South Africa's Nobel peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu says he will never worship a "homophobic God" and will rather go to hell.
The retired archbishop was speaking at the launch of a UN-backed campaign in South Africa to promote gay rights.
Despite sex-same relationships being legal in South Africa, it had some of the worst cases of homophobic violence, UN human rights chief Navi Pillay said.
Archbishop Tutu, 81, is a long-standing campaigner for gay rights.
'Toilet brush attack'
He retired as Archbishop of Cape Town in 1996, but has remained the moral conscience of the nation, correspondents say.
Same-sex relationships are illegal in more than a third of countries around the world and punishable by death in five, Ms Pillay said.
In Africa, homosexual acts are still a crime in 38 countries, according to the rights group Amnesty International.
"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," Archbishop Tutu said at the launch of the Free and Equal campaign in Cape Town.
"I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this."(continued)

Go to Hell.
I doubt that the Creator of the Universe is anything-phobic. Its bad enough to apply the homophobic tag to people who are not afraid of homosexuality, but to apply it to God is just stupid. Even for a Leftist who pretends to be a Man of God.
What other of G-d’s rules do you not wish to follow, Mr. Tutu?
He should have a talk with his good buddy Mugabe.
” .... rather go to hell.”
It’s really of his choosing.
Perhaps he should: Zimbabwe: Mugabe Threatens to Behead Homosexuals
Tutu must wear a Tutu.....what an IDIOT.
Satan said words of similar effect.
Hey Tutu or Fufu, whatever you call yourself. I have no doubt that Hell & the Lake of Fire is your destination throughout eternity. Be not deceived, God is not mocked! You will roast in Hell forever, for your rebellion & lack of salvation. The words that you speak so arrogantly is this life will haunt you & echo back to you throughout eternity in Hell.
He probably should pack light weight summer clothing for his final trip.
Who thinks God is afraid of gays? He loves them and died for them as he did all sinners.
Does Desmond Tutu think that God has sin-ophobia? God isn't afraid of anything. He's not afraid of sin but hates sin like he does cancer. Is God cancer-phobic?
"Homophobic" is another confused oxymoron like "gay rights." It confuses fear with hate and confuses the sin with the sinner. Satan wants the world (and as many Christians as possible) to think that God is angry with and hates the gays because of their perverse life style. But Satan is a liar.
The cross of Jesus Christ was the only way sin could be separated from the sinner. Because of the incredible sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross ALL of EVERYONE'S sins past, present, and future were completely and fully judged by God the Father on his beloved Son Jesus Christ because of his great love for us. On the cross, God was able to separate out and fully judge destructive and deadly sin which he hates while preserving the sinner in the person Jesus Christ.
God isn't afraid of sodomy, he hates sodomy. God doesn't hate or fear the sodomite, he loves him and gave his only Son for him.
South Africa is much like another country in the Southern Hemisphere, Argentina, which sank from a relatively prosperous standing into a morass of social despair and endless unrest. And for much the same reason - endless agitation for “social justice” and a redress of all real and imagined wrongs by the “rich”.
Argentina and South Africa have traveled somewhat different paths, in that South Africa has not had anybody of quite the resolve of Eva Peron to personally drain the national treasury, but the same feelings of “us against them” were exploited to the fullest. South Africa has managed to stay above insolvency just because of the extraction of gold and other minerals, keeping them in a relative positive balance of trade. Argentina lost its dominance of trade in processed beef quite early on, when the First World War ended, and foreign exchange dried up.
“Progressive” policies in both countries led to their present loss of national focus. And both countries give us a preview of what lies in wait for the territory once known as “the United States of America”.
Hell is exactly where necktie Tutu is going.
So the glory of heaven...or someone’s butt crack....and the butt crack wins every time. How special!
This clown is an “archbishop” and sounds like he’s never read the Bible. Just wondering if he bought his vestments in a surplus store, but just in case, he should read Romans 1:2627, 1 Corinthians 6:910, and 1 Timothy 1:910. Won’t bother mentioning Leviticus because some Christians think it’s no longer binding (protip: some parts arent’t but some parts still are).
The poorest and most violent African countries are also the most liberal. Coincidence? I think not!
This makes me very, very sad.
God will surely give Tutu his wish.
He needn’t have any concerns about his eventual destination, he’s figured it out as accurately as any human being is capable (Hell).
The proper headline should be:
“Former Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu Rejects God, Asks To Be Cast Into Hell”
Former Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu Rejects God, Asks To Be Cast Into Hell
Accurate but sad.
A man who says, "I would rather go to Hell," will get his 'druthers.'
Only a man who neither loves God nor fears Satan would make such an idiotic statement.
This Jew-hating douchebag is going to hell anyway.
What a reckless statement. If Tutu had any idea how utterly horrible Hell will be, he might want to reconsider his stance. I think it will be infinitely worse than anyone can endure, but endure it they must. He needs to repent, because My opinion is, he never has.
he is going to Hell already....
he doesn’t need to “prefer it” now....
He must think hell is tolerable. Not having been there personally I have read enough to know it is not. Not only is it intolerable, it is unimaginable pain, suffering and sorrow. No thanks. Another lost and deceived soul who really isn’t a believer after all. Making war on God never ends well I’m afraid
God may give him a pass for being a “low-information” theologian, but I doubt it.
A man like Tutu can’t easily repent; his heart was turned over to a reprobate mind years ago.
He reminds me of what Ted Turner said some time ago:
“I’d like to see a religion where everybody was good. Not just the members of that sect. I mean I’m sick of it. Heaven is going to be a mighty slender place. And most of the people I know in life aren’t going to be there. There are a few notable exceptions and I’ll miss them. (Laughter) Remember, heaven is going to be perfect. And I don’t really want to be there...Those of us that go to hell, which will be most of us in this room, most journalists are certainly going there. (Laughter). Anyway, because they are not that religious because they know too much. But, when we get there we’ll have a chance to make things better because hell is supposed to be a mess. And heaven is perfect. Who wants to go to a place that’s perfect? Boring, boring.” (Laughter)
Yes friend. They don’t get it I guess and it’s truly frightening. Why are they putting themselves out as holy men and then proclaim such a thing? They will be held acountable for all the souls they deceive into believing they know better than The Lord about his creation and how He ordered it. It’s enough to make you cry more so for his gullible followers, right off the cliff
He may have already passed the point of no return, but only God knows for sure.
phobia=irrational fear of _________
Couple of question for you Tu:
Do you believe God is omnipotent?
How can an Omnipotent God have an irrational fear of ________ (fill in the blank of your choice)?
Put another way, can He have a fear and remain omnipotent?
“....but has remained the moral conscience of the nation....”
It’s not saying much of that poor nation.
Suspect Mr Tutu will get a chance to test his theorem.
This reminds me of a bizarre thing I saw back before Obama had even become the Democrat nominee.
As was typical in primary season, there was a little speculation about the candidates, that one of them might be the antichrist. Happens every election. But among Obama’s passionate supporters, one of them said something so outrageous that I have never forgotten it.
“I hope that Obama *is* the antichrist, because he would be powerful, and give us the stuff we want, and punish our enemies.”
Obama to one side, here is a person, almost certainly not a Christian, and most likely an atheist, who is so disconnected from reality that they would embrace “the ultimate evil”, out of the hope of getting free stuff and getting revenge on those he hates.
In this case, it doesn’t really matter what “the ultimate evil” is. It doesn’t even need to be the antichrist, as long as it is powerful enough to support their greed and hate.
In any event, I started collecting some of the pseudo-religious or even religious references to Obama made by all sorts of people, even literate and lettered ones, that came across as them worshiping someone they hoped was their greed and hate messiah.
And setting aside both the antichrist and Obama, this is incredibly disturbing. People so focused on greed and hate that they would follow Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, anyone, who promises them “stuff” and to hurt their enemies.
Still just a small number of people, I suspect that their numbers are growing, such as the “rejecting God three times” bit at the Democrat convention.
Now look at someone like Desmond Tutu or Rowan Williams, the former Archbishop of Canterbury as well as a druid high priest. Even high clergy are infected with this insanity.
Even without involvement of demonic forces or the antichrist, this is very, very bad.
That’s a really creepy story.
Wow, how self-important and arrogant does one have to be to decide what is and isn’t appropriate for God to pronounce???.....
