From CNN

 

A Sharia court in Indonesia's conservative Aceh province sentenced two gay men to a public caning Wednesday.

 

The men, ages 20 and 23, were arrested in March by vigilantes within their community in Banda Aceh, the capital of Aceh province.
 
They were subsequently found guilty of violating Aceh's strict Islamic laws and were sentenced to 85 lashes, according to Evendi, the head of Sharia law enforcement in Banda Aceh.
 
Khairil Jamal, the lead judge, said that "the court has proven that the defendants without doubt are legally guilty of committing sodomy."
 
Neighbors barged into an apartment with the men and filmed them naked with camera phones, according to rights groups. The videos were shared widely in local media.
 
Gay sex is legal everywhere else in Muslim-majority Indonesia, a nation generally known to be moderate and tolerant.

It is regrettable that the law can still interfere in private activity between consenting adults.   Of course, I suppose a public flogging is better than being hanged in Iran.

 

Meanwhile, followers of certain faiths increasingly try to interfere with our freedoms in our countries.  

We have only just about squeezed the Catholic church to it's rightful place on the absolute fringes of society, where it may be ignored by non-believers.  Now we have another religion slowly increasing interference & people rarely speak out against it.

And after they are "cained", will they be "abeled" in any way?

The "24-year-old exchange student" would, no doubt, have felt right at home with the brown shirts on Kristallnacht.

 

His oft inappropriate use of the smiley face suggests other issues.

While the owners of this forum allow the charade to continue this forum will deteriorate even further.

Thanks for helping us get a better handle on just what those other issues might be.

 

As usual, your own words--and symbols--speak for themselves.

Photo and excerpts from BBC

 

Two men have been caned in the Indonesian province of Aceh after being caught having sex.

 

The men stood on stage in white gowns praying while a team of hooded men lashed their backs with a cane.

 

The men were sentenced to 85 strokes but the number was reduced by two because they had spent two months in detention.
