Is This What The Sultan Of Brunei Meant By “Stoning” Gays And Lesbians?

sultan-hassanal-bolkiahThe Sultan of Browneye Brunei has been in the news a fair bit as of late, due to comments apparently calling for the stoning of gay men and lesbians, and the resultant uproar to these comments – including from some big names in Hollywood such as the pro-Israel Jay Leno.

But were his comments miscontrued?

You see, ol’ Sultie is apparently quite the sex addict who owns, among other things, four life-size statues depicting his brother Prince Jefri having sex with a fiancee.

Yes, really (warning: clicking on that link might cause nightmares).

So when he says he will have gay men and lesbians “stoned”, I’m thinking he wants to depict them as statues.

Update: Ok, maybe not. It seems he does want to stone people to death, which means he must have rocks in his head.

    The sultan is an easy target. He apparently not endowed enough Western universities or bought enough Western politicians. Let’s see all this ire brought against the Saudis, the Iranians and the Gulf sheiks. Oh, these tyrants live by the Golden Rule: Those with the gold make the rules.

      The Sultan is enormously wealthy and is still nominally ‘protected’ by Britain (a Gurkha regiment is permanently based in Brunei), so I think his ‘gold’ does exert a lot of influence at the political level. Still, undoubtedly, hyprocisy from the celebs, but that’s their thing.
