If This Man Preached in My Town . . .

I'd go to back to church.

This from BBC:

South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu has criticised the Anglican Church and its leadership for its attitudes towards homosexuality.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4, he said the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, had failed to demonstrate that God is "welcoming".

He also repeated accusations that the Church was "obsessed" with the issue of gay priests.

He said it should rather be focusing on global problems such as Aids.

"Our world is facing problems - poverty, HIV and Aids - a devastating pandemic, and conflict," said Archbishop Tutu, 76.

"God must be weeping looking at some of the atrocities that we commit against one another."
This Archbishop is a Christian. Guys like the one in Canterbury are more like Leviticites or Deuteronomists.

I have such vast respect and affection for Archbishop Tutu. He's fearless, loving, highly educated, genuine, and altogether beautiful.
