Archbishop Desmond Tutu: God is weeping over President Trump’s decision on Jerusalem
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has condemned President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
In a statement on Friday, he said:
‘Those who claim divine rights for themselves to physical property on earth are false prophets.
God does not discriminate between Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Taos, atheists – or any other people.
When God’s children make mistakes God does not directly intervene because God has pre-programmed us with the precious gifts to love, to reason and to discern right from wrong. It is our responsibility to use these gifts.
God is weeping over President Donald Trump’s inflammatory and discriminatory recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It is our responsibility to tell Mr Trump that he is wrong.’
