RIP: Bishop Desmond Tutu

Desmond Tutu, who died on Sunday, was remembered as a "true humanitarian" committed to racial equality in his home country of South Africa and abroad.

Tributes from around the world flooded in as news that Tutu, once a leader of the anti-apartheid movement and "chief pastor" to a nation in transition, had died in Cape Town. He was 90.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa shared two photos of Tutu and himself on Twitter and said Tutu's passing was "another chapter of bereavement in our nation’s farewell to a generation of outstanding South Africans who have bequeathed us a liberated South Africa."

Sorry, there are no spirits, Desmond is in a holding pattern until the new world. I agree with Prince on that. Christ has to remake the earth. We are in a fallin state.
