US criticizes Brunei’s death penalty plan for gay sex, adultery

The US on Tuesday criticized Brunei’s decision to implement Islamic laws that would allow death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality. State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said the law runs counter to the country’s international human rights obligations. Besides the US, the foreign ministries of Germany, France and Australia have protested the plan and called on Brunei to scrap the law.

Why do leftists support radical Islam? We would all be killed under its laws for various reasons.

Knowing that their royal household is into all kinds of debauchery. Criminalizing homosexuality was ironic. But it's Brunei, shouldn't we be "respecting" their country, rules, and kulchar?
