So now there’s this from the compassionate and enlightened practitioners of Islam: In Brunei, under new Sharia-inspired legislation, gays and cheating spouses may be stoned to death.
Fucking savages. Excerpt:
The move to make gay sex an offence punishable by stoning to death has sparked international condemnation and outcry.
The majority Muslim nation already implements Sharia laws, with homosexuality punishable with up to ten years in prison.
But from today, the government is planning to change the penal code to mean LGBT+ people could be stoned to death for same-sex activity.
Under the new laws, thieves could also have their right hand amputated for a first offence and the left foot for a second.
The punishments – which also apply to children – are in new sections under Brunei’s Sharia Penal Code.
Brunei was the first East Asian country to introduce Islamic criminal law in 2014 when it announced the first of three stages of legal changes.
This included fines or jail for offences like pregnancy outside marriage or failing to pray on Friday.
Now, the United States has a blemish or two in its history – as does every nation, everywhere, every time. But folks who like to bemoan America’s evils should go experience life in a place like Brunei, or Iran, or Venezuela, or North Korea. There is real evil in the world, real, determined evil, and places like these are where one can go to see it first-hand.
America is, by and large, a force for good in the world. Brunei, admittedly, is a flyspeck on the world stage – but it’s a flyspeck that has written into law the tenets of a major world religion, the only one of the major Abrahamic faiths that has not undergone their long-overdue reformation.
There are voices in Europe, in Scandinavia, in the UK, in Germany – who advocate for implementation of Sharia law in their insular communities. Well, True Believers, this is what Sharia law looks like – and they won’t be content to keep it to themselves.
