Tutu chides Church for gay stance

A few days ago, our post about a rabbi speaking out against a homophobic interpretation of the Bible attracted a righteous comment from a reader, showing that a number of religious people are still finding it difficult to accept homosexuality, strangely, illogically and conveniently hand-picking which of the rules outlined by the Bible should be kept and which should not.

Now, it is Desmond Tutu's turn to join the debate. In an interview for forthcoming BBC Radio 4 programme, the South African Archbishop has criticised the Anglican Church and its leadership for its negative attitude towards homosexuality.

You can read a report on the interview here.

From Calvary To Lambeth will be aired on BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday, 27 November at 8pm.
