"I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this... I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place."

-- Anglican Archbishop (and Nobel Peace Prize winner) Desmond Tutu, speaking in Cape Town on Friday at the launch of Free & Equal, the landmark United Nations global outreach campaign for LGBT equality.
