Gambian President Tells UN of Homosexual Threat

GambiaThe President of Gambia, Yahya Jammeh has addressed the United Nations and declared that homosexuality is a threat greater than all natural disasters combined.

In his speech President Jammeh outlined the three greatest dangers to humanity, homosexuality scored third place on his list.


The biggest threats to human existence are basically three and are a consequence of human behaviour which are ungodly attributes. These are

Excessive greed, and; therefore addiction to gather material wealth by any means necessary mostly through violent or immoral schemes;

Obsession with world domination by any means including the resolve to use nuclear, biological and chemical weapons to achieve this fanciful dream;

Homosexuality in all its forms and manifestations which though very evil, antihuman as well as anti-Allah; is being promoted as a human right by some powers.

President Jammeh went on to argue that homosexuality is worse than all natural disasters put together and that because homosexual people do not reproduce, anyone supporting homosexuality is promoting the extinction of the human race.

The speech has drawn wide ranging criticism. Andrew Banks, Executive Director of All Out called the speech ‘disturbing’.

“In his list of the world’s greatest threats, the President left one out – intolerance,” Banks said in a statement.

The Gambian President has a long history of making statements against homosexuality, early in 2012 he said all homosexuals should leave the Gambia threatening to ‘cut of the heads’ of any he found remaining. Homosexuality is illegal in the country and punishable by 14 years in jail.

Previously President Jammah declared he had found a cure for HIV/AIDS that involved a mix of local herbs.
