UK Citizen Threatened With Execution in Saudi Arabia for Being Gay

The lesson he learned is, you don't mess with the culture in Saudi Arabia.  Perhaps he also could have learned not to work in a country where your very existence is a crime.  According to an article in The Sun:

A British man feared for his life after being arrested in Saudi Arabia on charges of homosexuality, it has emerged. The male nurse, Stephen Comiskey,  said he was savagely beaten and tormented with the threat of being decapitated.

He had moved to the socially-strict state in order to work for the King Fahad National Guard Hospital in Riyadh.
