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”

One of the world’s raunchiest rock stars, Prince is in his stacked heels and flamboyant suit strutting from house to house around an ordinary suburban estate.

Flanked by minders, he goes up a garden path, knocks on a door and politely asks the householder: “Would you like to talk about God?”

Prince admits his door-to-door missions as a Jehovah’s Witness raises eyebrows.

Sometimes he tries to escape his fame by going in disguise.

You only have to meet Prince for a few minutes to realise the extent to which God – rather than the colour purple – now influences how he lives.

Much of what he says, as well as his songwriting, revolves around his beliefs these days. Even the mysterious numbers he slots into his material are thought to be coded biblical references.

Incidentally, read what the Watchtower — the organization behind the Jehovah’s Witnesses at your door — had to say about music.
