A fact for Liberals: Half of the Countries Where Same-Sex Acts Are Prohibited Are Islamic; Death Penalty in 13

Islam is the chic religion of the Left. 
It’s the faith Barack Obama and Democrats goes out of his way to defend.  But, Libs have no problem disrespecting Christians at the drop of a hat.  Why? And why does Hillary Clinton have no problem collecting money from these countries?

CNS News reports half of the countries in the world where homosexual behavior is legally prohibited are Islamic states, and in 13 of those countries, the death penalty is codified in shari’a (Islamic law), in some cases implemented by governments or non-state actors.
According to data compiled by the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA), updated to June 2016, same-sex sexual acts are illegal in 73 countries around the world.

Thirty-seven of those countries are members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the bloc of 57 mostly Muslim-majority countries.

Prohibitions and punishments range in scope and severity, but in 13 countries – all Islamic – homosexual behavior can lead to a death sentence, ILGA reported:

-- In Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Yemen, the death penalty is codified under shari’a and implemented countrywide;

--In 12 northern states of Nigeria, and parts of southern Somalia, the death penalty is codified under shari’a and implemented across the relevant parts of the country;

--In Afghanistan, Mauritania, Pakistan, Qatar and the UAE, the death penalty is codified under shari’a although it is not known to be implemented; and

-- In parts of Syria and Iraq controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL), the death penalty is carried out by “vigilantes,” or on the orders of local shari’a courts.
