, but a nut or dangerous “extremist”?
