Words of Wisdom

"Jesus did not say, ‘I, if I be lifted up, will draw some. Jesus said, I, if I be lifted up, will draw all. All, all, all. All black, white, yellow, rich, poor, clever, not-so-clever, beautiful, not-so-beautiful. It’s one of the most radical things. All, all, all belong: gay, lesbian, so-called straight, all.
All are meant to be held in this incredible embrace that will not let us go."

Bishop Desmond Tutu

amen brother,

you should update more often. I miss reading your blog.

All are called to come to Him, but not by remaining in their sin; the hateful racist surely isn't saved while maintaining his hatred intact is he? Or the warprofiter, laughing at the misery of others - does he go to heaven smuggly? Moral relativism sounds great if applied to sexual sins, but if principled it must apply to ALL sins; including the politically incorrect ones.

So.... is THIS the "all inclusive" savior you preach? The one who accepts us without any condition, even the condition of asking for pardon for our trespasses against others?

You quote Desmond Tutu, but check this: Notes from underground: Desmond Tutu barred from US Catholic university.

Add your voice to the protest!
