Putin Signs Measure Revoking Religious Freedom: ‘Most Restrictive in Post-Soviet History’


Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

“This new situation resembles the Soviet Union in 1929. At that time confession of faith was permitted only in church,” said Dr. Hannu Haukka, president of Great Commission Media Ministries, reports National Religious Broadcasters (NRB). “Practically speaking, we are back in the same situation. These anti-terrorist laws are some of the most restrictive laws in post-Soviet history.”

“We need to begin telling the truth about an increasingly aggressive actor in global affairs,” he said. “This Russian law would be an affront to free people everywhere—at home and abroad—who believe that rights of conscience—the rights to free speech and to freedom of religion—are pre-political.”

“We are distressed by the law and see it as repressive for believers in our country, because the law contradicts the Bible,” said a spokeswoman for the Council of Churches – Baptists. “We must assume there will be repression and persecution.”

One thought on “Putin Signs Measure Revoking Religious Freedom: ‘Most Restrictive in Post-Soviet History’

  1. President Putin is having a difficult time shutting up Islamic teachings so he revokes all ‘religious’ teachings? How will America and the rest of the world stop the growth of Islamic hate? Here in America do we change our Constitution or vote in another ‘Amendment’ that will bar Islam from our shores? Or do we do like Mr. Putin and make a blanket annulment toward all religions?
