MOSCOW (AP) — Russia's Supreme Court has banned the Jehovah's Witnesses from operating in the country, accepting a request from the justice ministry that the religious organization be considered an extremist group.

The court ordered the closure of the group's Russia headquarters and its 395 local chapters, as well as the seizure of its property.

The Interfax news agency on Thursday quoted Justice Ministry attorney Svetlana Borisova in court as saying that the Jehovah's Witnesses "pose a threat to the rights of the citizens, public order and public security."

It's the people who don't recognize the racism within themselves that can be the most damaging because they don't see it.

LEL I'm not even mad :ladyhaha:

Jehovah's are always weireded me out with the method they're using. We don't need that kind of thing in this life.

By all means, practice what you believe, but don't twist anyone hands to do the same as you too.

Smart. They are so boring  and annoying! Here where I live they stop people on the streets, come to people's homes to promote their religion! Like GTFOH believe what you want I don't care but stop throwing yourself down people's faces and try to convert them! :grr:

It's really concering what Putin is up to, his people are afraid of him and it's disgusting what is happening to LGBT people.

No one is killing anyone in this story! I'm just saying that those organisations should not promote themselves the way they do. It's annoying and unnecessary!

I know it's annoying but banning them is not the solution.

Ironically, they're the most peaceful religious group ever. I wish they wouldn't have to face this kind of injustice. I'm personally an atheist but I still find this ban unneccessary. Sure, Jehovah's witnesses are annoying but they are relatively harmless.

Doesn't surprise me bc we live in a world where a man the same shade of orange as my grandmother's kitchen wants to ban religious freedom in America too. Plus Russia is a country that publicly denies they aren't homophobes but teaches homophobia in schools, allows you to assault, rape and murder LGBT citizens and more. Nothing honestly surprises me anymore.
