  • Having been to India three times now working to feed orphans, lepers, and others destitute, digging water wells in villages who have no well, and many other efforts, it is a shame that more bondage has come to my brothers and sisters in God who live in India. With the caste system still I place, this further alienates the freedom one deserves. 10 years or life sentencing for being gay, and yet, we let murders and other vile deeds go without punishment or less years in prison. So upsetting. As a gay man, I would not feel safe visiting India and my loved ones again, out of fear that I would be punished under India Law as a visitor.
