Update your pastor on MSM nonsense that get aired.
I assume he just read the article and bought it hook, line and sinker.
Explain what is the anti-cult law? Why have such a law? Can a person share the Gospel of Christ on the street without a permit like here in America?
This is primarily against NGO's who constantly try to undermine VVP and the Orthodox Church. Religious toleration here is vast and normal, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, whatever, all get along well and live side by side. The evangelicals seem to have a penchant for trying to undermine The State and after years of warnings and evangelicals actively supporting Ukraine events publicly it was decided enough was enough. If you have an official Church, no problem, let those who may be interested come to your Church. If you want to worship in your home with friends and acquaintances, no one cares and no one will kick in your door. Just don't stand at the gates of the local Orthodox Church or Mosque and try to dragoon worshipers to come to your Church. That is considered to be bad form.
As an aside, the Baptist Church in this berg is still operating and no one has mentioned shutting it down.
Thanks for the report. We need this sort of information offset the hate propaganda generated by the NATO mass media.
You are most welcome. I'm just telling the truth.
