Christian Democrats protest priest’s sentence for defaming homosexuals

THE SLOVAK Christian Democrats are outraged by the case of a Swedish priest sentenced to a month in prison for defamatory statements about homosexuals, the daily SME wrote.

The party is determined to protect the freedom of speech in Europe, said its top officials.

According to party chairman Pavol Hrušovský, the sentence is a sign that torture based on anti-discrimination legislation has began and he plans to send a protest letter to his Swedish counterpart.

Interior Minister Vladimír Palko talked about the tyranny of "leftist-liberal ideology" in Europe. He wants to discuss the issue with the Swedish ambassador.

The Christian Democratic Movement is against Europe's liberal attitude towards homosexuals.
