“JESUS was GAY – according to the gospel of SIR ELTON JOHN. The singer makes his controversial claim about the Lord in a new US interview that will enrage America’s bible belt.
“Elton, 62, declares as he pours out his heart to a magazine: ‘I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.’
“He adds: ‘Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don’t know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East – you’re as good as dead.’”
I have nothing but contempt for a guy like this and would no more buy his music or promote his career than I would that of a pornographer. How do “guys” like this become cultural heroes and icons?
