CWN Editor's Note: Päivi Räsänen, a member of Finland’s parliament and former cabinet member, is facing a third court trial on “hate speech” charges stemming from her quotation of Bible verses condemning homosexual acts.

Räsänen won acquittal on the charges in a unanimous district-court decision, which was upheld by an appeals. Nevertheless prosecutors have confirmed that they are bringing the case before the country’s supreme court.
