Boy, the persecution complex of some Christians raises its ignorant head (again
) in that op-ed. i'm so tired of people who suffer from that brand of paranoia citing the Swedish case of Ake Green in support of their fear-filled claims. While true that Green was initially convicted of violating Sweden's anti-hate speech laws and sentenced to a 30 day jail sentence, his sentence was overturned on appeal, and that reversal was upheld again in a second appeal to Sweden's Supreme Court. Green was never actually jailed.
The demand for equal rights in every vocation of life is just and fair; but, after all, the most vital right is the right to love and be loved.
Emma Goldman (1869-1940)
