Russian Orthodox spokesman raps British government stand on wearing crucifix at work

Catholic World News - March 27, 2012

The chief public-policy spokesman for the Russian Orthodox Church has denounced the British government’s decision to defend employers who bar their workers from wearing crucifixes.

Metropolitan Hilarion, who heads the external-relations department for the Moscow Patriarchate, said that the British government was bowing to unhealthy influences that are “spreading fast in the public space” in that country. "Those Western liberals who are actually forcing totalitarian regime standards on free people are making a big mistake," he said.
