I’m Torn

I just read in the news that a Russian court has banned the Jehovah’s Witnesses from the city of Moscow. Yeah, a court made being a Jehovah’s Witness illegal. I’m not quite sure how to feel about that. Part of me is really upset that such a stifling of religious freedom could be allowed to take place anywhere in the world for any reason, but part of me is pretty happy for a lot of Russians who can now answer their door again when somebody knocks on it without fear of getting stuck talking to some guy with a handfull of books trying to sell you his beliefs like some sort of traveling insurance salesman.
