President Obama isn't a big fan of free trade, but there's one thing he's striving mightily to export — homosexual rights (and sometimes homosexuals). It's not a big seller in the developing world.
A day after the Supreme Court granted victories to same-sex couples in the U.S., President Obama's visit to Africa got off to a rough start when his call for tolerance of gays on the continent was rebuffed publicly by the president of Senegal, where homosexuality is a crime.
Senegalese state television reports that world music icon Youssou Ndour has been named the West African country's minister for culture and tourism.
Egypt's parliament has called for a vote on stopping U.S. aid.
DAKAR, SENEGAL | Senegal's president conceded Tuesday he could be forced into a runoff election after failing to secure the outright majority for a disputed third term.
Mr. Sall told him bluntly: "We are not ready to decriminalize homosexuality."
Mr. Sall said his majority-Muslim country is "very tolerant," but he rejected Mr. Obama's argument that the same civil-rights laws should apply globally.
