Newsline: Zimbabwe pledges to expel diplomats discussing homosexuality

Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe said that “any diplomat who talks about homosexuality will be kicked out. There is no excuse and we won’t listen to them.” The Zimbabwean leader mocked the 5-4 court decision and condemned marriage equality during his weekly radio interview with the country’s national radio station, ZBC IB Times reported quoting media reports. Mugabe jokingly said he would travel to the White House and propose to US President Barack Obama, who lauded a historic Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage legal in all 50 American states last week. Mugabe, who was elected Zimbabwe’s president in 1987, said the United States was run by perverted Satan-worshippers. The Zimbabwean dictator, who strongly opposes homosexuality, has made countless controversial remarks against the LGBT community in the past. Mugabe, who is also the African Union chairperson, has said that gay people are lower than “pigs, goats and birds” and they should go to “hell,” according to Newsweek. Homosexuality is barred in Zimbabwe and Mugabe has criticized Obama for encouraging gay rights on the African continent.
