Via AAN:

A Christian politician in Finland is now being put on trial for the alleged crime of ‘ethnic agitation’ after opposing her church’s decision to sponsor an LGBT march.

As The Daily Wire reports:

As ADF International, which is supporting Räsänen, reported, “Police investigations against Räsänen started in June 2019. As an active member of the Finnish Lutheran church, she addressed the leadership of her church and questioned its official sponsorship of the LGBT event ‘Pride 2019,’ accompanied by an image of a bible text.”

ADF International noted that Räsänen is being “prosecuted for the crime of ‘ethnic agitation,’ under the section of ‘war crimes and crimes against humanity’ in the Finnish criminal code.” The prosecution argues that Räsänen’s views are discriminatory towards minorities.

Räsänen stated last week, “I will continue to stand for what I believe and what I have written. And I will speak and write about these things, because they are a matter of conviction, not only an opinion. I trust that we still live in a democracy, and we have our constitution and international agreements that guarantee our freedom of speech and religion.”

Will similar laws like the one that has seen Räsänen prosecuted in Finland one day make their debut in the U.S.? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

I have no doubt there will be a case like this in the U.S. When you read about the “clubs” in schools, led by teachers that are “recruiting” children to encourage them in believing they are transgender, then you understand how determined these people are to push their agenda. Unfortunately, the LGBQT people have turned this issue into an all out battle against anyone that might have a different opinion and it seems that part of their strategy is to accuse Christians of hate crimes. God knows our hearts.

Prepare for this to become a norm. All Bible believing Christians will face persecution for
believing in the scriptures and voicing their opinions on abortion, LGBTQ issues, and a
host of other issues that are being thrown at us by the “woke” mob.
Just a tip for all of you who fight the war against God, He wins!

Millions are dying because of the Fauci/China bioweapon development and dispersal…

…any mention of that being a “crime against humanity” vs. a gay pride March????

I believe God will bless this politician and He will judge those who have judged this politician.

It is already happening by unofficial censorship by technology firms, media trials before a person is charged with a crime. In fact the Media creating a crime where it isn’t against the law. Supporting Antifa and left wing activist. Calling anyone who speaks out white supremacist even if they are Black or Hispanic, or from India but doesn’t agree with left policies.
Coming to US, it is already here, and Congress is attempting to move it to law now. Look at the Jan 6 hearings. A riot broke out (not insurrection), the protestors held without bond or charges for months in solitary. And those charged unlawful entry, not one charge of insurrection or a crime above a misdemeanor. Unless disruption of Congress preventing carrying out its duty is a felony at which point several Congressmen should be charged with that. In this case it was delayed 3 hrs only. How long did the riots across US with far higher death tolls last? And how long were they held in jail before Congressmen and our future VP bailed them out?

And this is on its way to the US. Looks like I’m gonna have to save up for a boat which I will call the Mayflower and head off to some distant land where freedom of religion is tolerated.
