Christian conservative Bryan Fischer on Wednesday cheered India's Supreme Court for reinstating that country's ban on gay sex.

India's highest court unanimously upheld Section 377 of India's penal code, a holdover from British colonial rule that outlaws consensual sex “against the order of nature,” which is widely understood to mean homosexual acts. The court said that only lawmakers could change Section 377.

While the law is rarely invoked, gay rights activists say it encourages discrimination against the LGBT community.

Wednesday's ruling shocked activists and their supporters, because the high court had refused to put on hold a landmark 2009 lower court judgment declaring intercourse between two consenting members of the same sex legal while an appeal moved forward.

On his AFA-sponsored Focal Point radio show, Fischer hailed the ruling as “entirely appropriate” and as proof that gay rights gains could be reversed.

“This is entirely right and entirely appropriate,” Fischer told listeners. “Same-sex behavior is unnatural, it is against the order of nature: You just look at the plumbing and you can tell; what body parts are designed for what use and you can see right away that this is contrary to nature.”

This decision “shows that this cultural trend that we're dealing with can be reversed, because for four years it was open season for homosexuals in India and now that drift away from cultural norms and moral norms, that's been reversed in the country of India. … Good law in India upheld by the Supreme Court.” (The video is embedded on this page.
