Desmond Tutu denounced religions that discriminate against LGTB-identified people by making some very strong statements during the United Nations’ launch of its gay-rights program in Cape Town this Friday, reports AFP.
He leaves no doubt about his opinions regarding LGTB rights, declaring:
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.
I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level.
