Desmond Tutu made a pretty good career for himself in the 80′s when he was speaking out against apartheid. He denounced the racism prevalent in South Africa, and won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.
Now Tutu is making a name for himself in a different way; :
Retired Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who earned a Nobel for his peaceful opposition to apartheid, on Tuesday urged Cape Town’s renowned opera troupe not to tour Israel until what he calls discrimination there ends.
“Cape Town Opera should postpone its proposed tour next month until both Israeli and Palestinian opera lovers of the region have equal opportunity and unfettered access to attend performances,” he said.
Tutu charges that by bringing international artists to perform, the Tel Aviv Opera House “advances Israel’s fallacious claim to being a ‘civilized democracy.’”
Despicable. I think Jesus would be ashamed of Tutu’s actions.
