Inclusive means: not some, but all, all, all, all, all

I just chanced upon a terrific quote by Desmond Tutu with which he commented on the appointment of the first openly gay bishop in the Anglican church. It is applicable to many other spheres, too:

I am deeply saddened at a time when we’ve got such huge problems … that we should invest so much time and energy in this issue… I think God is weeping. […]

Jesus did not say, ‘I if I be lifted up I will draw some’.

Jesus said, ‘If I be lifted up I will draw all, all, all, all, all.

Black, white, yellow, rich, poor, clever, not so clever, beautiful, not so beautiful.

It’s one of the most radical things. All, all, all, all, all, all, all, all.

All belong. Gay, lesbian, so-called straight.

All, all are meant to be held in this incredible embrace that will not let us go.

All.
