Russian court bans Jehovah's Witnesses as extremist - Reuters

Russia's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that Jehovah's Witnesses were an "extremist" organization and must disband and hand over all property to the state, local media said.
Its Russian branch, based near St Petersburg, has said a ban would directly affect around 400 of its groups and have an impact on all of its 2,277 religious groups in Russia, where it says it has 175,000 followers.
A friend of mine was pretty happy about this news because she was born into a Jehovah's Witness family and left the cult.


ya jw can get pretty nuts. my town has alot of them.  they are always walking around handing out pamphlets.

alot of christians call other denominations cults lol my gf's parents call almost everything a cult,  while they themselves are pretty cultish lol
