Re: More on treating homosexuality as a sickness: Homosexuality is punishable in India

Dear Editors,

Greek Penal Code still regards punishable homosexual anal intercourse, but not heterosexual anal intercourse!

This makes Greece, a European Country-part of the EU, with its anachronistic and antiquated Penal Code, one of the few Countries left on the Planet to punish homosexuality.
