Unlike those at Anglican Mainstream and GAFCON, Archbishop Tutu praises the Presbyterian Church for accomodating the ordination of practising homosexuals. Unlike cruel bible-bashers, Archbishop Tutu watches out for those who are persecuted by extremists. In an interview on CNN in 2009, Archbishop Tutu said... he reads his Bible every day, but argues that some parts should simply be rejected. "You have to understand is that the Bible is really a library of books and it has different categories of material," ..."There are certain parts which you have to say no to. The Bible accepted slavery. St Paul said women should not speak in church at all and there are people who have used that to say women should not be ordained. There are many things that you shouldn't accept." He goes onto say... "A parent who brings up a child to be a racist damages that child, damages the community in which they live, damages our hopes for a better world. A parent who teaches a child that there is only one sexual orientation and that anything else is evil denies our humanity and their own too."
Hey Bert... do you think those Gafconites will get 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 of Freedom?
What... you mean for spreading discontent, misogyny and homophobia? Isn't it funny Ernie...I used to think the church was there to protect the victimised... that was until I witnessed the treatment of gays and women by these cruel conservatives.
