|Subject: Mystics get the boot: Russia Bans Jehovah’s Witnesses, Calling It an Extremist Group Thu Apr 20, 2017 10:41 pm|| |
|MOSCOW — Russia’s Supreme Court on Thursday declared Jehovah’s Witnesses, a Christian denomination that rejects violence, an extremist organization, banning the group from operating on Russian territory and putting its more than 170,000 Russian worshipers in the same category as Islamic State militants.|
The ruling, which confirmed an order last month by the Justice Ministry that the denomination be “liquidated” — essentially eliminated or disbanded — had been widely expected. Russian courts rarely challenge government decisions, no matter what the evidence.
Now do the same for the Russian Orthodox Church.
