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.

Police Force That Defended Convicted Pedophile Against “Hateful” Comments Enforces Gender Neutral Warrant Cards

Woke to the bone.

The same police force in the UK that defended a convicted pedophile against “hateful” Twitter comments also enforces ‘gender neutral’ warrant cards and claims stores labeling sanitary products “feminine care” is transphobic, it has been revealed.

Earlier this week, Sussex Police caused controversy by threatening people who had the temerity to ‘misgender’ Sally Ann Dixon, a transgender who was a man when he sexually abused seven children.

“Sussex Police do not tolerate any hateful comments towards their gender identity regardless of crimes committed,” the police force tweeted in response to comments asking if the pedophile would be sent to a women’s prison or if the crime was recorded as having been committed by a woman.

The police force later had to apologize for the tweet after they were admonished by Home Secretary Suella Braverman to, “Focus on catching criminals not policing pronouns.”

It has now been revealed that the same police force eliminated the use of warrant cards used to determine the gender of their own officers.

“Sussex Police scrapped warrant cards that identified male officers with the letters A or C and female officers with B or D in November last year. The move prompted complaints that it would make it harder to find a female officer to carry out duties only a woman could do – such as searching a female suspect,” reports the Telegraph.

The same police force also faced ridicule in 2017 when one of their sergeants took to Twitter to warn high street stores that putting “feminine care” signs on women’s sanitary products was transphobic and breached gender equality rules.

Following the backlash over defending the convicted pedophile, Katy Bourne, the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, contacted Jo Shiner, Sussex’s chief constable, to tell her that police “had somewhat lost the plot” in expressing views “that appeared to ignore or demean the experiences of the victims in this case.”

“Police… must balance their communications so that they don’t appear to be prioritising the hurt feelings of criminals over the trauma and heartache of victims and their families,” wrote Bourne.

As we highlight in the video below, while police are keen on defending convicted child molesters against mean tweets, they’re not so pleasant towards ordinary citizens who use naughty words.

UK Police Department Savaged For Defending Convicted Serial Pedophile Against ‘Hate’

Forced to apologise for threatening women who ‘misgendered’ the child rapist

A police department in the UK has come under fire after it appeared to defend a convicted pedophile, asserting that anyone ‘misgendering’ the individual would not be tolerated.

Sussex Police responded to posts from women’s rights campaigners who expressed concerns that the 58-year-old transgender pedophile, going by the name of Sally Ann Dixon, could be incarcerated in a women’s prison.

The individual, a biological male previously known as John Stephen Dixon until 2004, was sentenced to prison after being found guilty of 30 indecent assaults against children dating from 1989 to 1996. 

Rebel News reporter Ian Miles Cheong noted that police issued a thinly veiled threat to investigate anyone misgendering the child rapist for potential ‘hate crimes’.

The department tweeted “Hi, Sussex Police do not tolerate any hateful comments towards their gender identiy regardless of crimes committed. This is irrelevant to the crime that has been committed and investigated.”

The response was swift and devastating, prompting the police department to delete their posts:

The department then issued a follow up APOLOGISING and stating “we recognise the rights of the public to express themselves freely”:

Too late:

Women’s rights campaigner Maya Forstater has called for a review “up and down the justice system from the police to CPS to courts and prison system to record and speak truthfully about sex.”

    Vanderbilt Pediatric Transgender Clinic Nukes Website After Matt Walsh Exposes ‘Big Money Maker’ Motive

    Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) has deleted the website of their Transgender Clinic after journalist Matt Walsh detailed a doctor’s promotion of transgender surgeries as a “big money maker” for the institution.

    Videos obtained by Walsh also show apparent threats made against VUMC medical professionals who objected to the procedures, even for religious reasons.

    Walsh posted his findings in a lengthy Twitter thread on Tuesday. In it, Dr. Shayne Taylor can be seen bragging about how she convinced Nashville to get into gender transitions because it’s a “big money maker,” especially because the surgeries require a lot of “follow ups.”

    According to Dr. Ellen Clayton, those with “conscientious objections” are “problematic,” and anyone who opposes the transgender surgery program will face “consequences.” 

    If you are going to assert conscientious objection, you have to realize that that is problematic,” said Clayton. “You are doing something to another person, and you are not paying the cost for your belief. I think that is a … real issue.”

    “I just want you to take home that saying that you’re not going to do something because of your conscientious — because of your religious beliefs, is not without consequences, and should not be without consequences,” she continues. “And I just want to put that out there.”

    “We are given an enormous — if you don’t want to do this kind of work, don’t work at Vanderbilt.

    Marketing to children

    UVMC also makes “Trans Buddies” and other services available to children, “including chemical castration,” writes Walsh – who added that they altered their website within the last month, yet forgot to delete a video from Vanderbilt Psychiatry’s YouTube channel from 2020 which admits they will give hormones to children as young as 13.

    The university will also perform double mastectomies on adolescent girls.

    In response to Walsh’s reporting, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) called for an investigation into VUMC.

    “The ‘pediatric transgender clinic’ at Vanderbilt University Medical Center raises serious moral, ethical and legal concerns,” Lee told the Daily Wire. “We should not allow permanent, life-altering decisions that hurt children or policies that suppress religious liberties, all for the purpose of financial gain. We have to protect Tennessee children, and this warrants a thorough investigation.”

    Meanwhile, Vanderbilt nuked their entire Transgender Clinic website.
