By host - stephen.lloyd
Brunei is enacting strict new Islamic laws that make gay sex and adultery punishable by stoning to death, despite fierce global condemnation.

The tiny, Muslim-majority kingdom in 2014 became the first East Asian country to introduce Sharia law at a national level. The government introduced the legislation and associated penalties in stages, with the new measures set to begin Wednesday, April 3.
Under stages two and three of the penal code, sex between two men and adultery both carry a punishment of stoning to death, while sex between two women is punishable with 100 lashes.
The law also introduces harsh penalties such as amputation of limbs for stealing, and imprisonment for dressing as someone of a different gender.https://edition.cnn.com/2019/04/03/asia/brunei-stoning-law-intl/index.html?utm_content=2019-04-03T08%3A01%3A02&utm_medium=social&utm_source=fbCNN&utm_term=link&fbclid=IwAR39FDyjW7q6JyPX5EalqnsH4KnLJIcweS_D8SvuRbdOrQ9tUT1oGHMWpwA

"Human Rights Watch described the new penal code as"barbaric to the core" and urged the sultan to"immediately suspend amputations, stoning, and all other rights-abusing provisions and punishments."

Lack of good morals is the cause of all kinds of vices and societal ills.

Being gay does not denote a lack of morals.

For those saying “their country their laws”.. this is a clear human rights violation as stated under the U.N.
No country should be above human rights.

Human rights also allow every person on this planet to practice their own religious ideologies. If not then this would also be a human rights violation

Yes but this does not mean supporting death and torture. Practicing and believing in religion is one thing but infringing upon the rights of someone, especially in such a deadly manner, is something completely different.
Religious right and tolerance does not extend to harming or killing someone.
