Mitzvah #170 - Be happy, but not gay

If two males have marital relationships they both deserve to be stoned to death by Beth Din.

If there are no witnesses they are punished with Karet.

If done unintentionally, they each need to bring a Chatat offering when the Bet haMikdash will be rebuilt.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Do not have marital relationships with another male" (Vayikra 18:22)
