I find it amusing that the Watchtower was working to be designated as "victims of political repression".
One cannot be "politically neutral" and be politically repressed.
Political repression is the persecution of an individual or group within society for political reasons, particularly for the purpose of restricting or preventing their ability to take part in the political life of a society thereby reducing their standing among their fellow citizens.
So, the governing bastards feel that Putin is trying to keep Jehovah's Witnesses out of politics. Interesting...
All the Russians had to do is to ask Watchtower one question. "Do you feel that you have been politically marginalized, that Russia is trying to prevent your participation in Russian politics?"
I'd like to have seen the looks on their faces. What could they say? "No, we are politically neutral?" Ha. Then the court would say "then you cannot be a victim of political repression!"
And if WT boys answer "Yes" then they are not politically neutral.
Alway the hypocrisy...
What evidence could Watchtower boys present to the court to show that the Russian State is trying to prevent Jehovah's Witnesses entry into Russian politics?
