Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has moved the target on the horrifying Anti-Homosexuality Bill yet again.
Despite last week’s claim that he would not sign the bill because it was hurriedly passed, President Museveni is now asking for “conclusive scientific proof” that homosexuality is not genetic before he signs the bill, according to The Observer.
President Museveeni indicated in a statement earlier this month that while he believes homosexuality is a “disgusting behavior” and an “alternative lifestyle,” he also believes that many are gay because of “financial inducements.”
Should President Museveni veto this bill, the Ugandan Parliament can override the presidential action by a two-thirds vote.
