Swedish Pastor Acquitted After Anti-Gay Sermon
Green, 63, was the first clergyman convicted under Sweden’s tough hate crimes (search) laws, which make it a crime to make inflammatory remarks against racial, religious or national groups. The laws were ratified in 2003 to include homosexuals

This is great news!!! He was aquitted on appeal and the decision specifically mentioned his right to urge others to follow his religious interpretation.

He’s not out of the woods yet, the conviction could still be upheld. This ruling came from a regional appeals court, and it sounds as if it will go to Swedens Supreem Court before this is settled.
