If you can’t beat them, join them! If you can’t stop drunken revellers living it up in nightclubs why not change the face of nightclubbing to be more ‘spiritual’?
An Orthodox Church in Russia is setting up “spiritual nightclubs”. Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin from the increasingly powerful church have said that youths will be able to "have the opportunity for serious dialogue, reading, unhurried conversation so they can have a cup of tea.""A nightclub does not have to be a place where debauchery, boozing and drug addiction reign," said Chaplin, who added that the Church-inspired clubs will stay open till 5 a.m. like most of Russia's drinking holes.
The Orthodox Church has become much more powerful since the collapse of the officially atheist Soviet Union in 1991.
