A man who loots money from poor Ugandans is the most dangerous thug to the country.

Museveni told CNN’s Zain Verjee on Monday that, in his view, being homosexual is unnatural and not a human right.

“They’re disgusting. What sort of people are they?” he said.“I never knew what they were doing. I’ve been told recently that what they do is terrible. Disgusting. But I was ready to ignore that if there was proof that that’s how he is born, abnormal. But now the proof is not there.”

Museveni signed the bill into law at a public event Monday. The bill was introduced in 2009 and originally included a death penalty clause for some homosexual acts.

The nation’s Parliament passed the bill in December, replacing the death penalty provision with a proposal of life in prison for “aggravated homosexuality.” This includes acts in which one person is infected with HIV,“serial offenders” and sex with minors, according to Amnesty International.

Museveni also told CNN that the West should not force its beliefs onto Ugandans.

Attitudes against homosexuality are prevalent in Uganda. A 2013 report from Pew Research found that 96% of Ugandans believe society should not accept homosexuality.

I'll bet he took a lot of money from the corporate born again preacher men to say that, too.
