Desmond Tutu Prefers Hell Over a 'Homophobic' Heaven

By the world's standards, Desmond Tutu, the retired archbishop of South Africa, is an intelligent and influential man. A social rights activist who became known worldwide in the 1980s as a staunch opponent of apartheid, Tutu has been a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism, the Pacem in Terris Award, the Sydney Peace Prize, the Gandhi Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal for Freedom.1 Yet, in the eyes of the Lord God, Desmond Tutu is a fool (Rom 1:22).

Speaking in Cape Town at a press conference announcing the launch of "Free and Equal," a United Nations campaign for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality, Tutu made the following statement:

I cannot worship a homophobic God. . . . I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven … I mean I would much rather go to the other place. . . . I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this.2

Tutu presumes that God, and the Christians who serve Him, are 'homophobic.'
