  • The JWs should be locked up in a Russian jail and then deported to wherever they came from.
    that is very un-American.
    I dont agree w/ much the JWs say but I will always defend their right to say it. They can believe cows fly to the moon every Christmas eve and that is their problem. I can pray for them and that is what we need to do.. pray and argue... LOL

    They're native Russians. I can attest to this, that JWs tend to attract a lot of natives. I have some Latino Jehovah's Witnesses in my family.

  • Before the takeover by the Vatican II church, in the real Catholic countries, Catholicism was the legal constitutional state religion amd none others were permitted to proselytize in public or to have signs in their assembly places. That was religious freedom, tolerance for error, but it had its limits, and the limits are as I stated.

    Russia is not a Catholic country and really never has been. The Jehovas Witnesses are 1) a false religion, 2) they proselytize. If Russia wanted to ban all religions except the regional traditional religions of Russian Orthodox, Catholic, Mohamedans, I have no problem with it. I doubt that Russia is any different than France, where only at max 4% of the population go to mass. Russia is as "religious" as France. Pretty much zilch.
    If Russia bans the Jehovah's Witnesses tehy will also ban the Catholic Church, either in whole or in part. They did just that to the Eastern rite of the Catholic Church in the Ukraine right after World War II.

  • Sound legislation and quite human as long as no one is being executed.  JW are instructed not to debate facts a true cult.

    There's 4 Catholic dioceses in Russia, and one of them is almost half the country. Catholicism isn't exactly being practiced there.

    That would give the anti Catholic forces an excuse to ban the Catholic Church as well. They did it once before in the Ukraine.
