Relaxe and judgment annulled for the two Christians of Cognac accused of homophobia

On August 21, 2015, we informed you that two Christians were sued for having distributed a leaflet containing the testimony of the conversion of a homosexual person. The next day we invited you to discover thefull text of this prospectus.

SOn social networks, many of you had reacted, not finding that there was nothing homophobic in this testimony. However, under pressure from the Adhéos association, the two Christians appeared before the Angoulême court on September 7, 2015. In France, country of freedom, equality and fraternity, they were in court for having testified to their faith.

November 2, 2015 fell deliberate, the two Christians were convicted of "inciting discrimination against a group of people on the basis of their sexual orientation or identity". Remaining convinced that nothing in their approach was against the law they appealed, thehearing was held on April 6, 2016.

We are really happy to announce today the complete relaxation of our two friends! One of them sent us this little press release:

The deliberations of the appeal trial for the dissemination of so-called "homophobic" leaflets fell this Wednesday, May 25:

  • Complete relaxation for the two Christians of Cognac
  • Judgment set aside for procedural violation
  • Rejection of all prosecution requests

We are pleased that the law has been applied. Indeed, the cancellation of the entire procedure is completely legal and thus respects everyone's freedom of expression.

May freedom of expression and freedom of conscience live in our country, far from ideological pressures and single thought!

We are proud to be Christians, proud of our faith and proud of our Bible!
