Four young men were convicted of gay sex and whipped publicly as punishment Thursday in an Islamic court in northern Nigeria, a human rights activist said.
The four were among dozens caught in a wave of arrests after Nigeria strengthened its criminal penalties for homosexuality with the new Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act in January.
The men could face further violence in prison if human rights organizations do not come up with an additional fine of 20,000 naira ($120) each meted out Thursday by a judge in Bauchi city, Dorothy AkenOva, convenor of the Coalition for the Defense of Sexual Rights Network, told The Associated Press. The four were sentenced to 15 strokes plus a years imprisonment if they cannot pay their fines.

Sad, but it didn’t happen here, so I’m not concerned.
“whipped publicly as punishment”
I thought they do this at every fag parade..
It’s not punishment to them.
They should fix their headline.
Is this racists or homophobic? I’m confused.
Those silly religion of peace nics are at it again!
This would have happened prior to the passage of the recent ban on celebrating,and trying to convince others to engage in deadly and immoral behavior. The key work here is “Muslim” court.
Shhhh... only attack Christians.. not Mooooooslims. Also, they like this kind of crap. Look up Folsom Street
So why do the liberals love the screaming bearded savages so much?
I actually read the article when I saw the source was the Associated Press...
Gay persecution stories are unique in that this entire story amounts to hearsay. There are no quotes from victims or the court, and we’re relying on the word of this gay right’s advocate.
I’ve seen stories about “gay man burned in Uganda” (Google it) which turn out to have been a man burned in a slum of Nairobi Kenya for reasons that had nothing to do with being gay, yet the MSM ran with it.
I’m infuriated by anyone being tortured or killed out of hate, but I would personally really like to see these stories (whether they’re gay, Christian, or whatever) more thoroughly vetted with an emphasis on documented sources and less hearsay. The media really seems to require an irresponsible level of verification before reporting this stuff.
But you and I are the Second Coming of Hitler cause we don’t want to give them marriage licenses or let them into the Boy Scouts.
Is this a scam like all those Nigerian princes pull online? Maybe old Dorothy wants to buy a villa in the south of France...and who could blame her.
The headline is misleading as the perps were not simply accused but convicted by a jury of their peers under due process of the law.
Probably just another “Matthew Shepard” lie.
Two days ago it was the tranny who claimed he/she/it was beat up in the bathroom (recanted, though the media continues to promote the story as if true). Today it’s this.
Well, since it’s not punishment, let’s send them to Iran. Since they don’t have any, we have a lot to share.
Didn’t a bunch of faggots into S&M whip themselves in front a church in San Fransicko a few years back at some street fairy fair?
Stonewall Jackson had them shot. Sodomy is not conducive to good order and military discipline. Never has been, never will be.
After hearing of the punishment, 20 more turned themselves in.
They’ve been beating homos for hundreds of years in that part of the world. No biggee, its a cultural thing.
Nope. Here, we are on the way to ultimately whipping the white male.
