Desmond Tutu Gets It Right

Wow. Desmond Tutu's new book, 'God Is Not A Christian: And Other Provocations', contains some "explosive" stuff to all the Bible thumping die hards out there.

Read this excerpt that is posted on Huffington Post today to see why he thinks persecuting gays and lesbians is the ultimate injustice.

Here's a glimpse:

"A student once asked me, If I could have one wish granted to reverse an injustice, what would it be? I had to ask for two. One is for world leaders to forgive the debts of developing nations which hold them in such thrall. The other is for the world to end the persecution of people because of their sexual orientation, which is every bit as unjust as that crime against humanity, apartheid."

Way to go, Des! Comparing homosexuality persecution with apartheid is an awesome analogy and one that will certainly raise the hackles of all the religidiots out there. Good job!
