"I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place. I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this...In the King James version of the bible, we find the following:
I am as passionate about this campaign as I ever was about apartheid. For me, it is at the same level."
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is an abomination." (Leviticus: chapter 18, verse 22)
"The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind... shall inherit the kingdom of God." (Corinthians: chapter 6, verses 9/10)
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death." (Leviticus: chapter 20, verse 13)
"God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly." (Romans chapter 1, verses 26-27)Looks like your going to hell then, Des. God doesn't appear to be as keen as you on 'abomination,' 'abusers,' the 'effeminate', 'men with men' and just about anything that isn't 'natural.'
I wonder how Tutu, and all the other elite abomination groupies in the Christian Church, got to progress so far up the holy pole putting two fingers up at the bits of the Bible they didn't like?
"I’m personally proud of this. I think it’s a really good step. I’ve told the Bill team (the Ministers behind the creation of the Gay Marriage Act) I’m now going to reassign them because, of course, all over the world people would have been watching this and we’ve set something of an example of how to pass good legislation in good time.You know when they used to say the lunatics are running the asylum? Well, they were right, weren't they? They just forgot to tell us that they're out here running everything else as well.
Many countries are going to want to copy this. I talk about how we’ve got to export more, so I’m going to export the Bill team. I think they can take it around the world...
There’s still a lot more work to be done. There’s work to be done talking to our Commonwealth partners about decriminalising homosexuality in various countries. There’s a lot of work to be done on homophobic bullying in schools, which is still a scourge in our country. There’s a lot of work to be done in terms of hate crimes and how we stop and stamp that out in our society...
I think of young children growing up at school, who might be uncertain about their sexuality, knowing that now, in the highest place in the land, in Parliament, we’ve passed this law that says that marriage is for you, whether you’re gay or whether you’re straight. And that is so important to young people growing up."
Along with the abominations, the abusers, the effeminate and the unnatural.
