Janet Museveni, the wife of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, has claimed that gay people don't exist because she's never met a gay cow.

Uganda recently enacted a harsh anti-gay law which calls for life imprisonment for the crime of “aggravated homosexuality,” outlaws the promotion of gay rights and requires individuals to turn in anyone they suspect of being gay.

In praising the bishops of the Church of Uganda for helping get the law approved, Museveni said that the law's passage was an act of God that “progressed” Uganda.

“If cows did not practice homosexuality, how could we the human being start arguing over homosexuality?” she is quoted as saying by the International Business Times.
