Russkoe Moloko

"The head of a large dairy company near Moscow has informed his 6000 workers that company policy will require all employees to closely follow the teachings and precepts of the Russian Orthodox Church," reports Thaddeus M. Baklinski — Russian Would Fire Abortion-Compliant Employees, Seeks 'Orthodox Transfiguration of Russia'. "The new rules require all Orthodox Christian employees who are civilly married or living together to be married in Russian Orthodox Church ceremonies by October 14, the feast of the Protection (Pokrov) of the Mother of God, or face the possibility of dismissal."

Nevertheless, the situation likewise has the appearance of rightly ordered subsidiarity.
