Other cases drawing U.S. scrutiny included those of a Jehovah's Witness, Dennis Christensen, who has been held without trial since last year, the U.S. said.

1 Timothy 2:1-2

2 First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be made concerning all sorts of men, 2 concerning kings and all those who are in high positions, so that we may go on leading a calm and quiet life with complete godly devotion and seriousness

And here is Russia's reply: 

http://www.newsweek.com/russia-says-us-no-moral-right-demand-jehovahs-witnesses-release-983932

 

Russia has said the U.S. government has “no moral right” to demand the release of religious or political prisoners, such as detained Jehovah’s Witnesses.

 

In response, the Russian Embassy in the U.S. said: “Members of the American establishment have no moral right to blame Russia and demand that someone be released,” The Moscow Times reported.

The embassy continued that the U.S. is implementing a “finely honed propaganda strategy of the fight for freedom of conscience, worship [and] democratic values.” It said that the U.S. “needs to justify the structures recognized as extremist in other countries.”

 

Russia’s Justice Ministry claimed that the religious group poses a threat to “public order and public security.” Government officials also accused them of preaching that their beliefs are exclusive and supreme to all others.

Interesting way to spell 'peace and security'.....

So, what are you trying to say? When they get “rid” of Jehovah’s Witnesses, they will cry “Peace and Security?” 😃

Now that would be an interesting turn of affairs we didn’t quite see coming.
