Brunei says it will not enforce gay sex death penalty after backlash

Brunei has backtracked on laws introduced last month that would have made sex between men and adultery punishable by stoning to death. While saying that a moratorium on the death penalty would be applied to the SPCO he also defended the new rules, saying their ’merit’ would become clear. While still on the statue books for some crimes, no executions have been carried out in Brunei since 1957.

Like many of the laws here in the US that legislators say "we wont ENFORCE this silly law we just want it on the books to discourage people!" Sadly its not you who enforces the law and when officers in Brunei who hate gay people shoot them they are still legally protected, REGARDLESS of intent. Good job Brunei...

So, did this not affect lesbians? I assumed they meant gay people, not just gay men.

They may not have it on the books, in the traditional sense. I will need to see them prosecute homophobia/hate crimes/ people taking the law into Thier own hands, to believe them though

Ohh so Mohammed was wrong and world public opinion ( and their cash ) correct in their assertions that these ideas and practices immoral, barbaric and should be consigned to history. Well I suppose that’s a start.
