There May Not Be Gays In Iran...

...but there are at least two in Saudi Arabia. Then again, they don't hang gays in Saudi Arabia, they just beat them.

TWO men in Saudi Arabia have been sentenced to 7000 lashes each after being convicted of sodomy and have received their first round of punishment in public, a newspaper said today...

They were then returned to prison where they are to be held until the full punishment is completed, the newspaper added, without saying how many sessions this would involve.

Sore butt?

Depending on what they're using as a lash, how many lashes per "session," and what kind of medical care offered after, that's quite possibly just a really really drawn out death penalty.

Barbaric.
