WINGNUTS FURIOUS AND ETC.  11:13 am April 6, 2012

Wingnuts Have New Kenyan Communist Anti-Colonial Enemy No. 1: Archbishop Desmond Tutu

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Look at these fucking commies.You guys, we did not know this was a thing?

Observers are asking why a Catholic university in Spokane would invite Archbishop Desmond Tutu to address its graduating class considering his decades-long record of supporting abortion, homosexuality, female ordination, theological liberalism, and collectivist economic theories condemned by the Roman Catholic Church.

So in addition to being the moral force behind the ending of Apartheid in South Africa, Archbishop Desmond Tutu is awesome in every other possible way as well! Here, read some more!

Tutu has also been outspoken in his affirmation of the homosexual agenda. “If God, as they say, is homophobic, I wouldn’t worship that God,” he has said. Tutu has also said he was “saddened” and “ashamed” of the negative reaction to the ordination of the openly homosexual Vicki Gene Robinson as an Episcopal bishop in 2003. Six years later, he supported the Church of Scotland’s decision to ordain non-celibate homosexuals.

“On an international scale, Desmond Tutu opposes Catholic teaching on just about every non-negotiable moral issue,” Ritchie told LifeSiteNews. “He’s a strident supporter of abortion, contraception, the homosexual agenda, and Marxist class warfare.”

Hmmm, how else is Archbishop Desmond Tutu at war with the Catholic Church?

In his book God is Not a Christian, he wrote that Christians should not claim “possess all truth” but rather “be ready to learn…from the techniques of the spiritual life that are available in religions other than our own.” He has long supported women’s ordination.

So Archbishop Desmond Tutu believes exactly what Your Editrix’s commie nuns the Sisters of Notre Dame at La Reina High School believed (let’s see, what did Sister Mary Claire say? Oh yes, every religion is a path to God; then they showed us Romero, because of how they were communists). Burn, excommunicate, repeat. And then please to dig up Mother Teresa and burn her while you are at it, as she communistically did not charge people money when she nursed them through their Plague.

The Ghost of Andrew Breitbart has not yet weighed in on Desmond Tutu War on Catholicism, or Barack Obama’s learning how to make eternal war on Catholics at his old black knees. Also: birf certicate. [LifeSiteNews, via RightWingWatch]

Tutu supports men who wear tutus?

GunToting[Redacted] April 6, 2012 at 12:35 pm

He's a vicar in a tutu.

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 1:21 am

And, also women in tutus. Good for him.

Steverino247 April 6, 2012 at 11:19 am

And don't get him started on fucking children…

noodlesalad April 6, 2012 at 11:19 am

When Jesus was crucified, it was Good Friday. When we get to crucify all the people whose very existence threaten our comfortable, segregated lives which are predicated on hate, exclusion, and fear, that's a GREAT Friday!

OC_Surf_Serf April 6, 2012 at 11:38 am

Sunday will really suck then, tho.

noodlesalad April 6, 2012 at 11:54 am

Reverse rapture!

V572 Hogan Gidley April 6, 2012 at 12:58 pm

That was what was so great about the Inquisition. Good times, Savanarola!

x111e7thst April 6, 2012 at 11:19 am

I will not take Archbishop Tutu seriously until he gets himself some red Prada loafers.

Lascauxcaveman April 6, 2012 at 11:55 am

He could use a better hat, too.

SexySmurf April 6, 2012 at 11:21 am

I thought he was the dog in The Wizard of Oz.

Tutu too?

flamingpdog April 6, 2012 at 11:51 am

Herm Cain's campaign slogan sure has taken a beating.

Tutu much!

Dashboard Buddha April 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm

And I'll get your little God too!

No, but he does bless the rains down in Africa.

gurukalehuru April 6, 2012 at 2:53 pm

You say Patutu and I say Patoto. Let's call the whole thing off.

CZL April 6, 2012 at 11:23 am

Also, I don't know how this slipped past them, but he's black. That right there means his Christianity is suspect, because it isn't Southern Baptist. You know, the church formed solely because they thought that owning black people was something God approved of.

Biff April 6, 2012 at 11:30 am

But did he ever shout "god damn South Africa"?

nounverb911 April 6, 2012 at 11:32 am

Probably, it's just not on Youtube.

flamingpdog April 6, 2012 at 11:42 am

Anybody ever seen Tutu and the Reverend Wright in the same room together?

V572 Hogan Gidley April 6, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Slavery's okay cuz it's in the Bible. God said it, I believe it, that settles it.

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 1:22 am

Not just the Father, but the Son specifically had a whole little lesson on how to treat one's slave(s).

DaRooster April 6, 2012 at 11:24 am

“[Christians should] be ready to learn…from the techniques of the spiritual life that are available in religions other than our own.”

This Tutu guy is funny… will his comedy tour be coming to Nor-Cal?

JustPixelz April 6, 2012 at 11:24 am

Waiting for Rick Santorum to throw-up in 3 … 2 …

Waiting for Newt Gingrich to be outraged at the despicable hostility to Christianity displayed by this "archbishop" in 3 … 2 …

Waiting for Sarah Palin™ to draw comparisons between Desmond Tutu and Reverend Wright in 3 … 2 …

Chill-A-Sketch April 6, 2012 at 11:24 am

You forgot to mention that he also won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Not_So_Much April 6, 2012 at 11:31 am

Ever since Barry HUSSEAIN Obummer won it, that's a strike against anyone else who has. I mean, gotta be a fake thing, amiright?

flamingpdog April 6, 2012 at 11:38 am

Don't forget Hank Kissinger, either.

V572 Hogan Gidley April 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

The NPP got downgraded quite a bit when they gave it to evil war dwarf Henry Kissinger.

Swampgas_Man April 6, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Not to mention Jimmy Carter.

gurukalehuru April 6, 2012 at 2:56 pm

Jimmy deserved it, and has earned it again after the fact with his work for Habitat for Humanity. Nasty little warmonger Menachem Begin, not so much.

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Aha, so you're Lee Whitnum!

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 1:24 am

Barb April 6, 2012 at 11:25 am

Happy Good Friday! I'm cool with Jesus. He was born and I get presents and he died and I get chocolate. It's all good.

flamingpdog April 6, 2012 at 11:49 am

And if he ever does come back for a return visit, all the Jebus-freaks get bodily ascended to Heaven and we can go about making this a sane and pleasant world to live in.

Lascauxcaveman April 6, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Yeah but then the poor guy is stuck with them. What the hell did he ever do to deserve that? I like Jesus; and that is a fate I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

OH – I get it. Jesus comes down to earth, all the rapturers shoot up to heaven, Jesus gets to stay down here and party with the cool folks.

He's got this thing all worked out.

Steverino247 April 6, 2012 at 12:22 pm

You sound like my mom. Well, there goes that fantasy…

Barb April 6, 2012 at 12:32 pm

Steve! Sit up straight when you post.

Steverino247 April 6, 2012 at 12:43 pm

And why do you always go to the bathroom after reading a post from Barb? Get out of there!

Negropolis April 7, 2012 at 1:25 am

Depending on where you live, that fantasy may totally be acceptable. Hell, in Arkansas, it's the only fantasy they are allowed.

OC_Surf_Serf April 6, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Happy Pesach back at cha!

Chocolate? Sorry, doesn't go with all the maror (horseradish)…

nounverb911 April 6, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Mmmm! Chocolate covered macaroons.

LiveToServeYa April 6, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Somebody really needs to make a chocolate-covered Jesus peep. Hmm…

Hoisted_Peatard April 6, 2012 at 8:23 pm

Yes and if Jesus ever returns as the bible says and these wingnuts believe we'll get to watch the ensuing psychological breakdown. I'll scenario it out: Jesus reveals himself as being highly semitic in the actual, non-European diaspora way (oh noes! brown!) and begins preaching "some bullshit or another" about taking care of each other, being unselfish and peaceful, not basing your entire belief system on fear, revulsion and punishment….yes, it would be a sweet time to watch the smiles melt away, replaced by fear and revulsion before someone shouts "homo!" and someone else shouts "commie!" and another one accuses him of being a "n*&^&r lover!" then the flames are lit, the cross is burned with him on it (a new very American wrinkle in the crucifixion) and they demand god to send another one, only to make this one like George Dubya Bush. THE END.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:22 pm

My understanding is that the second go round is supposed to be with a sword. So, what you said, except at the end we have diced and skewered wing nuts.

el_donaldo April 6, 2012 at 11:25 am

Modern Catholic Church: "Seriously, let's just dump all that commie peace on earth crap and focus on hounding people for their differences, personal struggles, and vaginas."

randcoolcatdaddy April 6, 2012 at 11:26 am

"Observers are asking why a Catholic university in Spokane would invite Archbishop Desmond Tutu to address its graduating class…"

Other observers wondered by Tutu would want to show up.

Native_of_SL_UT April 6, 2012 at 11:52 am

Most Observers are preoccupied with trying to figure out how Peter Bishop came back.

Lascauxcaveman April 6, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Spokane is really nice in the spring time. Gonzaga has a lovely campus, located near many decent brewpubs. Spring skiing at Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain is some of the best in the world, Spokane's got a half dozen really good golf courses nearby…

V572 Hogan Gidley April 6, 2012 at 1:02 pm

And if you need a dose of aerospace machismo, you can head over to Fair Child Air Force Base. In Missouri, you can go to White Man Air Force Base. These things are true.

So Tutu is what a REAL Christian should be. No wonder these wing nuts don't recognize his version of Christianity.

HempDogbane April 6, 2012 at 11:28 am

Tutu wears a kilt !

Oblios_Cap April 6, 2012 at 11:29 am

Good Christians listen to Peter and Paul, not Jesus.

Biff April 6, 2012 at 11:33 am

What about Mary?

sullivanst April 6, 2012 at 11:37 am

Listen to a woman? With a vagina? Are you crazy?

Oblios_Cap April 6, 2012 at 11:39 am

Geez – somebody didn't pay attention in catechism!

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 11:53 am

Well, yeah. But remember that it's a very special kind of vagina that gets revirginized after being impregnated. (You know, like Bristol Palin's.) Mary's mom had one too, according to the most recent infallible information on the subject.

Boojum April 6, 2012 at 10:24 pm

So, it's virgins all the way down? What happened to the turtles?

Fare la Volpe April 6, 2012 at 11:42 am

Whore.

Toomush_Infer April 6, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Ummm, well….Paul….said it was "better to marry than to burn…." …so there's that….

Wow, it's almost like he isn't Catholic or something….

littlebigdaddy April 6, 2012 at 11:34 am

I guess the wingtards are all confused by the whole "archbishop" thing. And the lack of snakehandling.

Anglican Bishops are people too, my cradle-Episcopalian friends!

I always thought that "Cardinal Sin" from the Philippines had a funnier name.

How come right-wingers hate Barry's Reverend Wright so much?

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 11:49 am

Because he's just not the Right Reverend!

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 11:57 am

But "Cardinal Law" from Boston [moved to Rome, beyond the reach of subpoenas] had a more ironic name.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 12:01 pm

Outstanding! I forgot about that one.

My favorite, though has to be Cardinal Chunder.

SayItWithWookies April 6, 2012 at 11:35 am

Gee, maybe growing up and living in a country where people were oppressed, marginalized, mistreated, tortured and killed based solely on an arbitrarily chosen characteristic that set them apart from the ruling — uh, race had some sort of long-term affect on his perception of how prejudiced societies should be.

And this is why codifying a set of doctrines based only on argument from authority — a logical fallacy — is stupid, harmful and wrong, and why any religion that bases its principles on such a fallacy is irredeemably unfit for a liberal society.

Generation[redacted] April 6, 2012 at 11:39 am

Oh sure, bring up race, like a race baiting race profiteer. It's getting so that Real Americans can't oppose communists like Tutu and MLK without being accused of racism.

SayItWithWookies April 6, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Although MLK has recently become a Republican, even though the GOP were fond of calling him a "professional negro" and a member of the "permanently aggrieved class" back when he was actually protesting for workers' rights.

MadBrahms April 6, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Only because all of his politics have been stripped away and shoved down the memory hole. Idiots like Glenn Beck blather on about justice without any reference to actual injustice or what King specifically fought for.

Fuck those people.

It's the secular version of Mormon postmortem baptism.

Generation[redacted] April 6, 2012 at 11:37 am

"Desmond Tutu opposes Catholic teaching on just about every non-negotiable moral issue… abortion, contraception, the homosexual agenda, and Marxist class warfare.”

So this guy is straight up admitting that thou shalt not kill is negotiable, along with all that stuff about feeding the poor and love thy neighbor.

But we all knew that already.

Deportably_Jose April 6, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Personally, I find it really fucking interesting that the opposing the Catholic teaching on charity is apparently magically now a non-negotiable Catholic teaching.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 11:38 am

“On an international scale, Desmond Tutu opposes Catholic teaching on just about every non-negotiable moral issue,” Ritchie told LifeSiteNews. “He’s a strident supporter of abortion, contraception, the homosexual agenda, and Marxist class warfare.”

So, let's see. According to Ritchie:

Non-Negotiable Moral Issues = "abortion, contraception, the homosexual agenda, and Marxist class warfare.”

Negotiable Moral Issues = State Death Penalty, wars of choice, ignoring the poor, corporate greed, inserting religious dogma into secular laws, genocide, environmental destruction, nuclear weapons and of course fucking the children.

Yeah, I still don't get it.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 6, 2012 at 12:06 pm

As I've said before, these people have redacted their Bibles down to Leviticus, Revelations, and the Parable of the Talents, plus maybe the epistles where Paul condemns homos and uppity women.

They are Pharisees, and, as Max von Sydow said in Hannah and Her Sisters, "if Jesus came back and saw what's going on in his name, he'd never stop throwing up."

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Agreed, and "Pharisees" is an apt description of what these people are as any I've seen, thanks.
I think that if Jesus ever could somehow come back today, his current Followers would give him the same end as Valentine Michael Smith.

Doktor StrangeZoom April 6, 2012 at 12:18 pm

You actually need to do even better than that, and take the black marker to some heafty chunks of Leviticus as well, since even Leviticus has some choice commandments on caring for a society's poor, infirm, and "strangers", i.e immigrants.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Hey! This is Americuh! We can't have that- it would be Soshulizum!

I'm not a Biblical scholar, but I'd be disappointed if there wasn't a a "Parable of the BALLS" somewhere.

Why would a Catholic college host Tutu? Answer: it's a Jesuit college.

BerkeleyBear April 6, 2012 at 12:03 pm

And a pretty damn secular one at that. Gonzaga is trying to become Notre Dame West, only with the emphasis on basketball instead of football as a recruiting tool.

Lascauxcaveman April 6, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Those Jezzies DO seem to enjoy being the loose canon on the deck of the Catholic Church, don't they?

(misspelling intentional)

Ruhe April 6, 2012 at 12:31 pm

I've wondered if the long-term trajectory of the whole Jesuit movement wasn't based on a type of intellectual curiosity that would eventually lead adherents to simply think themselves right out of Christianity, or at least into a more "Buddhist" version of Christianity.

doloras April 6, 2012 at 7:24 pm

I've read Jesuit literature along the lines of "those Muslims ain't so bad, it's all the same God anyway, we should talk to them more". So I'm surprised that Benny XVI hasn't run them out on a rail yet.

Actually, I matriculated at a Jesuit school (University of San Francisco). I thought it was the best education I had ever received in my life. Of course, as a recovering Baptist, anything looked pretty good at the time. Even the "religion" unit was somewhat benign: they understood where I was coming from and didn't try to shove any dogma down my throat!

The truth in a nutshell.

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 11:47 am

It is especially outrageous when you note that the men "Archbishop" (so-called) Tutu opposed led moral, righteous governments that banned pornography, gambling, homosexuality and other such corrupting vices. They made businesses close on Sundays. Abortion was banned (though they had the human weakness to allow it in cases of rape and to save the "life" [air quotes] of the mother). And yet not one of these heroic defenders of Christian decency – not Daniel Malan, not J.G. Strijdom, not Hendrik Verwoerd, not P.W. Botha – were ever invited by Gonzaga to speak.

On this Good Friday I thank the risen Jesus that the Catholic Church is finally beginning to see that it chose the wrong side when it embraced Tutu, of Henry VIII's schismatic church instead of solid Christians.

"Moral Righteous Governments"…and those would be?

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Well, the South African National Party governments from 1948 to 1994 may have had a few flaws, but they score off the charts when it comes to LifeSiteNews proper views on what Keith Richie calls the "non-negotiable" moral issues.

Just sayin'.

Hi Jesus! Thanks for the day off!

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 11:51 am

So, these "Observers" that seem to have Problems with a Nobel Prize winning Archbishop:

Yeah, let's listen to those guys.

Lascauxcaveman April 6, 2012 at 11:52 am

and collectivist economic theories condemned by the Roman Catholic Church

This is what this moran thinks we were taught in the Catholic schools: "Because Jesus said NEVER share. Sharing SUCKS."

prommie April 6, 2012 at 12:04 pm

"From each according to their ability, to each according to their need" is a paraphrase of a line from The Acts of the Apostles. Its a description of the way the original followers of Jesus lived.
One of the most conspicuous miracles to occur after Jesus left, according to Acts of the Apostles, was when God struck dead the man and his wife who held back some of their possessions, instead of handing it all over, because, as was explained in Acts, the followers of Jesus had no personal possessions and "held everything in common."

Ruhe April 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I've never seen the face of an Xtian as they were being smacked upside the head with the Bible…but I'd really like to see that.

SayItWithWookies April 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm

There's a subtle difference now between sharing everything among the people and giving all of your possessions to the church so that they can distribute them as they see fit. The church's objection is that too many people are doing the first, which is slanderous and sinful, and not enough are doing the noble second one.

The Romans still had the best idea vis-à-vis Scotland…. although I think they stole it from Herman Cain.

Again I'm gonna mention John Shelby Spong, the Episcopal Bishop of Newark who says Jesus weren't no God and Easter is a fairy tale. His sin, of course, is saying publicly the things that all priests are taught in the seminary.

FakaktaSouth April 6, 2012 at 12:01 pm

I have "Living in Sin?" by the good Bishop Spong. He's the one who taught me about Yaweh so that when Stephen Colbert said stuff I already knew who he was.

The same thing happened here in lovely Minnesota. I've got a feeling there's a cabal of idiots who follow Tutu around and whine.

Hey, I'm old enough to remember during the last American protest of Apartheid, how "observers" damned Tutu and the others for accepting aid from Commie Cuba — because Reagan's harshest comment on Apartheid was "Tsk, tsk."

I love Desmond Tutu. As a recovering Catholic and current Christian follower (left side of the church), he questions what is wrong with Catholicism. Much like Murkowski does the Conservative base. But I really don't love her as much cause I'm not a recovering Conservative.

prommie April 6, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Nothing seems to get the haters to hating harder than people who don't hate enough. The one thing the haters won't tolerate is tolerance. Then one thing they won't forgive is forgiveness. And they just hate people who don't hate.

Seems like they just resent their betters. Most assholes do.

" the homosexual agenda"

Does the homosexual agenda get sent around via email a day or two before an upcoming homosexual meeting?

"In his book God is Not a Christian, he wrote that Christians should not claim “possess all truth” but rather “be ready to learn…from the techniques of the spiritual life that are available in religions other than our own.” "

Whether the wingnuts want to believe it or not, Vatican II said that the Roman Catholic Church recognizes that all monotheistic religions are worshiping the same God. Nostra Aetate, one of the statements coming out of Vatican II, said Catholics and Muslims have a lot in common and should work together toward common understanding and benefit. There is also a fab part that says that it's contrary to the Church's teachings to discriminate against, show hatred toward, or harass any person or people on the basis of color, race, religion, standing in life, etc.

Seeing as Greater Wingnuttia has added as another charge against Obama that he had meetings with a former personal assistant to John XXIII, I have a feeling that appeals to Vatican II will not carry many scourges with this crowd.

So are the wingnuts big fans of the Society of Pope Pius X, or what?

mormos April 6, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Do you think the repubs deliberately create false hot-button issues like this so the populace is less likely to notice when they do more sinister but less exciting things like lower taxes for the wealthy, open public land to mining and logging, and provide endless rebates to corporations?

also, desmund tutu is one of the greatest men now living, and adorable, i want to hug the shit out of him!

Terry April 6, 2012 at 1:16 pm

No, I think it's because the Republicans are stupid and lack even a basic working knowledge of the documents (Constitution, for instance) or institutions they claim to hold dear.

owhatever April 6, 2012 at 12:29 pm

The Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu whooping it up together about the good side of religion, although one is catholic and the other is a llama. They would lose bad in Arizona.

mormos April 6, 2012 at 12:31 pm

that's a ticket i would vote for!

Chichikovovich April 6, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Though Michele Bachmann's support would win some votes for the llama.

Chet Kincaid April 6, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Tutu ain't Catholic.

doloras April 6, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Funnily enough, the Dalai Lama is no fan of homosexuality or abortion. But he gets a free pass for that from Western liberals because "Buddhism ain't really a religion".

Geminisunmars April 6, 2012 at 12:31 pm

All I can say is: "Happy Pesach, Everybody."

ttommyunger April 6, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Don't give a fuck what Tutu says. The same goes for the Pope and the other kid-fucking self-righteous prigs in this piece. There, I've said it and I'm glad!

__kth__ April 6, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Conservatives never got, probably still don't get, why apartheid was such a big deal.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I have it on good authority that Archbishop Desmond Tutu has been Touched by His Noodly Appendage. John Ritchie and the folks at Life Site News most decidedly have not.

GemlikeFlame April 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

OK, so maybe I misunderstand this. Desmond Tutu is a retired Anglican bishop. That requires him to support US Catholic social dogma in exactly what way?

Nostrildamus April 6, 2012 at 12:42 pm

In short, he's a Wonketeer! Hooray!

Antispandex April 6, 2012 at 2:09 pm

Ritchie told LifeSiteNews. “He’s a strident supporter of abortion, contraception, the homosexual agenda, and Marxist class warfare.”

Is this some kind of a trick to get you atheists to believe in god? You know, show you that not everyone who is a believer is bag-o-nuts? Anyway, I think he should be our next President…he's fron Kenya or something like that, and it's already been done once, right? Now, where do we get a fake Hawiian birth certificate?

MadBrahms April 6, 2012 at 4:07 pm

"When you meet people who are trying to live a religion which refuses to be an opium of the masses, an alien and alienating force; when you meet people for whom the love of God involves human love, your atheism will give way to respect, to sympathy—who knows?—to faith." – Dom Helder Camara

The last two words, eh, not so much, but there have been some pretty vocal anti-capitalist, and-colonial, and pro-women / teh gays religious people out there. The silver lining is that by bringing them up, blowhards like Breitbart and these other 'nuts are undermining the church's usual strategy, which is to try to erase them from history and pretend they were just marginal figures.

mavenmaven April 6, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Nobel Peace Prize laureate archbishop Desmond Tutu, speaking at Jerusalem's Yakar Centre for Social Concern (an inclusive Orthodox synagogue), stressed the primary role of absolution and people telling their stories: 'Nursing a grudge is bad for your health … You can never have reconciliation without truth, and you have to risk telling the truth before you ask for forgiveness and get on with repentance'.
That's why the repubs hate Tutu. No reconciliation without GUNZ!

docterry6973 April 6, 2012 at 3:57 pm

I don't care about his 'Peace' prize or his good works or his innovations in dance apparel. If Tutu isn't pro-Life he has no business talking to Catholics, ever, about anything.

glamourdammerung April 6, 2012 at 5:19 pm

Republicans hated Tutu for a long time now.

I am a gay atheist who's just fallen in love with a much older, straight (?) black man who serves the Church of the Whore of Babylon (RCC). I must be the personification of the Wingnut Antichrist.

They realize that he was an archbishop in the Anglican church, right? Of course they don't. In fact, it'd probably have made sense to make that known in the post for those who don't know.

C_R_Eature April 6, 2012 at 1:13 pm
