Catholics tell Indian court that being gay is a foreign cultural import

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

They're using an argument often used by bigots in Africa - that being gay is somehow a foreign invention. Times of India:

"It would be a horrendous situation in Indian society if it is allowed. The organizations (fighting for gay rights) should try to bring such people to national mainstream by providing counselling them," said senior advocate Radha Krishana, appearing for a Catholic organization.

He said approving such acts is against the concept of family and marriage.

"India has got its own culture, tradition and custom. We cannot follow other culture. These things are being dumped in the country," he said.
