On a walk down this city's million-ruble mile, Nevsky Prospect, one cannot help but notice, just behind the Koff beer garden, a magnificent early 19th-Century Lutheran church with two bell towers and a cross that dates back to, oh, about June 29. From this church once emanated some of the world's most inspiring music, played on a famous organ that since has disappeared. The sound one hears now is of jackhammers. A look inside reveals an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is disturbed by the ordination in San Francisco last week of a lesbian couple and a gay man who will not vow celibacy. No institution should shrink from controversy and the church is no exception. Martin Luther's 95 Theses in 1517 marking the beginning of German Protestantism were greeted with neither mildness nor acceptance.
