Gay rights activists wave flags as they attend a protest against a verdict by the Supreme Court in New Delhi December 11, 2013.

Hundreds of people have taken to the streets to protest the decision by India’s Supreme Court to uphold the law criminalizing homosexuality.

Even more have joined the campaign “Gay for a day!” on Facebook and Twitter, where users post pictures of themselves kissing someone of the same gender. This first image is posted by the Facebook page’s administrator, Tanmay Sahay.

But there will naturally always be haters:

Simple a manifestation of living in rebellion against their Creator.........


Romans 1:25-27........

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

@CrossWinds How much ever U struggle India is NOT going to become a Christian Country.  80% of the population in India are Hindus.  And people of India truly believe in GOD, most of us, we  are NOT atheists.  


Hinduism believes that everybody has got their freedom in choosing the form and the method in which ONE prays GOD.  That's Y Indians always respect all the other religions.


The recent uproar of Hindutva what the world is witnessing is because of the fact that the GOVT of India over the last few decades forgot the welfare of Hindus and somehow started believing that being Secular towards other religions means ignoring the welfare of Hindus and only talking about Muslims.


Otherwise in day-to-day life Hindus have got no objection to go to a church or a mosque or any other places of worship, while still having faith in Hinduism.
