Morally Indefensible: Tutu Refuses to Share Platform with Blair

by Abby Zimet

Ever a man of conscience, Nobel laureate, anti-apartheid icon and retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu has withdrawn from a leadership summit in South Africa to protest the presence of former prime minister Tony Blair, whose support for the Iraq War Tutu condemned as "morally indefensible." Meanwhile, calls are mounting for the arrest of Blair for crimes against humanity when he appears.

"The Discovery Invest Leadership Summit has leadership as its theme. Morality and leadership are indivisible. In this context, it would be inappropriate and untenable for the Archbishop to share a platform with Mr Blair."

1. Tutu is a man of intergrity, unlike Tony B-Liar.

2. All Iraq War criminals should be publically shunned and prosecuted

Good for Bishop Tutu!
