Does JW really qualify as an "extremist" organization?

Putin is in bed with the Russian Orthodox Church.  So if the Russian Church does not like you you get this.  Besides, it is JW. 

Someone online today referred to Trump as "Cult 45".  I thought that was pretty funny.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

That's about right. The Russian Orthodox Church with Putin want a monopoly on religion in Russia. They don't want competition so anything that is competition is clearly extremist. Don't forget the theology of the JWs, that Jesus isn't the second person of the Trinity, is in direct contrast the Orthodox theology of pretty mush the rest of Christendom so they are out on a limb.

Also, Putin is fed up answering the door to JWs......

Sorta, kinda.  They are a cult for sure.  End of times cult.  And their dumb beliefs genuinely hurt their idiot followers.  I almost hate to say it, but I would not mind seeing jw - and scientology- banned here. Also, southern baptists.  Buncha fuck heads. And any kind of Pentecostal loon.  Ban 'em.

Oh, Russian orthodox too.  Because, fuck them.
What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Gotta hand it to the JWs, banned in Russia and Nazi Germany.

They have a pretty strong presence where I live. They've modified their tactics from what I remember growing up from talking to you in your home to inviting you to some event during work hours on work days and using children to pass out their pamphlets. Pretty underhanded if you ask me. I like that JW's get the other sects so riled up though, still their indoctrination prowess is exceptionally strong. Look at jwb...
