Uganda president calls gays ‘disgusting’ in interview after signing anti-gay law

Monday, February 24, 2014

Just hours after signing a harsh anti-gay law that punishes gay sex with up to life in prison, Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni called gays “disgusting” in an interview with CNN.

Asked if he personally dislikes homosexuals, Museveni replied:

“Of course. They are disgusting. What sort of people are they? I never knew what they were doing. I’ve been told recently that what they do is terrible. Disgusting. But I was ready to ignore that if there was proof that that’s how he is born, abnormal. But now the proof is not there.”

Watch:

The White House said Monday the United States is reviewing its relationship with Uganda because of the African nation’s new anti-gay law.

  22. Like I say. Get your backyard clean then try to change other countries. Uganda has the right to do as they see fit. We do not have equal rights in the USA.

    Posted on Monday, February 24, 2014 at 8:52pm
  23. No one has the right to punish people for being who they are, government or not. We have our problems here in the US, but people are people no matter where they are and there's nothing wrong with having a little compassion for people regardless of their nationality.

    Replied on Monday, February 24, 2014 at 8:55pm
  24. Wow what convoluted logic. No government has the right to punish people with imprisonment or death for being who they are naturally.

    Replied on Monday, February 24, 2014 at 8:57pm
  25. While we might not have full equality, we are making leaps and bounds whereas they are only moving backwards. Another huge difference between Uganda and the US is that we have not and will not criminalize homosexuality. Your logic is flawed, sorry to say.

  64. Mardell Mullins u are right Uganda does have every right to do as they want. However, there is no need to offend others in the process. I live here in Nevada; where gay marriage is not granted by the state, so I’m getting married to the luv of my life in our home state of beautiful California. I understand the concept of freedom of choice. Ugandas preaident has the right to raise up an ignorant, close minded country. We as a gay COMMUNITY have the right to choose who we marry and make it happen wherever possible.

  71. He is disgusting and in my opinion what he is doing is evil and criminal. Harmful on many levels including harming children who are gay and yes born that way there’s plenty of evidence and all anyone has to do is ask someone who is gay. He is a bigot and his religion should be punishable by up to life in prison if it condones this treatment of someone simply because they are gay. Shameful . cut US aid now!

  82. Whoever is advising him should be fired. There actually is proof now that being gay is genetic so he doesn’t know Wtf he’s talking about. The debate over genetics vs. choice is idiotic anyway and can be ended by one little question. Who would choose a life in which you’re constantly bombarded with hate and negativity? Short answer of course is no one. Telling someone who is gay that they chose the life they have is like telling me I chose to be a white girl. Or telling that Ugandan piece of shit that he chose to be a black man. It’s ridiculously absurd.
