Are Bible verses allowed to be displayed in public?

A court in Berlin has upheld a restaurant owner’s right to freedom of speech and religion and found the search warrant issued by the district court unlawful.

Young-Ai Park was subjected to a police search and a fine for hanging prints of Bible verses in her restaurant.

Among many others, the prints included verses from the bible on human sexuality. Park was accused of so-called “hate speech” and investigated by the police.
