Indonesia may criminalize homosexuality. The punishment would be exorcism.

Indonesia is on track to criminalize homosexuality and the punishment would be absurd. If found guilty, the accused would be required to undergo “rehabilitation” to have their homosexuality removed.

How? Most likely an ex-gay Muslim exorcism.

While other countries move to ban “ex-gay therapy” as a form of psychological torture without benefit, Indonesia has slid backward. Germany was the latest nation to ban the dangerous practice that frequently spawns suicide attempts and lasting psychological damage.

Four political parties are backing the bill and it has been made a priority for the current Parliament.

1. Damn, I have wonderful memories of Bali

Obviously not going back if this passes.

Is there a petition to protest it anywhere?

3. Bali is principally Buddhist, iirc.

Java is principally Muslim. Admittedly, they’re both in Indonesia, but Bali has always maintained its unique culture.

2. We have Christians in America who do this. Often to children.
