Finnish Politician Vows to Stand by Bible

(OneNewsNow) A prominent European politician is facing criminal charges and a multi-year prison sentence after she shared biblical views on marriage and human sexuality that criticized homosexuality.

Finnish politician Päivi Räsänen, a longtime Christian Democrats member of parliament, is charged with three counts of “ethnic agitation” for comments she has made about homosexuals, The Helsinki Times reported.

In one instance, Räsänen (pictured above) criticized her own Lutheran Church of Finland in a social media post after it sponsored a “Pride 2019” event. The other criminal counts come from a radio interview on the topic of “What did Jesus think about gays?” and from her quotes in a pamphlet that suggests homosexuality is a psychological disorder.
