I read in the papers these days that polls are projecting a big win for the anti-immigrant, anti-European True Finn party (in Finnish, Perussuomalaiset, which oddly enough the party itself wishes to translate into English as The Finns, a rendering which to me begs a host of questions).

The rise of this party is linked to a number of causes, including xenophobia.

Has the Orthodox Church of Finland spoken out against the growing xenophobia in Finnish society?
