According to the letter the law is based on recommendations made in a 1997 report from the Belgian parliamentary commission that called for a law punishing those who abuse a person's weakness as a result of an "indoctrination by sects." The letter says the same commission drafted a list that labeled 189 religious groups as "sects" including, Hasidic Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, Zen Buddhists, Seventh-day Adventists, Mormons, Pentecostals, Amish, Quakers, five Catholic groups, and others.
What a bunch of deviants. Buddhists in particular, always causing trouble in Belgium. Yeah.
