Persecution

Russia's high court considers banning Jehovah's Witnesses - UPI.com
UPI reports: "Russia's Supreme Court on Wednesday considered a request by the government to ban Jehovah's Witnesses and declare the Christian group an extremist organization. On March 16, the Russian government filed suit to outlaw the organization, which is already considered an extremist group in St. Petersburg where it is headquartered. The group has 175,000 members in Russia and 395 branches across the country. Worldwide there are more than 7 million members."

Comment: I'm not very familiar with the Jehovah's Witnesses. I wonder what they could have done to make the Russians think they are extremists? It's not like they are beheading people, right?
