Desmond Tutu challenges ‘homophobia’ in heaven
A veteran Christian activist and international blogger who faced persecution in Brazil over his support for biblical marriage and condemnation of homosexuality as sin says there’s a specific afterlife that can accommodate the pro-LGBT beliefs of former Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Tutu is the social-rights activist in South Africa who reached stardom in the 1980s battle over apartheid. He received the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize, the 1986 Albert Schweitzer Price for Humanitarianism and in 1999 for the Sydney Peace Prize, among others.
In a recent address to officials leading a United Nations strategy to promote “gay rights” in Africa, he declared, “I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven.”
