Legislature, executive must enable practice of liberty, equality, fraternity: CJI

IndiaTimes Saturday, 26 November 2022
The legislature and the executive "must enable" the practice of democratic ideals of liberty, equality and fraternity besides the courts sustaining these values by "foregrounding" them in their judicial decisions, Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud on Saturday. In his speech at the end of the day-long Constitution Day function in the Supreme Court premises here, the CJI said, "The Constitution does not force its citizens to choose between their rights and their culture. Rather, it includes the cultural, social and religious aspects in its journey to the goal of a democratic society."

While speaking to the Associated Press, Francis said that while the Catholic Church views homosexuality as a "sin," being gay is not a "crime.".

Associated Press reports that around 67 countries or jurisdictions around the world criminalize consensual same-sex relationships. . In America, over a dozen states continue to have anti-sodomy laws despite the Supreme Court declaring them unconstitutional in 2003. We are all children of God, and God loves us as we are and for the strength that each of us fights for our dignity, Pope Francis, via Associated Press. LGBTQ advocates applauded the pope's comments. His historic statement should send a message to world leaders and millions of Catholics around the world: LGBTQ people deserve to live in a world without violence and condemnation, and more kindness and understanding, Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, via Associated Press. The 86-year-old pope went on to address his health, saying, "I'm in good health for my age. I'm normal.". Francis has been forced to use a wheelchair recently due to issues with his knee
