Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Good grief, now that you mention it...  Are you American?  I was pretty young during the first cold war, and a teenager when it ended.  But I remember a lot of talk about Georgia, and how they'd stubbornly held onto their Christian faith during the Soviet Union.  It was all icons and churches.  This must have been about the time they gained their freedom.  Religious freedom was not some secondary concern after elections and free enterprise, in our condemnation of the USSR.  It was front and center.  I actually vividly remember watching the tv in those days and learning about the deep Christain faith of the Georgian people. The US was very pro-Georgia even then.  They were a posterchild even then.
