Päivi Räsänen, a courageous Member of Parliament of Finland, is back on trial for the Bible. Räsänen was acquitted of criminal "hate speech" charges for quoting the Bible, specifically Paul's description of homosexuality as sin in Romans 1:24-27, and for publishing a pamphlet titled, "Male and Female He Created Them." Prosecutors have now appealed the case, hoping to relitigate the entire case in front of a new audience. "Unlike many other legal systems, under Finnish law, the prosecutor can appeal 'not guilty' verdicts all the way to the Supreme Court of Finland," explained FRC President Tony Perkins. "Yes, unfortunately, that is what we expect," responded Lorcán Price, attorney for ADF International who represents Räsänen. "This case is now headed to the Court of Appeal first."
