Peace Prize Winner Bishop Desmond Tutu Advocates Media Censorship On Behalf Of Muslim Terrorists

Posted by Job on June 28, 2007

Jews frequently call Bishop Tutu a vehement foe of Israel. I ignore such talk, because in doing so they generally leave out the inconvenient fact that Israel supported the South Africa apartheid regime until the very end, even when the rest of the world had turned their backs on them, just might have something to do with it. Now while Tutu and Mandela rightfully opposed our president’s skull and crossbones adventure in Iraq, it was almost certainly for the wrong reason. Statements like this (see cut and paste below) make me more convinced that anyone that the “international community highly respects”  should have their comments and actions carefully weighed and measured against the Bible by Christians. Please recall, for instance, how the American equivalent of Desmond Tutu, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. popularized syncretism (mixing Christianity with other religions or belief systems) in American religious life by mixing Christianity with Mohandas (Mahatma) Ghandi’s jainism, and more still solidified the notion that Christianity can be (or should be) used to seek earthly ends rather than a heavenly reward. (Do I have a problem with “nonviolent social change”? Well, not so much with the idea of God calling us to be nonviolent, but rather our seeking change through subversive  and aggressive political pressure movements. Please recall that Jesus Christ and his disciples and apostles specifically abstained from political activism, which is a major problem with the “Bible prophecy as resistance literature” eschatological interpretations.)

And as a result, it is now more tolerable to criticize God in this country (and in most others) than King! So, if you don’t believe that “the international community” isn’t co – opting these preachers to suit their own agenda, then you need to look a little more clearly, not only at the preachers on the religious left, but right wing ones like T.D. Jakes and Rick Warren (both of whom have endorsed syncretism themselves: see HERETIC TD JAKES ENDORSES YOGA AND CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER! and  

Archbishop Desmond Tutu recently called on the media to be more careful when choosing words for religious conflict reports. Archbishop Tutu, a South African who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, said on Wednesday that broad understanding of trouble spots was often complicated by the language used to describe the activities of people or religions involved in them. Speaking at a Reuters Newsmaker event in London, Tutu addressed journalists in the audience, calling for tolerance and understanding of religions. “I would hope that you in the media would be passionate about letting people judge for themselves, that you would be careful about some of the language that you do actually use,” he said. “‘Muslim terrorism’ – have you ever read anywhere ‘Christian terrorism’? – as if Islam propagates violence, but you have never spoken about what happened in Northern Ireland as Christian terrorism,” he said. “Fundamentally there is no faith that I know that propagates violence that says it’s a good thing to oppress anybody.” Tutu said he recognised the media could be a force for good but that it had responsibilities. “You have a very powerful media. I know because you helped us very much in our struggle to tell our story. You did it for us and we benefited enormously.”

However, Archbishop Tutu added that understanding different religions required peoples of all faiths to understand different perspectives. “We Christians ought to get off our high horse and learn to be a great deal more humble, when you look at our history, the bloody things that we did in the name of religion,” he said. The gathering also marked the launch of the Tutu Foundation UK, an organisation intended to bring the experience of truth and reconciliation in South Africa to inner city communities in Britain. The foundation will aim to give young people an increased understanding of people from other cultures, working in partnership with bodies such as the YMCA, the Prince’s Trust and Henley Management College. Its work is also intended to reach out to people who, through their work, find themselves in a responsible position where they can help others and affect their quality of life. Original link: here

    I’ve not researched the detail of your content, but I like the format of your chock-full-O’-information blog.

    Your contention about Israel supporting apartheid is wrong and you mode of expressing it is bigoted.

    Moreover when you equate Tutu to Ghandi you forget or never kenw that Ghandi was not friendly to SA Blacks whom he called “Kafirs.” He wanted Blacks separated from Indians and was outraged when the Brits didn’t differentiate between them.

    Try reading Ghandi’s writing and not express shallow views borrowed from an ignorant media.

    Tutu morever is an antisemtic bigot and so are you which is why I am not surprised that you would hold the views that you do.
