Really? Of all the things you could be angry about?

7 Apr

Desmond Tutu is speaking at commencement this May. He’s a Nobel laureate. That’s a big deal. A lot cooler than having our president speak.

And now people are saying we should uninvite him.

Of all the things you could be mad about, you’re throwing a fit because a man who fought apartheid and is a symbol of social justice supports birth control??? (and first of all, it’s Africa, the issues are WAY different)

I hope GU is smart enough to recognize the value of this speaker. Even if some of his viewpoints don’t toe the Catholic line, he is still an exceptional person to send our graduates into the real world. 

If you agree, please sign the we-love-tutu petition here.
