Archbishop Desmond Tutu has a preference.
The South African Nobel peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu says he will never worship a 'homophobic God' and would rather go to hell than find himself in a 'homophobic heaven'.No problem, we can work with that. Just don't ask for sympathy when you ultimately receive what you asked for. Make sure you bring a sun blocker of SPF 6,000,000,000 with you. It won't help but perhaps you won't be as crispy.
The retired archbishop said the fight against homophobia in South Africa was similar to the campaign waged against racial apartheid in South Africa.Scripture is absolutely clear on this, those who use men as they would use a woman are specifically condemned by the Creator. There is no ambiguity possible. There is no similarity: race is not a choice, consensual sodomy is.
Archbishop Tutu, 81, was speaking at the launch of the UN's first global campaign to promote gay rights.
That's not the only travesty the UN is promoting. The UN wants a global carbon policy (all the better to steal from wealthy nations), invites the world's most vicious regimes to sit on UN human rights commissions and stood idly by while 800,000 people were slaughtered in Rwanda. The promotion of murder and mayhem has been part of the UN agenda for decades.
Archbishop Tutu has wandered too too far off the reservation. He has chosen to please Man rather than his Savior. He needs to reconsider his position and ignore the liberal crap that permeates his church. So here you go, biblical references to consider:
Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.Abomination. That's sorta like Obamacare only the IRS does the heavy fudge packing.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.This is a twofer Tutu.
It is not better to give rather than receive.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.The rapid spread of AIDS was exacerbated by the preternatural sexual urges of homosexuals. It was not uncommon for them to have 1,000 trysts a year, all with different men. If a straight male needed to have sex with two or three different woman every night we'd say there was something wrong with him. Not so gays.
I Corinthians 6:9(NIV) - Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.God's seating chart trumps yours Tutu.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB) - "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."That's some pretty rude company you're keeping Archbishop. Indeed, Jesus sat and ate with sinners - He loved them and did not wish to see them suffer the consequences, but He did not defend their actions. His words to them were: "Go and sin no more." Your words seem to be, "Bruce, make sure you bring the KY and the KFC to the picnic."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB) - And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.There ya go Desmond, fixed it for ya. No matter how you prepare it or what sauces you use, "Strange Flesh" is not part of the Christian menu.
