African Christian Democratic Party president, Rev Kenneth Meshoe, today criticised  recent remarks by Archbishop Desmond Tutu at the launch of the United Nations’ “Free and Equal” campaign to promote fair treatment of LGBT persons.

At the event Tutu reportedly said: “I would not worship a God who is homophobic.” The retired archbishop also said he would rather go to hell than to a homophobic heaven.

 “Archbishop Desmond Tutu is out of order when he alleged that God is a homophobic God, and that he finds fault with Scriptures that teaches that a homosexual lifestyle is a sin before God,” says Meshoe, in a media statment.

“We ask Archbishop Tutu not to confuse people who respect the Scriptures and we advise him to keep his unbelief to himself if he does not believe in the teachings of the Holy Bible.

“There is nowhere in Scripture that teaches us that God hates anybody. It is Biblical teaching that God loves everybody but that He hates sin. If sinners cannot live up to the standard of the word of God they should not find fault with Scripture.

:We urge all those whose conduct and morals violate Scriptural teaching to repent from their sins be they adulterers, homosexuals, murderers or rapists,” says Meshoe.

  1. Yes the reverend Tutu indeed needs to keep his unbelief to himself. He became irrelevant long ago when he pandered with mammon in his commercialised tv adverts.

    But to the reverend Meshoe too, please read Psalms 5:5 and Psalms 11:5 very carefully. We don’t always like what we read in the Bible.

    • Ladies and gentlemen I believe we need to pray for our leaders than attacking them yes we don’t embrace what He has said however lets pray for Hon Arch, D Tutu, may God enlighten him not to lose but to gain life even at his aging stage. Well I personally don’t have a problem with the people that are gay but I have a very, very, very serious problem with the state including the behavior of gayism please pray with me on that as i am also not perfect. Gayism can not be endorsed worse of all even to a point of this siniful act being given rights why? biologically they cant naturally reproduce, biblically this is an undisputed act of sin. If that is the case then wellcome to Sodom and Gomorrah that is where gayism was legal and normal this is a sin there is no way that it can be legalised no,no,no, the bible says ” For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one. And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another-man committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and the penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was (their) fitting retribution.” (AMP version) Romans 1: 26&27. this is as good as legalism murder just like abortion. No, No,No we have lost it we need to God back to God. we really need complete spiritual overhaul and total repentance as a nation.

  2. What kind of a Christian leader doesn’t obey God through reading the bible?God the creator says no to homosexuality,no to gayism if you repent He always forgives.Homosexuals need to repent from unnatural to natural,to God’s order or they’ll perish in the last when God judges in the end.

  3. He just chose hell for sure. God cannot be mocked.

  4. Indeed, – Christians should follow Scripture and stand for their freely chosen Scriptural standard and Scriptural life-style too! Christians, – discern!

  5. Anyone that “hates” homosexuals is nothing but a narrow minded bigot, because homosexuality is just one of many sins mentioned in the Bible – if you hate one then you must hate them all! However, the Scriptures are not a smorgasbord where we can pick and choose which passages to keep and which to reject. Scripture is clear that homosexuality is a sin (1Co 6:9), like any other sin, so anyone who promotes homosexuality is simply saying that Christians are free to sin as they please. Seems to me that the archbishop is more New Age in his outlook, than Christian??

    It seems the Archbishop prefers to twist Scripture to suit his own twisted interpretation. My concern is whether ordinary folks will be sucked into the lie or if they will zealously rely on the infallible Word of God as it stands.

  7. deaf pastor rensburg aggenbach

    yes. i can see he wants more attention to himself while he became older. he look attention for sinners but forget the bible teach. if you are with the world God is against you. if you are on God side, God is with you. so be carefull. at last he no read what say the bible in leviticus20:13. it is God’s law and no man’s law. he ignore that verse. wow! then he is also gay too sorry

  8. Let us also not forget that the Archbishop is also being investigated regarding his direct involvement with the Marie Stopes’ Abortion Clinic on Bree Street in the Mother City where it was uncovered that his face and signature is attached to posters in that establishment and where the text by him gives choice to pregnant women and abortion. He should not even be there and involved. The problem is though that Mr. Tutu is what one would term as; A ‘Darling’ of the nation and as such either thinks that he is untouchable and or no one is willing to tackle him about such things unless it comes from within the church itself. Let me end by saying that if you sell your soul to the devil, then you may get along in this life, but come the time to stand before the throne of God you had best be prepared for some strife! Many blessings to all you true and loyal followers of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ from Piperjames.

  9. Mr Tutu, I challenge you to lose your title, cloak and cross and embrace your new beliefs in entirety or repent and return to God’s Word.

  10. Oh poor Tutu he is a wolf in a sheep skin, but now his sheep skin is wearing out read Luke 12 vs 1-4. You must be born again bishop dnt be just a church goer and leader. Read John 3 and learn from Nicodemus!! From Koti
