19 Cross-dressers Flogged Under Sharia Law

No matter what one might think of gays and/or cross-dressers, approve or disapprove, nowhere in human compassion should something like this happen to someone simply being themselves

A SUDANESE court had 19 Muslim youths flogged in public overnight for dressing up like women.

The punishment was carried out immediately after the sentencing by the court in Omdurman, which lies across the Nile river from Khartoum.

Hundreds of people looked on as each young man received 30 lashes, an AFP correspondent reported.

They were convicted under laws that forbid “indecent clothing”. The youths must also pay fines ranging between 500 and 1000 Sudanese pounds ($US200 to $US400).

The Sudanese press said the men were homosexuals attending a same sex marriage. Northern Sudan is governed by Islamic law, which forbids homosexuality.

This is exactly what many of the Islamists want to bring to America (and the rest of the world), ones such as the Imam for the Ground Zero mosque project. One might think that those on the left, self proclaimed champions of minorities, women, and alternative lifestyles, would actually take a stand against a religion that would turn minorities, women, and those who have alternative lifestyles into, at best, second class citizens. Alas, no. Those on the left seem to prefer “embracing diversity” of a religion that would have gays lashed for being gay, women lashed for being seen with a man other than their husband, and stoned for being raped.

A British holidaymaker has been charged with indecency in Dubai after walking through the world’s largest shopping centre in a bikini.

The woman was buying clothes and gifts in the Dubai Mall, fully dressed but in a low-cut top, when she was accosted by an Arabic woman and criticised for wearing ‘revealing clothing’.
