Christian fundamentalist sentenced for preaching homophobia

A 63-year-old Christian fundamentalist was on Friday given a suspended sentence for having delivered a homophobic “sermon” on the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. He said he had only quoted the Bible.

The Zurich District Court found the defendant guilty of discrimination and incitement to hatred. He was also convicted of obstructing authorities by running away when the police tried to arrest him.
