Idiocracy of the day, ft. the Finnish Justice System
“Logiikalla tai niin sanotuilla järkiperusteluilla ei tämän vuoksi ole todellista merkitystä uskonnollisista kysymyksistä käytävissä keskusteluissa”
Loosely translated: “Logic, or so called reason has no real relevance in discussions about religion.”
This was a quote from the supreme court today, as the sentencing for Jussi Halla-Aho, noted free-speech advocate took place. He was fined, and similar statements were made, effectively killing freedom of speech at least in regards to religious issues. And yes, that means any other form of freedom of speech loses importance. Religion is not exempt from criticism and ridicule, as is not anything else. This is a huge blow.
