Following Harsh Anti-Gay Program, Over 20,000 Resign From Finland’s Lutheran Church

21 Oct

From YLE.fi

The number of people resigning from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the wake of last week’s TV discussion programme on homosexuality and the church continues to rise. The number of resignations has now exceeded 20,000. Minister of Culture Stefan Wallin points the finger of blame for the mass resignations at the leader of the Christian Democrats, Päivi Räsänen

In last week’s TV debate on homosexuality and the church, Räsänen presented an uncompromising, fundamentalist view on the issue.

 

It has been suggested more than once on this blog that the vicious and intolerant messages broadcasted and preached by the fundamentalists  has done more to drive people from  religion than anything the “Four Horsemen” alone can accomplish.
