Archbishop Desmond Tutu is a hypocrite?

30 August 2012, 13:22

The Most Reverend Archbishop Desmond Tutu is a hypocrite? 

The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town and Ex British Prime Minister Tony Blair have much in common as they are both Christians. They are brothers in Christ and will be in paradise together sitting at the feet of the Saviour of all mankind. They read and submit to the Bible, are humble and obedient servants to Christ and they willingly bow the knee to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. 

Yet in this world they will not be sitting together at the same table as the moral custodian of the world has refused to sit next to Tony Blair the invader of Iraq. Is this for real? Will they even sit down in the same Church worship service? No of course not. So who is the hypocrite? 

Was Tony Blair correct in going to the aid of George Bush? It is still too soon for history to judge that action and in any case it is easy in retrospect to judge any ones actions. Should you have got married or had children? If the marriage failed or the children where rebellious society drop outs, in retrospect probably not? Yet at the time it seemed the right thing to do. 

Sadaam Hussein was the butcher of Baghdad and had chemicals weapons that he used willingly on his own dissenting citizens and he could have had weapons of mass destruction like nukes. No question about that. His army was the fourth biggest army in the world. Why?

Like Iran today he wanted to obliterate Israel off the face of the earth. So the Arch should stick to Church politics and not world politics, because he cares nothing for those oppressed by Sadaam Hussein or those oppressed by Islamic fanatic Governments like Iran etc. 

That in my book justifies Tony Blair’s actions. As one wise person said “Evil flourishes where good men do nothing”. Can you imagine our bubbling and indecisive President Zuma doing something in the presence of evil? He has done nothing in the presence of the Butcher of the Matabele tyrant Robert Gabriel Mugabe Savour of Zimbabwe.

Did President Mebiki do anything about the scourge of AIDS that killed millions of South Africans? No he did nothing. Some people can govern and some can not. Action speaks louder than words. No South African leader can even be compared with Tony Blair or simpleton yet man of action George Bush. If there is one, who is he? 

Besides if Yahweh was in South Africa he should be arrested and brought to the ICC for  crimes committed against humanity that one sees recorded all over the Bible in the Old Testament and in the New. When the Son of Man comes back again billions will be killed at Armageddon and the blood of the dead will flow to the shoulder of horses. Before that Angels from God will kill one third of mankind or two billion people. Now that is horror on God's scale. 

Yet The Most Reverend Desmond Tutu Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town and Ex British Prime Minister Tony Blair will feel that is okay because those murdered and butchered refused to accept Jesus as the Son of God. Yes they are both hypocrites because what is good for the goose is good for the gander. They should both be ashamed to sit at the same Christian table where butchers of billions are worshipped. Even atheists know that killing is wrong.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
