Tutu would go to Hell before ‘homophobic’ Heaven

In remarks during the United Nations’ launch of its gay-rights campaign in Cape Town, South Africa’s retired archbishop and peace icon, 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. “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.”

Tutu 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, Agence France-Presse reported. “For me, it is at the same level.”
