A gay couple was publicly flogged over 80 times outside of a mosque in Banda Aceh, Indonesia on Friday for having gay sex.
Indonesia is a Muslim majority country, and under Sharia law, it is illegal to be homosexual and have gay sex. While gay sex is not illegal throughout the rest of Indonesia, the gay community in Indonesia faces extreme discrimination due to the fact that the country is majority Muslim. Under Islamic law, homosexuality is punishable by death, as stated in the Quran.
Nearly 15 other people were publicly flogged by the Sharia police on Friday for “crimes” of drinking, selling alcohol, and public display of affection.
During the flogging, a crowd of nearly 1,000 people gathered around the gay men and chanted “hit them harder”.
Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world by population. Nearly 13% of the world’s almost two billion Muslims live in Indonesia.
This is Islam. The year is 2018. Liberals throughout the world want you to believe that Islam is the religion of peace. A person can easily find out if the Left is telling the truth about Islam by asking themselves one simple question.
Is publicly beating gay people simply because they are gay an act of “peace”?
No. It is not.
