Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's response to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling striking down state bans on gay marriage included a sarcastic proposal for President Barack Obama.

The 91-year-old dictator is a vocal opponent of gay rights.

“I've just concluded since President Obama endorses the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance thus if it becomes necessary, I shall travel to Washington DC, get down on my knee, and ask his hand,” Mugabe is quoted by Newsweek as saying during his weekly radio interview.

He went on to condemn the court's decision.

“I can't understand how this people dare to defy Christ's explicit orders as our Lord prohibited mankind from sodomy.”

“Washington,” he added, was being controlled by “perverted Satan-worshippers who insult the great American nation.”

Last year, Mugabe threatened to “chop off” the heads of gay men who cannot reproduce.
