Lithuanian archbishop compares European ban on crucifix display to Soviet policy
Catholic World News - June 25, 2010

Archbishop Sigitas Tamkevi?ius of Kaunas, the president of the Lithuanian bishops’ conference, draws a comparison between the European court’s decision against the crucifix and the attitudes of Soviet authorities who, on three different occasions, flattened the “Hill of Crosses” erected by the Lithuanian faithful as a testimony to their faith and their resistance against an unjust regime.
