Anti-Gay Preacher Case to Supreme Court

Published onsdag 9 mars 2005 kl 12.50
Åke Green

The Prosecutor-General will take the case against the Swedish Pentecostal pastor who was convicted and then freed of incitement against homosexuals to the Supreme Court here.

The Prosecutor-General said a balance is needed between freedom of speech, freedom of religion and what is legally considered as slander.

In a 2003 sermon, Åke Green said gays were more likely than others to rape children and animals and branded homosexuality as a ”cancer.” He was convicted in June 2004 and sentenced to 30 days in prison, this was overturned by an appeals court in February.
