"The mouth is made for eating and kissing, and gay oral sex will give you worms."
President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda today gave a detailed explanation of why he believed homosexuals should be jailed for life.
"These mercenary homosexual prostitutes have to be punished," he said. "Just like those who are recruiting them."
"I have failed to understand that you can fail to be attracted to all these beautiful women and be attracted to a man," the president told reporters as he signed off on controversial anti-gay legislation that includes life prison terms for repeat offenders.
"That is a really serious matter. There is something really wrong with you," he said. Museveni, a devout evangelical Christian, said the only explanation for being gay was money.
"Homosexuals are actually mercenaries. They are heterosexual people but because of money they say they are homosexuals. These are prostitutes because of money," he said, asserting that he had taken the time to get scientific advice before signing off on the law.
Got it. Science.
