Finnish Minister Charged With ‘Hate Crimes’ For Citing Bible Verse Acquitted in Landmark Ruling

Hurting gay people’s feelings isn’t yet a crime.

A Helsinki court has dismissed all “hate speech” charges against former Finnish minister Päivi Räsänen, ruling that her citation of Bible verses which described homosexuality as “shameful” and “unnatural” is part of religious free speech.

Prosecutors had claimed that Päivi Räsänen’s remarks were illegal because they represented an “affront to the equality and dignity of homosexuals.”

However, at least according to the law as it stands, hurting gay people’s feelings isn’t yet a crime.

Räsänen, an MP for Finland’s Christian Democrats party, posted comments criticizing the Finnish Lutheran Church for associating itself with LGBT activist causes.

Accusing the church of “elevating shame and sin to a point of pride,” Räsänen included an image of a Bible verse which denounced gay lifestyles as “shameful” and “unnatural.”

The former minister was subjected to hours of police interrogation over her beliefs and subsequently charged.

However, she avoided potential prison time after being acquitted in what had been seen as a major international litmus test for free speech.

The court unanimously declared that it “was not the district court’s duty to interpret biblical terms” and that “there must be an overriding social reason for interfering with and restricting freedom of expression.”

Räsänen was simply attempting to “defend the concept of family and marriage between man and woman,” the court ruled, ordering the Finnish state to cover the cost of her €60,000 legal defense costs.

“I am very thankful that the court acknowledged the threat to freedom of speech and ruled in our favor. I feel as if a burden has been taken off my shoulder. Although I am grateful for the opportunity to defend freedom of speech, I hope that this ruling will help others avoid going through the same trial,” Räsänen said after the verdict.

As we highlighted last year, a Christian pastor in the UK was arrested by police on the streets of London after a member of the public reported him for the “homophobic” comment of saying that marriage was between a man and a woman.

Man Who Attacked Dave Chappelle Admits Being ‘Triggered’ By LGBTQ Jokes

“I identify as bisexual and I wanted him [Chappelle] to know what he said was triggering”

The man who attacked comedian Dave Chappelle on stage in LA earlier this month and was later charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon has admitted that he was ‘triggered’ by Chappelle joking about trans people.

At the time of the attack, Chappelle joked that “it was a trans man” who jumped on stage. As it turns out, that wasn’t far from the reality.

The man, 23 year old Isaiah Lee, who was carrying a knife and a replica firearm when he was arrested reportedly told  The New York Post “I identify as bisexual and I wanted him [Chappelle] to know what he said was triggering,”

Speaking to reporters from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, Lee also stated “I wanted him to know that next time, he should consider first running his material by people it could affect.”

Lee also took offence to jokes Chappelle made about homelessness, saying he had previously been homeless and that the jokes made him ’emotional and upset.’

“It’s a struggle and I wanted Dave Chappelle to know it’s not a joke,” Lee said.

After he was arrested, Lee was also found to be the suspect in an attempted murder dating from December 2021, when a person was stabbed at a ‘transitional housing program’ for homeless people.

Lee denies being mentally ill and entered a plea of not guilty on counts of battery and possession of a weapon with intent to assault as relates to the Chappelle incident.

As we noted at the time, Lee was quickly detained after he stormed the stage and tried to tackle Chappelle. Lee was pounded on by the comedian’s entourage and Chappelle himself, resulting in a broken arm.

    Biological Man Powers To Victory In WOMEN’s Surfing Event

    Would have won in the mens division with the score ‘she’ recorded

    In another flagrant example of cultural insanity, a person who is clearly biologically a man was allowed to easily win a prominent women’s surfing competition in Australia.

    Surfing Western Australia notes that trans competitor Sasha Jane Lowerson was awarded first place in both the Open Women’s Longboard and Open Women’s Logger.

    It wasn’t even close, with a 4 point and 2.5 point gap between second place in the respective events.

    Lowerson would have won in the mens division with the score ‘she’ recorded:

    Lowerson said “To be the first transgender woman competing in surfing hasn’t been an easy ride emotionally but the amount of support I’ve been showed has been phenomenal and I’m so grateful to be involved, welcomed and embraced within the longboard community in Australia.”

    Well done indeed fella.

    When Lowerson was a man called Ryan Egan as short a time ago as 2019, he was winning male surfing competitions.

    Surf site Beach Grit notes that Egan/Lowerson is now “absolutely demolishing the women’s division.”

    Lowerson’s success is similar to that of transgender UPenn swimmer Lia Thomas, another biological male who has dominated championship races in the women’s division.

    There has been backlash among some swim coaches and officials over Thomas being allowed to compete in the women’s division, with one prominent USA official urging that “Everything fair about swimming is being destroyed.”

    The World Swimming Coaches Association (WSCA) has recommended that FINA, a governing body for aquatic sports, create a transgender division to account for men’s biological advantages over women.

    School Board Director Plans ‘Queer Night’ For Children Hosted Inside Sex Shop

    Not creepy at all.

    A school board director in Washington state plans to host a “Queer Youth Open Mic Night” at a sex shop she owns and has invited all children aged “0 to 18 years old” to attend.

    Yes, really.

    Jenn Mason, a member of the Bellingham Public Schools board of directors, will hold the June 1st event at her WinkWink Boutique in Bellingham.

    “Come share and hold space for this celebration and stage for young queer voices in our community,” states a Facebook post advertising the event, encouraging all children aged “0 to 18 years old” to attend.

    Mason’s WinkWink sex shop asserts, “We believe that normalizing, accepting and affirming all bodies, identities and gender experiences is an inherently political act. Pleasure is our revolution.”

    Mason also offers “sex coaching” to help couples achieve orgasms and advertises how she can help clients in “pleasing yourself or a partner.”

    The sex shop owner claimed the event for children would be separated from the area containing the sex toys, although Seattle radio host Jason Rantz wasn’t convinced.

    “The sex shop isn’t living up to its promise to be ‘inclusive, never creepy’. This event is inappropriately inclusive and extremely creepy,” said Rantz.

    The school district tried to separate itself from the event, telling Fox News that the “community event is not sponsored by our schools or school district.”

    The event is likely to increase concerns held by parents that members of the LGBTQ movement are hiding behind it in order to groom children into adopting a gay or trans identity.

    As we highlighted last month, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki declared that kindergarten age children should be discussing whether they are “a girl or a boy” with teachers.

    One in five Gen Z adults now identify as LGBTQ, while the number of total Americans doing the same has doubled in a decade, according to a Gallup poll released back in February.

    Obviously, there isn’t a huge increase in young people being “born gay,” but many have been socially re-educated via culture and the schooling system to adopt LGBTQ identities, a path that normally leads to isolation, manic depression and in some cases suicide, before we even consider the moral aspects.

    The results of the poll underscored how mainstream culture’s increasing obsession with identity politics is manipulating young people into identifying as LGBTQ because they think it’s cool, edgy or makes them unique.

    However, given that such brainwashing is being imposed via top down social engineering, it’s not edgy or unique at all.

    Nor is it very healthy given the greater risk of mental illness and depression associated with such lifestyles.

    A 2021 study found that lesbian, gay and bisexual people were more than twice as likely as heterosexuals to “have a long-term mental health condition.”
