"Those who promote homosexuality want to put an end to human existence. It is becoming an epidemic and we Muslims and Africans will fight to end this behaviour."
Gambian president Yahya Jammeh declares melodramatic war on gays in his address to the United Nations General Assembly. What a charmer. The response of his audience isn't recorded, but was presumably a multi-lingual "FUCK OFF".
This comes hot on the heels of the news that a Saudi cleric has rejected calls to permit women to drive on the grounds that it's damaging for their ovaries. Truly we live in enlighted times...
