Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu should be greatly respected for his role in ending the appalling system of apartheid in the Republic of South Africa.
He was awarded the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for his courageous actions, and, as the result of the efforts of many brave people, apartheid was abolished in 1994.
He recently gave an interview regarding his involvement in a United Nations’ effort to promote equality for the gay community in South Africa. His efforts are partly aimed at ending the horrible violence against that community. We wholeheartedly agree that all people should support the ending of violence against any group.
