This is probably Putin doing a solid for the Russian Orthodox church so that they keep telling people that God sent Pooty-Poot to be their Supreme Leader.

Putin excels at getting rid of witnesses.

First, they came for the Jehovah's Witnesses, and I said nothing because I wasn't a Jehovah's Witness...

Awesome headline.  At first I was like huh?  And then I saw TFA and was like Oh Snap.

I was expecting to read that Trump's Twitter account was shut down or something.

LordJiro: I was expecting to read that Trump's Twitter account was shut down or something.


Me too. I was expecting something like "Russian official issues a notice that all foreign policy communication released during the weekend will not be responded to until the following Monday in order to better serve glorious motherland" or something else that's a thinly veiled request for Trump to quit stirring up shiat during his syphiltic 3am twitterstorms that begs some kind of official response from the Russian government immediately after.

Why don't we have good justice like those? We should have great justice! Somebody set us up!

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

I guess the Red Army was short on watchtowers.

Putin has entered into the same kind of unholy union with Russian Orthodox church that the GOP has with American fundamentalist and Dominionist churches.

That was definitely my guess.  Someone certainly is assigned to read those 4 a.m. Saturday tweets....which of course it wouldn't be morning in Russia.

I thought it was going to be about Trump's Saturday morning tweets.

Whenever a religious wingnut is handing out pamphlets or whatever take as many as you can get and then toss them in the recycle bin. They only have so much money to print that crap and getting it out of circulation saves others from being bothered by them.
 
2017-04-20 10:49:17 PM  
For the record, conservatives, THIS is what religious persecution looks like.

You know who else outlawed the Jehovah's Witnesses ?

they were told that they didn't see anything, if they know what's good for them

It could be because it's a way the cia has infiltrated for years. That and dumb hikers.

Wasted effort...they all think THEIR brand of Christianity is the correct flavor.

So, they had a special designation for Jewish Jehovah's Witnesses? Something tells me that wasn't used a lot.

Hello neighbor, have you accepted beer and boobies as your lord and savior?

That's what Supersoakers are for.

Amen.

Preach it, brother.

Yeah, they're gonna let Jehovah down, but it's either that or the Godfather'll kill their families...

It's odd that they haven't shut down Islam (and seized all its property) yet.

Why should anyone care about this?  JW's love Trump; therefore, they agree with Putin 100% as well.
It's the first thing I've heard out a Russia in a long time that I agree with.

Then again, I think all religions are retarded.

Jehovah's Witnesses are politically neutral; they don't "love" Trump, Putin, Kim Jong-Un, Marine Le Pen, or Justin Trudeau.  Or any other world leader for that matter.

I should make that suggestion.  Apparently people are pretty serious about him, so I doubt it would go over well.
