Did Jesus Play for the Other Team? Elton John Thinks So

Was Jesus gay? According to Elton John…Yes!

In this week’s Parade magazine, Elton John shares his thoughts on Christianity, and yes they’ve caused a bit of an uproar :)

“I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. 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.”

It should be interesting to see how this plays out, and if there’s really any backlash. I think most religious organizations have learned that ignoring this kind of hot button stuff is the best policy, otherwise by condemning it you end up creating a snowball effect. But it’s not like the Catholic Church has been quick to learn from its mistakes.

Who would of thought you’d get in hot water by calling the main religious figure of 2 billion people gay… not that there’s anything wrong with that.

FULL INTERVIEW IN PARADE

Let me know what you think – I’m sure some of you have strong feelings about this (one way or the other – LOL).

The man is just ignorant and should stick to music.

Jill Giordani February 19, 2010 at 1:56 pm

Tracy, not everyone is quite so upset by this. He’s entitled to his opinion. He may even be right.

Jesus was quite gifted it seems therefore either he was gay or a woman!

Haydn March 18, 2011 at 9:42 pm

I think Jesus was just BEYOND sexuality, any kind of sexuality, not because sex is bad or anything but because He simply had better, more important things to do with His short time on Earth.
