Finnish pastor defrocked for speaking out against terrorists
A Finnish Priest has been defrocked for openly speaking out against a terrorist website hosted in the country.
"The Espo chapter of the Lutheran Church of Finland has dismissed Juha Molari as the pastor of the Raseborg Lutheran parish. He has been defrocked and deprived of all means of subsistence," Johan Backman, Finnish human rights activist and the Chairman of the Finnish-Caucasus Friendship Society, told Interfax on Thursday.
Juha Molari had earlier been charged in Helsinki for inciting racial hatred, after he described one of the world's most-wanted criminals as a terrorist. Police questioned pastor Molari after he gave an interview to RT in which he discussed Doku Umarov, the man behind the Moscow Metro and airport bombings.
