Another disturbing punishment for homosexual acts is found in Mauritania, an African country. Muslim men are specifically called out and mentioned in their penal code, which explains that those caught taking part in an “act against nature” with someone of the same sex can be punishable by the death penalty. Even more terrifying- they list the death penalty specifically to be one by public stoning. I guess this way anyone in the area who may be considering acting on their feelings can see the brutal punishment you receive. Sadly, this is just one of multiple African countries where the death penalty is involved.
