Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has supposedly cracked what may be termed the “biggest joke of the year,” by directly aiming a jibe at U.S. President, Barack Obama because of the latter’s stance on same-sex marriage, which was recently upheld nationwide by the US Supreme Court – a ruling which looked to please the 53-year old American president.
Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage, the first from a sitting president, came amid growing pressure for him to clarify his previously-muddled opinion as two of his senior staff announced their personal support for gay marriage – and just a day after voters in North Carolina approved an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
But Mugabe, the 91-year old evergreen leader was obviously irked by Obama’s support of legalization of gay marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court therefore courted the US President by asking for his hand in marriage. He said in a radio interview with Zimbabwe’s state-run ZBC radio that;
“I’ve just concluded, since President Obama endorses same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance, [that] if it becomes necessary, I shall travel to Washington D.C. to get down on my knee and ask for his hand.”
“I cannot understand how this people [Americans] dare to defy Christ’s explicit orders as our Lord when he prohibited mankind from sodomy. The American government is run by perverted Satan-worshipers who insult the great American nation,” added the recalcitrant Zimbabwean dictator.
Furthermore, he insisted that the American tradition and heritage is based on lofty Christian principles, but that to the detriment of this great nation, America’s corrupt political elite is acting according to its diabolical whims.
It should be recalled that President Mugabe has previously maintained an angry stance towards the US President’s endorsement of homosexuals. He was quoted at some point to have said that homosexuals are “worse than pigs and dogs.”
In his exact words, “We have this American president, Obama, born of an African father, who is saying we will not give you aid if you don’t embrace homosexuality, and we ask, was he born out of homosexuality? We need continuity in our race, and that comes from the woman, and no to homosexuality. John and John, no; Maria and Maria, no. They are worse than dogs and pigs. I keep pigs and the male pig knows the female one.”
If Mugabe is serious in considering homosexuals worse than pigs, may God help any Zimbabwean that would dare to become a homosexual. What do you think?
