Russia Have Just Officially Banned Jehovah's Witnesses From The Country

Submitted by: fancylad 4 months ago in News & Politics


It's official -- you can now be arrested for being a Jehovah's Witness in Russia. After decades of persecution, the Kremlin moved to get rid of all Jehovah's Witnesses for good. Earlier this year, Jehovah's Witnesses were labeled "extremists" and locked out of their offices.

And to think that last year, Russia welcomed their first Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Good barometer of our freedoms. Its common to complain about our system of governance (And I agree its not so great). But this is a perfect reminder of how far we have come. Let the annoying door to door religious salesmen come. 

And if this day comes for America, lets hope we stand against it...

toetagmodel2 Gerry's right.

The nation is no longer made up of people brave and free, but fearful and slaved.

monkwarrior Nope, Slave means exactly what its definitions state, and nothing close to what you are hinting at.

You just happen to be under the delusion that 'evil debt holders' are your masters.  That does not hold true to reality. 

Nice of you to confirm your delusions, though.

monkwarrior Ah, I get it, you're into the new 'liberal dictionary', where you can make a word mean anything you want it to.
Examples:
  • 'Woman' = Bruce Jenner
  • 'African American' = Rachel Dolezal 
  • 'Microagression' = Anything you don't like
  • 'Nazi' = Anyone you disagree with
  • 'Racist' = Anyone who's winning an argument
  • 'Bigot' = Anyone who's winning an argument
  • 'Homophobe' = Anyone who's winning an argument
  • 'Safe Space' = Anywhere people can’t disagree with me
  • 'Inclusive' = exclusion of white male heterosexuals
  • And now, of course 'slave of debt' = working for a living.

I'll add that one to the liberal code word translator.

monkwarrior a person entirely under the domination of some influence or person:

Well, maybe you're weak enough to be under the domination of your finances.  Not everyone is stupid enough to be.

Well, if by "extremist" they mean people with extreme beliefs.... yes. But I can't think of a less violent group than JWs.  Irritating YES but not violent.
