one of my heroes

From today's Globe and Mail:

South Africa's retired archbishop Desmond Tutu last week told the BBC he was ashamed of the church for its attitude toward homosexuals and blamed Archbishop Rowan Williams for not demonstrating the attributes of a "welcoming God."

"If God as they say is homophobic, I wouldn't worship that God," he said.

I do not believe in a god. I do however, believe in the power of very good people to effect change in the world. Bishop Tutu is one of those people, a man who believes that human rights should apply equally, to everyone.

All we have is our humanity. And every day we are pulled back to it by tragedy, injustice and disrespect. The fact you are affected by Bishop Tutu says a lot about who you are and your perspective on the world.

Happy Thanksgiving! I do love you!
