SR: Tutu Invite Right Move For Gonzaga

Archbishop Desmond Tutu (pictured in 2006 AP photo) will be honored with a Doctor of Laws degree next month at Gonzaga University. Gonzaga University will be honored as well. Yet petititoners led by a local attorney claim that Tutu, the 1984 winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, is unworthy of recognition from an institution that should uphold the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. Tutu supports same-sex marriage, contraception and abortion rights for women. Clearly, those positions are outside the church’s teachings, although not necessarily those of his Anglican faith. The Anglican Church splits on some of these issues. But doctrines evolve. Perspectives change/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Would you like to hear Archbishop Desmond Tutu's commencement speech at Gonzaga?
