Austria, Proclaiming Catholic Doctrine on Homosexuality Is A Crime

On September 5, Günther Schneeweiß-Arnoldstein, the editor of kreuz-net.at was convicted in Vienna, Austria, of an alleged “incitement against homosexuals”. He received a suspended four month sentence. The decision can be appealed.

In a December 2015 article Schneeweiß-Arnoldstein had called practiced homosexuality “fornication” and “anomaly” in keeping with Catholic doctrine. Further he stated that syphilis is a “punishment of God”. His lawyer showed at the court that these statements are part of Catholic moral doctrine.

Judge Gerald Wagner did not question that the phrases are Catholic teaching but called them a “humiliation” of homosexuals.

In February 2015 charges were pressed against militant gay protestors who displayed in Vienna posters with the text: “Fist Christians?” Austrian prosecutors refused to start an investigation calling this “part of a pluralistic dialogue and freedom of speech”.
