This is what Nimal Siripala de Silva (Minister of Health) had to say at the ICAAP (held in Sri Lanka from August 19-23, 2007):
“I don’t want people to think I brought all of these people here (for the congress) to promote lesbianism and homosexuality. There are many nice women and handsome men in Sri Lanka,” he pointed out. “People in South-east Asia practice good sexual behaviour with single partners.”
And then, much to the horror of all those present, he went on in the same insulting manner: “When the western world was living in jungles, we were leading a civilised life.”
What a way to start a conference.......
