Brunei not to stone homosexuals

I have no idea how we missed this, I see NO threads on it :messga:

Brunei will not enforce the death penalty for those convicted of having gay sex following a global backlash against the country led by international human rights groups and celebrities.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, who acts as the country's Prime Minister, extended a moratorium on the death penalty to legislation prohibiting gay sex, following calls from celebrities such as George Clooney for tourists to boycott his country's string of luxury hotels. The small South-East Asian nation sparked an outcry when it rolled out its interpretation of Islamic laws, or sharia, on April 3, punishing sodomy, adultery and rape with death, including by stoning.

Brunei has consistently defended its right to implement the laws, elements of which were first adopted in 2014 and which have been rolled out in phases since then. However, in a rare response to criticism aimed at the oil-rich state, the sultan said the death penalty would not be imposed in the implementation of the Syariah Penal Code Order (SPCO). 

"I am aware that there are many questions and misperceptions with regard to the implementation of the SPCO. However, we believe that once these have been cleared the merit of the law will be evident," the sultan said in a speech ahead of the start of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, oh you only taking it back now because you're worried about your trillions of dollars because people are boycotting your hotels?

A moratorium is only temporary though...

We need to be thankful for any time at all tbh

Hopefully it'll give a chance for some of the gays to get OUT of there

Excellent.

I wish the motivation was from a moral, ethical standing, not financial. Lives will be spared, regardless, though. That's what really matters.

I can’t believe it’s being put in the same category as rape and now he must think we’re defending that too. Stone rapists all you want but leave us the **** alone

It's amazing to see how they hide their homophobia under the guise of religion but as soon as their money is threatened, religion is out the door. These are the type of people who are the walking devils themselves.

Well, they won't stone the rapist. They will stone the women who were raped for "tempting the rapist."

 

That is how these things always go.

Great.  So now outrage from anyone outside the queer community will die down, and they can quietly reinstate the law, and people will die before it leaks that it’s happening again.

I'm talkin' 'bout forever, baby.

And? Doesn’t change that sharia law and Brunei itself are homophobic
