Thousands Of Finnish People Leave State Church After Anti-Gay Comments Made During Televised Debate!
After a televised debate, during which Finland's Christian Democrats leader PĂ¤ivi RĂ¤sĂ¤nen made horrific anti-gay comments, a reported thousands of people have left the Finnish Evangelical-Lutheran Church, including 5,000 on Monday alone!
According to the Helsinki Times:
â€śThe number leaving increased sharply on 12 October following the broadcast of a debate programme focused on gay rights on Network 2 of the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle). By Monday 18 October, more than 24,000 people had left Finlandâ€™s Evangelical-Lutheran and Orthodox Churches.â€ť
We are so impressed with so many people taking a stand for what's right!
Hopefully someday the USA can show that kind of commitment to equal rights!
