Citáty Desmond Tutu
As quoted in New York Times (19 October 1984)
"And God Smiles," sermon preached at All Saints Church, Pasadena, California (6 November 2005)
Kontext: This family has no outsiders. Everyone is an insider. When Jesus said, "I, if I am lifted up, will draw..." Did he say, "I will draw some"? "I will draw some, and tough luck for the others"? He said, "I, if I be lifted up, will draw all." All! All! All! – Black, white, yellow; rich, poor; clever, not so clever; beautiful, not so beautiful. All! All! It is radical. All! Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Bush – all! All! All are to be held in this incredible embrace. Gay, lesbian, so-called "straight;" all! All! All are to be held in the incredible embrace of the love that won’t let us go.
Address at his enthronement as Anglican archbishop of Cape Town (7 September 1986)
