Sadly, Russia is committing very similar atrocities against the Jehovah's Witnesses today...

Jehovah’s Witnesses initially enjoyed peaceful worship in Russia after the Russian Federation granted national registration in 1992. The Witnesses registered again in 1999 under the Law on Freedom of Conscience and Religious Associations. There are hundreds of local religious organizations of Jehovah’s Witnesses registered and operating throughout the country.

However, Jehovah’s Witnesses face increasing challenges that seriously threaten their religious freedom. Since 2009, law-enforcement agencies have sponsored a nationwide campaign against the Witnesses by misapplying the Law on Counteracting Extremist Activity. Russian courts have declared dozens of Jehovah’s Witnesses’ publications—including the Witnesses’ official website, jw.org—to be extremist. Police have searched hundreds of homes and places of worship. Prosecutors have charged Witnesses with administrative and criminal offenses merely for attending or conducting religious meetings.

Despite censure by the European Court of Human Rights and other international bodies, authorities in Russia have done little to alleviate the harassment and discrimination that Jehovah’s Witnesses experience. Law-enforcement officials are incrementally intensifying their efforts to restrict the activity of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Jehovah’s Witnesses​—171,828

Congregations​—2,315

Attendance at the annual Memorial of Christ’s death​—293,933

Ratio of Jehovah’s Witnesses to population​—1 to 850

Population​—146,074,524

Witnesses Imprisoned for Their Faith​—26

Jehovah's Witnesses were identified in the concentration camps with the purple triangle...

I bet that keeps them from trespassing on peoples' property and harassing them.

Perhaps watch the video before you pass judgement...

You've posted an hours worth of videos. Given your record of posting bull****, no thanks.

Jehovah's Witnesses would be fine if they didn't try to push their bull**** on others, but that's kinda their milieu. **** them.

I've been harassed all of my life by trespassing Jehovah's Witnesses. I've also learned enough about them that I know recruitment is one of their central tenets. I'm speaking from that experience.

Do you deny that evangelism is one of their central tenets? Do you deny that they come unannounced, and uninvited to peoples' homes to accomplish this? By any other standard, this is at best rude behavior, and at worst criminal. Like I said, **** them.

Then I can tell you without a doubt, people like you are not who we are searching for...try putting up a 'No Trespassing" sign so we won't waste anymore of your time or ours...

How about you crazy assholes just stop imposing yourselves on others, instead of requiring that I tell you not to?
