A bold stand against homosexuals
South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu has criticized the Anglican Church and its leadership for its attitudes towards homosexuality. He has rebuked religious conservatives. 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... In the face of all of that, our Church, especially the Anglican Church, at this time is almost obsessed with questions of human sexuality." ... In the interview, Archbishop Tutu also rebuked religious conservatives who said homosexuality was a choice. "It is a perversion if you say to me that a person chooses to be homosexual."...BBC
More Christian leaders should voice their concern and definite stand on the growing phenomena of unnatural relationships derived from the notorious Sodom and Gomorrah syndrome. Man and woman had been created for pro-creation relationships. How do gays, lesbians and homosexuals re-populate the earth?
Christians and their leaders should not take such "trivial" matters and succumb to a silent majority. As the good book says, "It is the little foxes that spoil the vine."
Let us add our non-violent voices to make a righteous stand for the Kingdom of God.
