As Britain and North America tries to ram homosexuality down the throats of
other countries, Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has said to British Prime
Minister David Cameron "to hell with you" over his calls to respect gay rights.
"You David Cameron, are you suggesting that you don't know that or is it some
kind of insanity or part of the culture of Europeans.
"In their newspapers, that's one of my sins. That I called (gays) worse than
pigs and dogs because pigs know there are males and females. It's even in the
Bible that you create through the system of marrying.
"That's how we were born, so we reject that outright and say to hell with
you. I won't even call him a dog because my own dog will complain and say, but
what have I done."
Mugabe's response comes during a time that that country is in the process of
drafting a new constitution. In a statement last year during a commonwealth
summit in Perth, Australia. Cameron threatened to dock some UK aid to "anti-gay"
nations, which some have perceived as blackmail on his part.
Mugabe's stance on the matter seems to be that if lesser beings such as
animal know by nature that male on male and female on female is incompatible
with life, why don't humans of higher intellect understand this simple
foundation of our existence.
Mr. Cameron told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show that "British aid should have
more strings attached".
Some 41 nations within the 54-member Commonwealth have laws banning
homosexuality. Many of these laws are a legacy of British Empire laws states the
Another country in Africa has also spoken out the Cameron issue as homosexual
acts are illegal in Uganda and most other African countries. Many people see it
as violating religious and cultural beliefs.
