    While I am convinced that any Government getting involved in Religion is not a good thing, I would like to see pressure put on JWs and any religious organization to stop violating the rights of those who dissent. It should be obvious that alienating one's family by disfellowhipping a person is wrong and it is a negative influence on the culture of any society. Strong family relationships are important for any culture to prosper.

    Of course, some who dissent against the Russian leader/government, are killed.....

    Is JWdotOrg still doing a play by play of the proceedings? I was wondering if they are including this testimony from these former members. As it is, they usually wipe all memory of such ones away. For example, if they have their picture in a pub or as part of an illustration, they are eventually replaced with someone else.
