Desmond Tutu former Archbishop of Cape Town has come out against homophobia in Africa and around the world saying it is a
“crime against humanity” and “every bit unjust” as apartheid………. Yet, all over the world, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are persecuted, writes Archbishop Tutu. “We treat them as pariahs and push them outside our communities. We make them doubt that they too are children of God – and this must be nearly the ultimate blasphemy. We blame them for what they are,” he adds
Desmond Tutu is a lone voice amongst the vile homophobia of Africa’s political and religious leaders – a man of compasion, a human being.
