Ugandan President: ‘Gay sex gives you worms and all gay people are prostitutes’

  • Valksy

    And religion makes you a scientifically illiterate ignorant babbling halfwit, but then we knew that (plus, unlike the mental incontinence dribbling out of his idiot mouth, it tends to be true. Religion, poverty, pathetic standards of education and extremism do all go hand in hand).

    • Rumbelow

      “And religion makes you a scientifically illiterate ignorant babbling halfwit,”

      You’ve totally hit the nail on the head with that comment, especially with regard to the Ugandan religious nitwits. Are there no persons with an adult mentation in Uganda’s government now that the infiltration of religious place-men has seemingly become a total coup?

      Christian dominionism creating a hell on earth.

  • Ray

    This would be funny if it were not so serious for lgbt persons in Uganda and much of the rest of Africa.
    However, the only ‘worm’ I see is Musevani himself for caving in to outright bigotry- his own and others….
    . Meanwhile, look at how Uganda ‘prostitutes’ inself to big business (Western & Chionese) and largely ignores the on-going social & economic damage to its own people and environment.

    • SC

      It is so sad that people have to live through that hate in the 21th century. Living in America 20 years ago was hell. I can’t even imagine what it must feel like to be gay and living in Uganda.

  • Mark Y

    The guy is clearly insane.

    • Truth

      Maybe it’s something in the water supply at the Presidential Palaces? It clearly affected Idi Amin too ….

        And of course that complete fruitloop that runs the Gambia.

        • Mark Y

          And the idiots that run Nigeria. And……

      • Friesjones

        It’s the hot-and-cold running coke-and-hookers that most corrupt politicians shower in that causes this sort of babbling.

  • Truth

    Oh dear. Ignorant, hypocritical, homophobic bigots make me vomit … but I’d never introduce a law to imprison and vilify them. But then, I think of myself as possessing a modicum of intelligence and human compassion. Amazing how the persecuted become the persecutor …. but doubly so when it involves a race which has been so persecuted over the centuries. You’d think they’d have a greater sense of justice – and of their own history.

    • Charles

      My dear, homosexuality is worse than all that you have said. why impose it on us. Why can’t you respect us to enjoy our rights also.

      • Rehan

        ‘Not criminalising’ is ‘imposing’, is it? Explain (if you can). What a wonderfully topsy-turvy world you must live in.

      • saintlaw

        STFU you abject closet-case.

    • Fact

      Obviously Uganda does have a greater sense of justice than you.

      • Ray

        Justice? You do NOT know the meaning of… Slavery was/us unjust , racism is unjust, mysogeny is unjust and homophobia is also unjust. As is the poverty and inequality in Uganda; and anywhere; that is being ignored in favour of prejudice to divert attention from the need to tackle it and those who benefit from it…

  • Dtnorth

    And religion gives you the sh!ts, and not from your backside.

  • http://twrl.github.com/ Tom Robbins

    “I have failed to understand…” At least that sentence is correct. It seems that there is a distinct lack of science in Uganda.

    I look forward to the day when there is international consensus that this is persecution on a par with ethnic cleansings, and people like this face trial for their crimes against humanity.

    • Dtnorth

      It’s not just the poor gay sods in Uganda that suffer with this type of nonsense.

      It lessens all of us. It is yet more de-humanising of all of us.

      • http://twrl.github.com/ Tom Robbins

        It seems to me counterproductive. Uganda must realise that they are legitimising racism in the west by doing this. They’re not going to overturn the view that sub-Saharan countries are “primitive”, “backward”, or “barbaric” by acting like they are. Everybody loses.

        • Save Baby Girls

          Wrong, everybody wins by exterminating homosexuals. Especially the 12,000 baby girls who are raped by homosexuals in the belief that heinous act will cure their filthy AIDS. .

          • http://twrl.github.com/ Tom Robbins

            If anybody is exterminated nobody wins. Humanity thrives on diversity. It’s one of our species redeeming features.

            Homosexual men would be unlikely to rape girls, kinda by definition. HIV is not caused by homosexuality; in subsaharan Africa it’s really a heterosexual problem, linked to religious disapproval of barrier contraception.

          • Jessie

            You are an idiot. You and people like you should be exterminated for the good of all decent people.

          • Marty

            Decent people? pah! I propose that you are not a decent person that you are uneducated about the true issues here. Your lack of knowledge on the subject shows that sterilisation may be the only option for you to prevent you poisoning your childrens minds with your backwards and quite frankly concerning tripe that you have posted on this wall. Hitler was considered a monster but what you are suggesting is the same as his solution. In my opinion you are the monster. Go away educate yourself and come back and have a reasonable discussion when you have an idea of what you’re talking about.

    The ‘Social imperialism’ defence, so often shamefully used by leaders who have no popular basis for their cause. If you’re confident your people are happy with their homophobic views, then they won’t disappoint you when they engage with arguments from the Liberal foreigners.

          • Lennard

            As much as I hate what’s happening in Uganda, I think ‘kane’ has a valid point when he says homophobia is yet another ‘western’ export product (not per se American). Most anti-homosexual laws were actually drafted by the British before Uganda became independent (it should also be noted that Buganda’s first leader (turn of the 19th century) was openly gay. If ever there is a solution to Uganda’s situation, I think it should start with finding the roots of the problem. Those roots are probably European/American: http://www.satnat.net/uganda-homosexuality-bill/ (made me rethink the whole issue)

          • kane

            dont be ignorant, the fact is that there are, mostly american, right wing christian nutters in uganda involved in spreading pentecostal christianity. fastest growing trend that turns, no longer garage operated, churches into serious money making machines, crude and moronic in its simplicity and therefore very appealing to uneducated poor masses

          • Daniel

            Kane, whilst there is some generational evidence that homophobia didn’t exist until the arrival of the various religious factions, it’s wrong to say that it was American influenced. History shows us that in fact it was primarily European (Dutch, English, German, French, Italian) and some arabic influence that brought the disease that is organised religion to the African continent.

          • kane

            from wikipedia:

            ‘…American evangelicals such as Scott Lively and California pastor Rick Warren have a history of involvement in Uganda where they focus their missionary work. As a result, Warren and others have become influential in the shaping of public policy in Uganda, Nigeria and, to a lesser extent, Kenya.[16] Stephen Langa, the March 2009 workshop organiser, specifically cited an unlicensedconversion therapist named Richard A. Cohen, who states in Coming out Straight, that was given to Langa and other prominent Ugandans,

            Homosexuals are at least 12 times more likely to molest children than heterosexuals; homosexual teachers are at least 7 times more likely to molest a pupil; homosexual teachers are estimated to have committed at least 25 percent of pupil molestation; 40 percent of molestation assaults were made by those who engage in homosexuality.

            These statements were based on faulty studies performed by Paul Cameron, who has been expelled from the American Psychological Association, the Canadian Psychological Association, and the American Sociological Association, and Cohen confirmed their weaknesses, stating that when the book will be reprinted, these statistics will be removed…’

          • Daniel

            As useful as wikipedia is, it is hardly the paragon of fact. Be that as it may, the American influence that you speak of above is present day, not the origin. They merely perpetuate the myths introduced by the Europeans. So to correct your original statement… “Uganda, another country ****ed up by Europe, and continues to be ****ed up by the western world”.

          • kane

            ‘…Be that as it may, the American influence that you speak of above is present day, not the origin…’

            well, we talk about recent legislation that was passed as a result of recent activity of american christian nutters.

            ‘…As useful as wikipedia is, it is hardly the paragon of fact…’

            of course wikipedia is not the only source of information on the internet when it comes to proving the point. but laziness on your part to research the issue further to make valid point instead of dismissive one is rather telling.

            perhaps british broadsheet paper The Guardian, among others, is more convincing as a source of reliable information:

            ‘…Christian evangelical groups in the US are attempting a “cultural colonisation” of Africa, opening offices in numerous countries to promote attacks on homosexuality and abortion, according to an investigation by a liberal thinktank.

            American religious organisations are expanding their operations across the continent, lobbying for conservative policies and laws and fanning homophobia, argues the Boston-based Political Research Associates(PRA).

            The groups include the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), founded by the televangelist Pat Robertson, which has established bases in Kenya and Zimbabwe…’

            http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/jul/24/evangelical-christians-homophobia-africa

          • Daniel

            So not only is your source the woefully unreliable Wikipedia, but now a media outlet. I’m surprised. Again you quote relatively recent examples as the root of homophobia in Uganda. Again this is factually erroneous.
            Until independence in the mid 60’s Uganda was part of the British Empire, and like many other African nations indoctrinated in Western religious mythology, in their case Anglicanism. Like many other religions, it vilified those who were different or who did not obey the strictures of those religious texts. Amongst the homophobia, you’ll also find witchcraft accusations and many other atrocities committed in the name of religion. The cultural change of Uganda and other nations has been well entrenched for some 150+ years.
            All the American (and other) religious organisations of the modern day have done is perpetuate that behaviour in recent times.

            Just to point out a little error of assumption; the laws against homosexuality in Uganda aren’t anything new. The original laws were introduced during the British Colonial rule in the mid 19th century. They were then enshrined in statute in 1950 and extended to all genders (previously only male) in 2000. The 2009 bill (2014 act) merely takes it a step further.
            Crimes against the LGBT community (despite constitutional protection under Article 21) are nothing new in Uganda. The recent legislation has had the benefit of a social media world to become known.

            I would suggest you know your history before making assumptions about research.

          • kane

            ‘…All the American (and other) religious organisations of the modern day have done is perpetuate that behaviour in recent times…’

            im well aware of ugandan colonial past and its laws, so you can dispense with the condescending tone. your claim that american christian nutters merely perpetuated homophobia is utterly ridiculous. in last 20 years they managed, despite udandans facing more severe problems like poverty, lack of education and woeful health service, to make homosexuality no 1 enemy, which in turn resulted in country passing the law. stop digging

            ‘…So not only is your source the woefully unreliable Wikipedia, but now a media outlet…

            im not even going to comment on that

          • Daniel

            Empirical evidence, dear boy, and a good understanding of the facts may give you an education; despite yourself.
            Please do provide sources for your claims that American intervention is the cause of “making homosexuality no 1 enemy” [sic]. Grandiose statements do not facts make. It also belies a complete lack of understanding of LGBT issues in Uganda and the wider African continent. Regardless of your suppositions, American religious intervention has changed very little in the psyche towards homosexuality in Uganda. The progression of laws (as outlined in my previous post) show a decades (and indeed centuries) old determination of Ugandan policy makers to criminalise homosexuality, particularly at a time when other countries were awakening from their bonds of inequality.

            Despite your protestations to the contrary, you did comment all the same.

          • kane

            ‘…American religious intervention has changed very little in the psyche towards homosexuality in Uganda…’

            is this an opinion or a fact? if it is the latter, then im sure, dear boy, you could substantiate your good understanding of that fact with any evidence.after all with all that self proclaimed superior education it should be a piece cake.
            futher more, yet to see any evidence of your, even, basic understanding of lgbt issues in uganda and the wider african continent that you brag about.

          • Daniel

            So, still unable to provide documented proof then are we? Still unable to comprehend that legal/policy/statutory evidence proves the point?
            I’ll offer you a little clue. If Ugandans didn’t like homosexuality before American intervention (as shown in their legal approach to the matter), and still didn’t like it after such intervention, then a reasonable deduction is that their involvement had little impact.

          • kane

            ‘…So, still unable to provide documented proof then are we?…’

            nop, you got me. it looks like major international media outlets created this little conspiracy theory about american christian nutters influencing uganda’s ‘the kill the gays bill’, just to fool naive people like me. they probably even financed the movie ‘god loves uganda’ and the book ‘The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power’
            in order to inject some credibility into that conspiracy

            oh, allow me offer you a little clue in return

            ‘if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.’

          • Daniel

            *sigh* You really aren’t understanding the basic history of the subject are you. The LGBT community’s issues in Uganda are not the fault of American religious groups. LGBT hatred began well over 150 years earlier, with the arrival of European (and in Uganda’s case British) colonial rule and has perpetuated until the modern day. For more than a century Ugandan policy makers have consistently introduced ever increasingly anti-LGBT legislation to the statute books, legitimising homophobia, with the culmination of the 2014 Act.

            American religious presence has merely supported it; not instigated it.
            In other words – it would have happened irrespective of American religious influence; the groundwork was already there.
            Is that clear enough or are you dogmatically sticking to the erroneous belief that the century and a half of cultural history is completely irrelevant and it’s all the fault of those yankies?

          • Michael David Barber Moghul

            As a matter of fact, Mr. Scott Lively, a heinous American Christian Fundamentalist is being sued in Court for going to Uganda and helping them write this law. He is being sued for Crimes Against Humanity. Look up the facts and stop lying to people.

      Perhaps you have hit upon the most effective way to bring this law down – accuse everyone of being gay until the police have neither time nor patience to pursue the claims; starting with the main proponents of the law in parliament, perhaps….

  • Halou

    The next time this person or any of his ministers enter a western country for whatever reason, they should be detained and refused exit. If Uganda complains then slap them back with accusations of “African Imperialism” and attempting to interfere in the affairs of a sovereign state. It should not be up to Uganda to say who a western nation is and isn’t allowed to arrest in their own territories.

    About as rational as his signing a bill backed by western lobbyists to spite international laws his country has already signed up to.

    And I’m not buying any more Innocent Smoothies, either – because they promote themselves as giving aid to Uganda.

    If Ugandan authorities would rather demonize and savage their own people, rather than use other people’s hard-earned money in the form of International aid or charity, then let them suffer the consequences.

    My desire to help the poor sick and deprived in Uganda – and Nigeria, for that matter – is finished. If they die, they die.

    • kane

          sure, some in the west feel free to blame gay marriage on recent floods in uk

          • Dazzer

            kane, there is only so much money I can give to charity. In future I will will give it to the poor, sick and deprived of countries where gay people aren’t scapegoated at the convenience of corrupt politicians.

            From now on, I’m going to be specific about where my money goes.

            To be brutally frank about this, if I’m going to help save a kid’s life or see him/her educated, I’m going to do it in a country where that kid won’t be raised to hate me and believe that people like me should be imprisoned, tortured or executed simply for existing.

            I am well past the blame game.

            This is a simple equation. There are only so many people one can help in this overcrowded world and in future I will try to help the ones in countries where gay and lesbian and transgender children have a chance to grow into not excessively oppressed adults.

            I don’t wish harm on the people of Uganda or Nigeria, but I will no longer help them if they are in harm’s way. Instead, I will use what little money I have to help equally vulnerable human beings in countries where gay children aren’t saved from cholera only to be viciously victimised when they become adults.

            It’s a cold equation to make, but it is what it is.

    I’m tired of being stuck on this planet with these idiots. It’s hard enough trying to love the ones you were born to, but this???
    I’m reminded of a great line or two from the play/movie “Nuts”.
    “What if he’s an asshole with the power to lock me up? What if that’s all he is: an asshole with power?”
    If the words get asterisked out, the word in question refers to the opening at the end of your digestive tract, and a person who resembles it. A shame, really, that such innocent and enjoyable orafice has earned such a negative connotation…

  • Rumbelow

    Ugandans have become mindless, unintelligent and irresponsible prostitutes to a distorted form of Christianity called Christian Dominionism, anti-gay Ugandans are so filthy and beneath contempt they simply make me want to vomit, they have lost their humanity, they have become ruthless, backward and cowardly anti-gay bullies, they are a major disappointment and a total embarrassment in the 21st century.

  • Christopher in Canada

    There’s a great quote from the play and movie “Nuts” that applies here. I’ve tried posting it in the original but the moderator won’t allow it.

  • GulliverUK

    1. He’s a dictator, been in power about 28 years. Replace Idi Amin, and many parallels have been drawn between his presidency and the former.
    2. He’s not an intellectual, but not stupid either. He knows nationalism – getting all Ugandan’s to be against the west – is useful to him. It may win him the next election.
    3. He’s passed the buck to so-called scientists. When he finally has to repeal the law he’s say that it was because of faulty science, and absolve himself of responsibility.
    4. It’s not a case of nurture causing people to chose to be gay, but a lack of nurture on his government to promote equality, tolerance of differences and diversity.
    5. “Gay sex gives you worms”. I’m now quite old (in gay years) but I have never heard this before. I though uncooked meat gave you worms – you live and learn ! :)
    6. See the political parallels – Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, all run by despotic authoritarian dictators who are about to lose power – a new Africa will begin to emerge in the next 5-10 years. Once the tide turns, it will turn quickly.
    7. He should have thought about the consequences for Ugandans abroad. Who is going to employ someone in a western office knowing that “polling data” suggests they are all homophobic? If I was recruiting that might be a problem I would consider.
    my 2p worth.

      He didn’t replace Idi Amin. There was 3 presidents in between them. However your 2nd point is absolutely spot on. He’s a political genius, believe me.

      • josepholeary

        reminds me of another political genius who had a thing about Jews

        • Lennard

          I agree that, politically, he’s as smart as sarah palin is stupid. He understands very well millions of people will follow you quite blindly if you give them a common enemy.

    The clown has worms in his brain.

    I’ve never ever been a prostitute! I’ve never wanted to be. These disgusting, vile, demonic, sociopathic, zombie sheeple, are truly shameless! I see Lively and some of the other right wing frauds behind this..

    Time for the SAS to go in & get rid of this ridiculous man & his cronies. What century are we in?

  • Auntie Babs

    I so wish I was racist at the moment.

  • WesternIowan

    The Ugandan government is guilty of genocide, and Ugandan government officials should be punished as such.

    a dotty dictator on a collision course with reality

    This statement from the 12th richest man in Africa at 1.7 billion. In 1986 he was a mere officer in the army. How did he create such wealth – a billion is a million million.

      (Actually a billion is a thousand million, as far as discussions about money are concerned anyway.)

    Forbes Magazine asked world wide readers onFacebook to name the worst dictators alive today and President Museveni was ranked in amongst them. Now that he has passed the Anti-Homosexual Bill, the world will be more informed about him.

    Museveni is placed alongside some notable dictators: Remember that he is also placed along side Uganda’s former dictator **Idi Amin.

    Bashar al-Assad of Syria **North Korea’s Kim Jong-ill, ** Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe **Vladamir Putin **General Than Shwe (Burma)**Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Kha** Sudan’s Omar al-Bashir **

    ddungu Musa Evans -Just Another WordPress.com site writes the following information;

    President Museveni should reveal how he acquired this wealth, yet by 1986 he was landless, without shelter, poor like a church mouse, the only wealth he had was an AK 47 Kalashnikov that he had used to butcher Ugandans during the 1981-1986 bush war.

    But now surprisingly President Yoweri Museveni’s being ranked the 12th richest person in Africa, his wealth is estimated at $1.7bn

    “After anti-gay law is signed, Uganda tabloid publishes list of the country’s ‘top’ homosexuals”

    It scares me, just how angry I feel about this. Tom Robbins said in his comment here that “they are legitimising racism in the west by doing this” and I fear that these feelings will bubble up in many of us. In my nursing career, I worked with many people from Africa. Some of them were the most wonderful, caring, gorgeous people you could meet, but the larger majority were prejudiced and bigoted due to their religious beliefs. This will not improve when those in power commit crimes against people in the name of the law and their faith. For me, the scariest part of this is that it’s now law to report gay people, which will create a society of fear, anxiety and vigilanteism. And he thinks we are warped……….!

  • Nattugla

    I feel sorry for the gays in Uganda. The president is definetly stupid if he thinks the west won’t interfere. My country (Norway) have aleardy withdrawned about 5 million £ in aid.

  • Dee-Moe

    Why do we still listen to this person anyway? He’s clearly lost it and is not worth any of my time. Not even internet-procrastination-time…!

  • Colin

    I have been boiling all day.

    Apart from a dumb stupid man what else is there to say.

    I hope and will get fighting and writing to those who can effect change and plead with you all to do the same get active and not despondent or hurt.

    We can change the world….one by one as others have for us….and we live with that success.

    Now is a testing time… Do we have the faith in humanity that those who faught for legislation of gay rights and recently equality of human rights and equal non religious marriage. these are wonderful people.

    Make them proud. We must keep going and fighting. All is there to win. Keep positive and active. Hugs all gay community and out supporters and those straight communities that support us. We want an inclusive society. best for all.

  • Diediddlediedie.

    Put Obama on the top of the list. Invite all homosexuals to Uganda and execute them all. Homosexuals believe they have the ‘basic human right’ to groom young boys for sex and sodomize them. Then when they get AIDS they believe the cure is to rape baby girls. 12,000 baby girls are destroyed in Sth Africa each year by homosexual rape. Homosexuality is a choice of ‘perverts’ and its not a natural act. Homosexuals spread disease and rape for their own ‘sexual perversion’

    • Br00zR

      You are literally too stupid to insult.

  • http://twrl.github.com/ Tom Robbins

    As far as I’m aware, worms are amongst the few things for which no form of sex is a risk factor.

  • Ken

    Does he have worms in his brain someone give him a bullet

  • Jeffrey

    Museveni: “The mouth is for picking food”….So shut up and go to dinner !!

  • Huge Move

    I know something is wrong with the stupid president. I mean look how black he is. How can a man be so black in colour? Something must be wrong with him.

  • sisquo

    To be fair I think Museveni claims oral sex not just gay sex gives you worms lol

  • Daniel

    The awful historical irony of this deplorable move will no doubt ring through the years. For a country that spend many decades shaking off the shackles of both the slave trade and colonialism, to now introduce oppressive laws which create a “sub-class” of human by virtue of innate characteristic is horrifying beyond belief.
    I would hope that there are more than words from the international community on this.
    For decades South Africa was persona non-grata and sanctioned for its apartheid regime based on the innate characteristic of skin colour. This approach of Uganda is no different, and countries around the world should simply condemn Uganda and refuse to conduct any form of trade with it.
