Jehovah Witnesses say harassed in south Sudan


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Saturday January 8, 2011

Jehovah’s Witnesses in a south Sudan town have been harassed and expelled and a place of worship was burned down after it was alleged they had told voters not to take part in a secession referendum, members of the sect said.

Members of the small minority Christian group in Sudan said the sect was wrongly accused of preventing its followers from taking part for religious reasons in the vote on Sunday that will likely see the south secede.

Theologically the movement is considered to be a cult of Christianity. The organization behind it claims to be God’s only representative on earth, and yet keeps changing its mind on many issues, including voting.

The Governor of Western Equatoria state (Sudan) last December referred to Jehovah Witnesses who did not register to vote in Southern Sudan’s independence referendum as “traitors”.
