World famous church leader, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, has publicly stated he will never worship ‘a homophobic God’, and would rather go to hell than be in a ‘homophobic Heaven’.
The Archbishop was speaking at the launch of the first ever United Nations (UN) global campaign, called ‘Free and Equal’, to promote gay rights in South Africa.
In his support for the campaign, Archbishop Tutu said, “I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level.”
“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. I would not worship a God who is homophobic, and that is how deeply I feel about this.”
Archbishop Tutu played a major role in bringing down South Africa’s racist apartheid regime, and has also campaigned for gay rights.
