from TIME, March 22, 2010, 10 Questions. The South African Archbishop’s new book makes the case for goodness. Desmond Tutu will now take your questions
What is your favorite Bible verse, and why? Satu Rahikainen, Tampere, Finland
Romans 5: 8. “Whilst we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” It sums up the Gospel wonderfully. We think we have to impress God so that God would love us. But he says,No, you are loved already, even at your worst.
Do you support the appointment of gay and lesbian clergy? Phillip Reinheimer,Penn Valley, California
Of course. If I don’t support them, why support the appointment of any other person? Their sexuality is as much a part of who they are as my race is. They don’t choose it. I don’t choose it. Two of my chaplains when I was Archbishop were gay. One is now a bishop, and the other is the dean of a cathedral.
