Malawi President Wants Everyone to Just Shut Up About Those “Satanic” Gays

Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika, who pardoned Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza after they were sentenced to fourteen years at hard labor for gross indecency and unnatural acts,” has made it clear that he and everyone else should stop talking about those “satanic” gays:

“The story ends there… I don’t want to hear anyone commenting on them. Nobody is authorised to comment on the gays. You will spoil things,” Mutharika told reporters on arrival from the France-Africa summit.

He said the gay couple’s wedding was “satanic because they committed a crime against our culture, against our religion and against our laws.”

“I am looking at donors now… what will they say about the pardon?” Mutharika said.

…”Is it possible to stop aid to Malawi because of two people who are insane?” he asked.

Mutharika freed the couple following a meeting with UN General Secretary Ban Ki-moon on Saturday. Malawi had endured months of intense international criticism of couple’s prosecution. Foreign donors make up over half of Malawi’s development budget.

But that just telling you what I hear. After all, I’m authorized to comment on the gays…

Yes, it is absolutely possible, and BTW correct, to cut off aid over two people who are insane … if one of them is Bingu wa Mutharika.
