Cows Aren’t Gay, So People Aren’t Gay, Says Uganda’s First Lady
The first lady of virulently anti-gay country Uganda says that homosexuality isn’t natural, arguing that because cows aren’t gay, people can’t be gay, either.
Instinct Magazine reports that Janet Museveni, who also serves as the minister for affairs in the region of Karamoja, has argued that the country’s Anti-Homosexuality Act was passed as a debt to god, saying, "We must listen to God and obey him. Thank you God for leading us."
"If cows did not practice homosexuality, how could we the human beings start arguing over homosexuality?" was Museveni’s specious reasoning.
Thanks to this sort of logic and its resultant hate legislation, the U.S. has suspended aid to Uganda, as reported in Reuters. The U.S. reviewed ties with the East African country after President Yoweri Museveni signed into law on February 24 the legislation formerly known as the "Kill All Gays" bill.
"As a result of this review process, a portion of the U.S. Centre for Disease Control’s (CDC) cooperative agreement with the Ministry of Health has been put on hold pending this review," a senior U.S. government official told Reuters on Thursday.
Sadly, Uganda’s health ministry will no longer be able to access money from a fund used to buy antiretroviral drugs and HIV testing kits, a move that may further endanger a community targeted by Uganda’s anti-gay legislation.
Gay Star News reported that Museveni said they would not repeal this law, noting that "people who pray cannot be defeated."
Ironically enough, as noted in Bilreco, Museveni’s remarks were not just bizarre, but they were wrong. Homosexuality has been documented in hundreds of species. Stupid cow.
