Uganda Prez Blocks Anti-Gay Law

Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni, likely due to fear of international outcry, is refusing to sign a bill that seeks to toughen laws against homosexuals. The bill included life imprisonment for homosexual acts. In a litany of oddities, Museveni chastised the Parliament saying "Even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing [sic] homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons," he said, and that if the economy improves, they could be "rescued." He also argued against deeming homosexuality as an "alternative sexual orientation," saying it was an "abnormality" and that "it could be that the Western societies, on account of random breeding, have generated many abnormal people." And for the icing on the cake, he argued that another reason women became lesbians is because of "sexual starvation" when they fail to marry.
