Celebrities are calling for boycotts of luxury hotels owned by Brunei's Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah after he enacted the final phase of Sharia law that punishes homosexuals with death by stoning.

The new law, which is globally denounced by human rights groups, only affects Muslims who live in the tiny Islamic nation in Southeast Asia.

The Brunei government defended the new law and called for stronger adherence to Islamic teachings of Sharia law in the country.

The new law calls for death by stoning for males who engage in homosexual activity and 100 lashes for lesbians. Severe punishment will also be doled out for adultery and stealing.

Brunei said the new laws were enacted to "educate" and protect Islam.

Sharia laws have been rolled out in the oil-rich country since 2014. The final - and most controversial - phase became law on April 3.

Under the new laws, anyone caught stealing will lose at least one limb. The law will be applied to children once they reach adolescence - ages 9 to 12 - and teenagers.

Stars such as actor George Clooney and TV personality Ellen DeGeneres, who is openly lesbian, called for boycotts of all hotels owned by the sultan worldwide. The multi-million dollar properties include the exclusive Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, DeGeneres tweeted an image listing all of the sultan's hotels around the world.

She tweeted:

"Tomorrow, the country of #Brunei will start stoning gay people to death. We need to do something now. Please boycott these hotels owned by the Sultan of Brunei. Raise your voices now. Spread the word. Rise up."

Twitter users expressed their outrage over the severe punishments. But Muslims defended the law, saying homosexuals and couples who commit adultery will only be punished if they are caught engaging in unlawful acts in front of witnesses.

"Stoning people to death for homosexuality or adultery is appalling and immoral," said former Vice President Biden in a Twitter post on Friday. "There is no excuse -- not culture, not tradition - for this kind of hate and inhumanity."

Former President Barack Obama, who calls Islam the religion of peace, has not commented on the new law.

    I hate all religions but I especially despise Islam. No problem with pedophiles because their “prophet” was one himself. In Pakistan, women are viewed as property and not sexual beings thus the men there fawk little homeless boys on the streets.

    not a one. i mean, i'm certainly not for stoning consenting adults for loving their own gender. plus, i call b.s. on the sultan, IF he's more bothered by homosexuals than he is by a grown azz man "marrying" a 12 y/o girl. if that aint worthy of flying boulders and poison arrows, then fugg you and your laws, sir!

  • Whirl

    I steer clear of all belief systems. Once we take feelings and emotions out of it most seem to be based on a power grab, greed and corruption. Recorded history speaks for itself. Most blood baths and atrocities in time immemorial can be attributed to religions. They are all evil in my book.

    Why do so many religions always find time to pick on homosexuals when its so many other so called sins ?? Im so over religion !!!

  • Dem Moore

    A homophobes wet dream come true.....

  • Cheese eggs

    Some tenets of sharia law.....for the curious. "Women are eligible for only half of the inheritance of men
    * Virgins may be married against their will by a father or grandfather
    * Arab women may not marry non-Arab men
    * Women may not leave the house without a husband’s permission
    * Muslim men may marry 4 women, including Christians and Jews; Muslim women may marry Muslims
    * Men may beat insubordinate wives
    Homosexuals and lesbians must be killed
    * Slavery is permitted and legitimate
    * Muslim men have unlimited sexual rights over slave women, even married slaves
    * Female sexual mutilation (cliterectomy) is obligatory
    * Adultery is punished with death by stoning
    * Women’s testimony in court is worth half that of men (and is permitted only in property cases)...........bottom line...I'm staying right here?

  • Whirl

    Ditto and not just religions ALL belief systems.

  • Whirl

    All religions and other belief systems seem plain evil. It’s not just theirs.

  • Coy little wink

    They are boycotting hotels that I can't afford so whatever

  • Seldomseen

    This will be a very easy boycott for me!

  • Cheese eggs

    That's because "belief systems" have been constructed by humans....not God. Humans never ever ever get it right.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I'm right there with you.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Same!

  • Whirl

    So many religions have their hand in the cookie jar and are the cause of so many becoming gay. Look at the 1000’s of cases of catholic preist. The leadership knew about yet kept transfered the preist to a different parish after the abuse was reported.

  • Look@m3

    Religions have played a huge role in causing many to go gay. Look at all the babies that contracted herpes in New York due to the Jewish ritual of the rabbi putting his mouth on the male babies private part.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    This country is "tripping". Control Freaks with Anti Social Personality Disorder disguised as religion.
    They are truly stuck in the Old Testament. Jesus came in Peace & Love.
    That was "the law" under the Old Testament for specific reasons.

    (Google it)
    Don't @ me with foolishness. Not in the mood.

    Me too. I guess I've been boycotting them all my life. I just didn't know it.?

  • Dem Moore

    I dont understand if a person isn't gay why would they worry about gay sex life. I dont condone homosexuality however I dont condone alot of sexualitys but regardless those are Gods children and i don't have the right to judge them.

    Exactly they mad because trump don’t want to let ten million Mexicans in America to take more black folks jobs

  • Simone

    In 2017, Ellen said she'd never have President Trump on her show (not that he asked anyway) because he's "dangerous" for the country and for her as a gay woman. I bet she doesn't think he's so dangerous anymore. The U.S. does not punish gay folks with death or even jail them as most Muslims countries do. In fact, the U.S. supreme court legalized same sex marriage and Trump said it's settled law and he has no interest in fighting that.

  • EMILY POST

    So she is going to try to intimidate a country that cuts hungry children’s limbs off for stealing bread to try to tell them not to stone homosexuals even though homosexuality is not allowed in their country???? Good luck with that 1....

    Jesus came in Peace & Love. The law was destroyed. That means you do not kill them for it. Not that it is not still a sin. You handle it differently. Compassion is action.

    I'm not saying it's right...but why the hell does "America" always have to insert their noses in stuff that doesn't concern them?

    Many muslim nations still own African slaves. Do whites BOYCOTT them for this?

    Thailand and Singapore has a HIGH rate of rich pedophiles coming to their country to sex as many children as possible...do folks boycott the things American companies outsource over there? I'm just saying...why all up in arms over stoning gays? They've been stoning women FOR YEARS for being raped. Not necessarily Brunei but other muslim countries...

  • TeeJay

    Exactly

  • Sushi

    I don't have a dog in this fight. .

  • U gon learn today

    The law also includes the crimes of rape and adultery, but I have a feeling that they are making sodomy a crime so that they can specifically target gays. So if a husband sodomizes his wife, he would get away with it. Also, they dont seem to address the crime of pedophilia at all so it definitely seems like they concocted these laws to target a specific group of people. Women and children will still be at the mercy of sexual and physical abuse.

    The majority of people in all countries do not advocate homosexuality it only counts for 2% of the population and despite trying to brainwash our children that 2% stays the same. homos are men let them fight for themselves lesbians just needed good fathers I could go on and on the alphabet people are only concerned about their confused agenda.

    obviously the muslims are just as clueless about their beliefs and holy books as most professing Christians bc they are all over the place with homosexuality and pedophilia. according to their islamic holy books, both are acceptable practices being it states pretty little ladyboys will be feeding the men in their heavenly kingdom. 70 virgins each and ladyboys! whoo chile!

  • WiseGui

    And his wife Amal is A man. An F to M trans.

  • Yui

    So the fact that children, teenagers, and other folks (wouldn’t be surprised many will be innocent) losing a limb doesn’t take precedence over a gay person getting stoned? It’s funny how Hollywood only focuses on their agenda and ignores the whole picture! As a collective these laws are beyond barbaric.

    But of course when “gay” is mentioned followed by injustice or violence everything else gets swept under the rug.
