Robert Mugabe: One of the world’s most despotic leaders and an

inveterate homophobe, has spoken against President Obama’s

open support for same-sex marriage.

 

 

Obama's Gay Stance Called ‘Worst Form of Satanism’ (The Zimbabwe Mail, Zimbabwe)

 

“Obama’s stance supporting the legalization of same-sex marriage should send a loud message to the world. This is why America’s claim of upholding human rights should never be trusted. And this is also why Obama should be condemned as unfit to rule … If Americans vote for him, they will have been turned into nothing better than animals.”

 

-- Chief Fortune Charumbira, President of the Chief’s Council of Zimbabwe and a Mugabe loyalist

Zimbabwe's Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, the beleaguered leader of the Zimbabwe opposition, has yet to react to President Obama's support for gay marriage.

HARARE: U.S. President Barack Obama has come under heavy criticism from President Mugabe's Zanu-PF Party, over his open support of legalizing same sex-marriage.

 

Widespread public condemnation demonstrates that President Obama’s stance on gay rights is the worst possible sin against humanity. The decision is an indication of how low America, which preaches democracy, has sunk, so that today, it fails to respect moral values and even God’s word in the Bible - which discourages homosexuality.

 

Chief Fortune Charumbira, President of the Chief’s Council of Zimbabwe and a Mugabe loyalist, blasted Obama for demonstrating loose morals, saying his stance should be condemned at any price.

 

“Obama’s stance supporting the legalization of same-sex marriage should send a loud message to the world. This is why America’s claim of upholding human rights should never be trusted. And this is also why Obama should be condemned as unfit to rule,” Chief Chirumbira said, adding, “if Americans vote for him, they will have been turned into nothing better than animals.’’

 

Mwenezi West lawmaker Kudakwashe Basikiti also had no kind words for Obama, labeling him a messenger of the devil.

 

“The sentiments expressed by Obama are the worst form of Satanism. Zimbabweans should be wary of such positions. This is shocking, because even the Bible discourages homosexuality,” he said.

 

Basikiti added, “Obama’s stance supporting gay rights speaks volumes about how his British counterpart, David Cameron, sought to export gay rights to Zimbabwe through their puppet, Movement for Democratic Change leader [Zimbabwe Prime Minister] Morgan Tsvangirai, and their foiled attempt to use their agent, the U.N. Development Program, to smuggle homosexuality into the draft constitution.”

 

The public also lashed out at President Obama, demonstrating that his open support for gay rights should be condemned.

 

Obama's announcement sparked outrage at places of worship across the United States, and will likely cost him the U.S. election in November.

 

Last year, President Robert Mugabe told British Prime Minister Cameron, “to hell with you” over his calls to respect gay rights.

 

“Nature is nature. It has created male and female,” Mugabe told thousands of supporters at his 88th birthday celebration in the eastern border town of Mutare.

“You, David Cameron, are you suggesting that you don’t know that, or is this some kind of insanity or part of European culture?

“In their newspapers, this is regarded as one of my sins. That I called (gays) worse than pigs and dogs, because pigs know that there are males and females. It is even in the Bible that you create through the system of marriage.

 

“That’s how we were born, so we reject this notion outright and say to hell with you. I won’t even call him a dog because my own dog would complain and say, ‘what have I done?’”

 

At the Commonwealth Summit last year, Cameron said that countries receiving British aid should respect human rights, including gay rights.

 

The issue has re-emerged as Zimbabwe drafts a new constitution, with debate on whether to follow neighboring South Africa’s model and include gay rights in the charter. Mugabe urged young people to reject any provision for gay rights in the new charter.

 

“We won’t accept it,” he said. “There are other countries that have accepted putting this in their constitutions.  … Please, young men and women, men don’t have the freedom to marry men, and women to marry women. Men have the freedom to marry women. That is God’s freedom. That’s what created you and me.”

 

Mugabe has ranted against homosexuality for decades.

 

During a recent visit to neighboring Zambia, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon repeated his call for African countries to respect gay rights.
