Just a reminder that there are places in the world that are not quite as evolved as those of us in America.

Well, the more northern states in America.

In a historic decision, India’s Supreme Court has ruled that gay sex is no longer a criminal offence.

The ruling overturns a 2013 judgement that upheld a colonial-era law, known as section 377, under which gay sex is categorised as an “unnatural offence“.

The court has now ruled discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is a fundamental violation of rights.

Campaigners outside the court cheered and some broke down in tears as the ruling was handed down.

Although public opinion in India’s biggest cities has been in favour of scrapping the law, there remains strong opposition among religious groups and in conservative rural communities.

It is always the conservatives and the religious folks standing in the way of progress isn’t it? 

Well good for India!

Any time a nation moves into the 21st Century that is good news for the world.

    Since I spent the first 17 years of my life living black in GA under Jim Crow laws, and since I had very progressive, forward-looking parents, I cannot stand to see anyone discriminated against for any reason. I’ve also been a Christian for almost 60 years now, and I don’t understand why some other Christians have a propensity for sticking their noses in others’ affairs, sexual and otherwise. One of my first cousins is lesbian, and you wouldn’t meet a finer individual. All of this meddling in others’ business has never made sense to me, and I don’t think it ever will. If one is not involved in a relationship, one should mind one’s own business. In fact, I’ll go as far as to actually write it: the Christians that claim to be ”bothered” by others losing their eternal souls because of “this” or “that” have no power to save their own, so their primary focus should be on saving their own souls.
