Kerala bishops warn against cohabitation

May 24, 2010

The bishops of the southwestern Indian state of Kerala-- the nation’s Catholic stronghold since its evangelization by St. Thomas the Apostle-- is developing a campaign against cohabitation following a Supreme Court decision affirming its legality.

“Living together may be legally right,” said Father Jose Kottayil of the Kerala Catholic Bishops Council. “On the other side, such a culture will morally affect society. It will jeopardize the future of children born in such relationships.”

“It is an issue that affect not only the Christian community alone, but our cultural heritage and entire society.”
