Desmond Tutu's daughter loses S. African church licence after gay marriage. Reverend Mpho Tutu-van Furth, who is in her fifties, told AFP that according to the canon law of the Anglican Church in South Africa, marriage is a union between a man and a woman so she decided to quit.
Tutu Van-Furth was first ordained as a minister in and has campaigned against homophobia and racism since she was a teenager. I decided that I would give it to him rather than have him take it. Tutu, who won the Nobel peace prize for his work as an anti-apartheid activist, is an avid supporter of same-sex marriage and has campaigned against homophobia.
He was the Bishop of Johannesburg from to and then the Archbishop of Cape Town from toin both cases being the first black African to hold the position. Theologically, he sought to fuse ideas from black theology with African theology ; politically, he identifies as a socialist. Entering adulthood, he trained as a teacher and married Nomalizo Leah Tutuwith whom he had several children. Inhe was ordained as an Anglican priest and in moved to the United Kingdom to study theology at King's College London.
Anderson says that religious leaders like Archbishop Tutu believe in a Jesus Christ that is a figment of their imagination. People like Desmond Tutu can go parading around and talk about their pro-homosexual beliefs, but they did not get that from the Bible. The religious leaders you are talking about are a bunch of perverts themselves, like that Desmond Tutu who goes around in a pink dress.
Mpho Tutu-van Furth — whose father, Desmond Tutu, won the Nobel peace prize in for the struggle against apartheid in South Africa — said the move had been forced on her following her wedding to a Dutch academic. Although South Africa legalised same-sex marriage inthe Anglican church in the country teaches that marriage is a union of a man and woman. The church will decide this year whether to adopt guidelines drawn up by its bishops on welcoming members who have entered into same-sex civil marriages.
Tutu van Furth followed her father into a life in the Anglican church, but had to leave following her same-sex marriage. While same-sex marriage was legalised in South Africa inthe South African Anglican church does not recognise same-sex marriage. I was surprised by how much it hurt.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu's daughter has given up her licence to serve as an Anglican priest after marrying a woman. Rev Canon Mpho Tutu-Van Furth faced disciplinary measures from her bishop, who is personally sympathetic but constrained by Church law. The bishop of the diocese was instructed to revoke my licence. I decided that I would give it to him rather than have him take it.
On the other hand, Pope Francis, during an impromptu press conference following his first international trip since becoming pope, signaled a more gentle approach to LGBT persons when asked. The religiously-rooted, prophetic vision of love, hospitality and transformative justice for ALL people is beginning to bubble up all over. For gay people to hear a Pope speak of us as people of faith and goodwill who should not be marginalized in society, rather than as threats to civilization, is a great shift.
