The Dalai Lama draped a silk scarf around the archbishop's neck and presented him with a Tibetan butter lamp: the Light of Truth Award from the International Campaign for Tibet.

In his speech, Archbishop Tutu paid tribute to his friend.

"I give great thanks to God that he has created a Dalai Lama," he said. "Do you really think, as some have argued, that God will be saying: 'You know, that guy, the Dalai Lama, is not bad. What a pity he's not a Christian'?"

A preacher with the timing of a stand-up comic, the archbishop continued: "I don't think that is the case - because, you see, God is not a Christian."

-from here.

Amen, Archbishop Tutu! Amen.

I'm an open-minded Christian. TOTALLY different.

I was at a conference with some UU's. Most of them were really cool and had senses of humor, others didn't. One was offended by many things, and was very close-minded about anything that wasn't her version of open-minded.
