In the wake of the Supreme Court of India reinstating that nation’t ban on homosexuality, a Hindu guru is promising that he can cure people of being gay with yoga. His arguments will sound very familiar to those of us who criticize the same stupid claims made by the Christian right.
Hours after the Supreme Court upheld that the consensual sex between adults of the same-gender was an offence, yoga guru Baba Ramdev offered to “cure homosexuals” at his Patanjali ashram in Haridwar.
“I invite them to my ashram. Two people belonging to opposite sex will be kept in one room for a few days and they will be cured of homosexuality,” Ramdev told reporters today.
Welcoming the SC ruling, Ramdev said, “The practice of homosexuality is unscientific, unnatural, uncivilised, immoral, irreligious and abnormal.”
“Homosexuality is not genetic. If our parents were homosexuals, then we would not have been born. So it’s unnatural,” he said.
Same ridiculous claims, different country.
