What is your opinion of this move? Should Jehovah's Witnesses be banned from meeting to pray, read their bibles and sing spiritual songs together?
Do you think such a move could be envisioned elsewhere?
If you are non-religious, would you welcome such measures as a move to ultimately eliminate organized religion?
