How is it possible for this country to have a lgbt Church and at the same time have a repressive and fundamentalist form of islam looming over the population

I think UAE was doing something similar. Seeing the country is mainly built on religious views, surprised it took this long

Where did you hear they have an LGBT church? I know India values transgender to some extent but it's still sadly illegal to be gay.

:biblio: According to the affirming Church directory the Church in Pakistan is called The Shahzad Najmuddin Gay and Lesbian Church but im assuming it isn't anywhere on google for the safety of the actual gay Christians and so it might be underground

transgenders can adopt children, take jobs, etc.

 

Between 2009-2013, Delhi legalized homosexuality, until the Supreme Court overturned it in Dec 2013...

Why are you pressed? This article was extremely lacking in detail. I assumed that Christians would be exempt from this but I wanted to know if this was confirmed

Interesting theory! If it's underground, it must show how repressive the country is -_-

Yes, there is so much to learn from India when the country makes it hard for Muslims to eat and live different than Hindus and that the third genders are sort of kept separate from main society...

At one point India may have been progressive but that time has passed.

Is this that big of a deal though. Pakistan is predominantly muslim, and much of the country's tradisions are based on islamic cultural heritage. I live in Norway, a very liberal and forward-thinking country that has separated the state and the Church, so that it's no longer Christian, but in school we all have a subject called "Christianity, Religion, Life Stance and Ethics". This is due to the heavy influence Christianity has had on Norwegian history and culture.
