Indian churches call for homosexuality to be decriminalized

A coalition of Christian churches in India has called for the abolishment of laws criminalizing homosexuality.

The National Council of Churches in India (NCCI) represents about 14 million people. It made the call to decriminalize homosexuality in an open letter.

Its open letter came after the Supreme Court of India agreed to review Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. That code outlaws ‘carnal intercourse against the order of nature’, which includes same-sex relations.

‘Homosexuality and homo-eroticism have been practiced in India from time immemorial,’ the letter read.
