(Worthy News) – The United States’ commission in defense of religious freedoms has condemned Finnish efforts to prosecute Christians for intolerant speech against homosexuality.
United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) Chairwoman Nadine Maenza gave a statement Thursday in support of Former Minister of the Interior Dr. Päivi Räsänen, and Juhana Pohjola, a bishop of the Finnish Lutheran Church. Räsänen was charged with three counts of criminal behavior after talking about her religious views regarding sex and marriage on a radio talk show.
“Religious freedom and freedom of expression protect the right to peacefully express one’s beliefs in public, even if others might disagree with those beliefs. #Finland should not be prosecuting Päivi Räsänen and Juhana Pujola,” Maenza wrote. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
