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.
