Penalties in Saudi Arabia tend to be severe but arbitrary, depending on the judge’s mood. In a case in 2000, involving nine young men accused of “dressing in women’s clothes and engaging in deviant sexual behaviour”, five of them were sentenced to six years in prison with 2,600 lashes (50 sessions of 52 lashes at fortnightly intervals), and the others to five years with 2,400 lashes (50 sessions of 48 lashes).
It makes you wonder just how many LGBT people are imprisoned and being tortured in Saudi Arabia.
This is precisely the reason why religion DOES NOT BELONG IN GOVERNMENT!!!
