India reaffirms law banning gay sex

The Indian Supreme Court just overturned a ruling by a lower court decriminalizing gay sex. The way the law stands now anyone convicted of homosexual behavior in India can be sentenced up to life in prison. If you would like to sign a petition protesting this decision, you can go to this site: http://www.avaaz.org/en/indias_gay_outrage_loc/?bGzvreb&v=32698

For more info, here's an article from BBC news about it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-25329065

Russia, and now India, and half the other countries in the world. It's a long haul to raise humanity from ages old prejudice about something that is quite commonplace in all cultures.
