The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer has nothing but praise for India's controversial anti-gay sex law.

Fischer, whose anti-gay proclamations have become a near-weekly staple of his "Focal Point" radio show, called the Supreme Court of India's decision to reinstate the law "entirely right" and "entirely appropriate," Right Wing Watch first reported.

"Same-sex behavior is unnatural, it is against the order of nature," he said. "You just look at the plumbing and you can tell that, what body parts are designed for what use, and you can see right away that this is contrary to nature."

He went on to note, "It 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."

Indian lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights advocates has since vowed to continue pressing for the removal of the law, which dates back to the 1860s and makes sexual intercourse between two people of the same sex punishable by up to 10 years in prison, according to the Associated Press.
