Retired South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu said he ‘would not worship a homophobic God’ and would rather go to hell, BBC News reports. He made the comments during a speech at the launch of a UN-backed campaign in South Africa to promote gay rights. He must have certainly ruffled some feathers in South Africa and the continent as a whole because of homophobic violence. Archbishop Tutu has been a tireless campaigner for gay rights.
Of course, the right wing can’t handle this and the usual chorus is taking offense to Desmond Tutu’s comments:
Tutu's definition of a "homophobic" God: one who disapproves of homosexual behavior. http://t.co/L0soH2WomL
