India court restores law against gay sex that was formerly overruled

I am not sure what to think about this. On the one hand, it's an intrusion into people's private sex lives. I don't see much value in making it unlawful for adults to do things with each other in privacy.

On the other hand, the gay lobby is pushing so much bad policy all over the world, it seems India and Russia are reacting (perhaps in a reactionary way) to the threat of real overreach. Perhaps India and Russia, one could say, are at a loss as to how to stop their country from being overrun with gay curriculum, gay culture, gay propaganda, adult-teenage gay sex, same-sex parenting, etc., so they just want to shut the barn door before the cow gets out.

I can't endorse a view on this one way or another, especially since India is one of the few places where I don't have correspondents yet. We'll keep a close watch.
