Be Careful What You Ask For
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, having fought against apartheid, declares that he knows better how to run the universe than God, who must be sorely tempted to give the pious old fraud what he’s asking for. According to the Washington Times via Agence France-Presse:
South Africa’s iconic retired archbishop, Desmond Tutu, said on Friday that if he had his pick, he’d go to hell before heading to a heaven that condemned homosexuality as sin.
“I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this,” he said, by way of denouncing religions that discriminate against gays, in Agence France-Presse..
He added, AFP reported: “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place.”
Mr. Tutu also likened equal rights for gays to the fight for equal rights for blacks.
“I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid,” he said, AFP reported. “For me, it is at the same level.”
So Tutu (for whom everything that he feels strongly about is the equivalent of the fight against apartheid) is essentially saying, “If God disagrees with me about the sinfulness of homosexual behavior, I’m prepared to spend eternity without Him, because Satan would be the preferable alternative.”
All I can say is he’d better hope that the Almighty puts his ravings down to senile dementia. Because if he’s in his right mind, he might do well to stock up on asbestos underwear, if you get my drift.
