Jammeh: Lesbianism no good for The Gambia

Gays Without Borders, which is becoming one of our favorite blogs, depicts about the latest nonsense played around the world, this time by president Yahya Jammeh of The Gambia, that same guy who earlier in February this year sought the Medicine Nobel Award by stating that AIDS could be easily healed with only herbal tea plus a couple of bananas (story in the Daily Mail). Along with Eid al Fitr celebrations, Jammeh called for Islamic solidarity (The Gambia may not belong to the Arab League, but it's a majority muslim country) and also proved himself as hallucinated as Mr. Sheikh Ramathan Shaban Mubajje from Uganda.

President Jammeh stated that "What Allah says in the Qur'an is very clear, which is man can marry woman, but not woman to a woman or man to man. Lesbianism will not be accepted in The Gambia, so their idea of democracy is unacceptable, unislamic and ungodly", and that type of democracy will never enter The Gambia as long as he lives. Yahya went on to compare past Catholic and West behaviors to present terrorism, and pointed out that "hanging and electrifying someone to death, is not a way of killing a person, according to the Sharia law."

Hum, one wonders what merciful sort of death penalty Jammeh is saving for homosexuals in The Gambia.
