uganda-anti-homosexuality-bill-cheering.jpgA shocking, ugly new video has emerged out of Uganda of President Yoweri Museveni announcing at a party retreat that he intends to sign the country's barbaric Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

Museveni says:

"The debate is: are there... those born homosexuals or not? That's not for you to answer. You should ask why you are putting yourself in trouble... If the authorities here give me their signed statements, my... job is finished. I will sign the bill. Then we shall have a war with the homosexual lobby in the world, backed by these people and you."

When President Museveni says "I will sign the bill," the crowd of Ugandan lawmakers goes wild.

Watch, after the jump.

The "signed statements" he's referring to are statements from Ugandan "scientists" who falsely claim that homosexuality can be cured. Museveni has used their junk science to justify his signing the bill. Box Turtle Bulletin has obtained a copy of their report; click here to read.
