Sodomy and religious freedom...
Several years ago I was speaking to Ken Sande and he told me of the growing movement in Canada to prosecute Christian pastors, churches, bookstores, etc. who proclaimed Scripture's doctrine of sexuality, particularly its condemnation of sodomy. Sande's organization, Peacemakers was at that time involved in providing legal counsel for Canadian Christians under such attack.
Since then, my own congregation has had occasion to use the services of another Christian legal organization, the Alliance Defense Fund, and I commend them to our readers for their godly work defending the free exercise of religion.
A good example of that work is their involvement in the notorious case of the Swedish pastor, Ake Green, whose prosecution for preaching Scripture's truths concerning sexuality is before Sweden's supreme court. (Here's the text of Pastor Green's sermon.)
Here are the details concerning Pastor Green's case as well as a call to prayer published by the Alliance Defense Fund. And here is where you may be kept abreast of other religious freedom cases the ADF considers noteworthy. I warmly commend the ADF to our good readers, both for their financial and prayer support, and also their training--those who are in the legal profession, that is.
