    While I don't agree with all the tactics used by the Russian government, they clearly nailed it back in 1996 when designating the CoS a "destructive group".

    CoS IS destructive and every government on Earth that wishes to protect their people should take action to restrain the CoS from committing marketing fraud or abusing and exploiting their own members.

    No organization should be allowed to use fraudulent methods to recruit new members and/or destroy families which are the building block of any society.

    No legitimate religious organization withholds its true beliefs until you hand over hundreds of thousands of dollars. Nor do they fraudulently tell new members that their beliefs are compatible with other religions when that's absolute bullshit.

    Why any commission in the U.S. (governmental or otherwise) would seek to protect an organization which has a criminal history here in this country, infiltrating many government offices as well as other criminal acts without also seeking to protect society FROM this same organization is a mystery to me.
