Whipped in Public for Dating: Sharia Law in Indonesia

What Hillary and the left don't seem to understand is that those who practice Sharia law will not ever support the liberal platform.  Yet, the left keeps pressing to allow more Muslims into the country without taking into serious account that Sharia is not compatible with our Constitution.

Indonesia has clamped down on their own Muslim population, implementing and punishing offenses under Sharia law.  Most recently, young couples have been publicly flogged for dating.  The brutality of the punishment is an accurate depiction of what Sharia law looks like, unfettered.

In total, three Acehnese couples were sentenced to receive public lashes for violating Sharia law in a brutal new crackdown in the region.

Under the law men and women, who are not spouses, are not allowed to get too close due to the ‘khalwat' offence – and punishment is by public caning.

Aceh is the only province in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that is allowed to implement Islamic Sharia law.

Gay sex, gambling and drinking alcohol are all punishable by caning in Aceh which began implementing Sharia law after being granted special autonomy in 2001, an effort by the central government in Jakarta to quell a long-running separatist insurgency.

A flurry of new Islamic laws have been introduced in Aceh in recent years, drawing howls of protest from rights groups.

Earlier this year, Banda Aceh banned women from entertainment venues after 11pm unless they are accompanied by a husband or male family member.

Aceh district has also banned unmarried men and women from riding together on motorbikes.

The small percentage of non-Muslims in Indonesia have deep concern for how this Sharia crackdown will affect their lives and worship.

Pay attention America, Sharia will destroy our way of life if we blindly ignore its existence.
