Miss Botswana: Homosexuality An “Unnatural Act”

Newly-crowned Miss Botswana, Sumaiyah Marope, has caused an uproar after declaring same-sex relationships to be an “unnatural act.”

In a scenario that mirrors the recent controversy at the Miss USA competition, Marope was asked by judge DJ Fresh if she would advocate gay marriage.

“It is unnatural act,” Marope proclaimed. “God made us men and women [... ] It is only proper for men to have relationships with women as God created us.”

The crowd erupted in a loud roar of approval of her comments.

Unlike Miss California, Marope went on to win the competition, and was awarded a US $700 bracelet from rapper Russell Simmons, a brand new Mercedes Benz, and an academic scholarship.

Miss Botswana’s comments come at an unusual time in Botswana, as several gay rights groups are pushing for the removal of legislation that does not recognize same-sex relationships.
