Elton John: Jesus Was A Compassionate, Super-intelligent Gay Man
`I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems,` John said. `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.`" - Elton John
In a recent interview Elton John said that fame attracts lunatics, and that he`s so concerned about his safety that he`s hired a bodyguard.
If the ageing rocker is so concerned about his safety, why on Earth did he make this controversial statement that may incite an unhinged fundamentalist Christian to kill him?
Fundamentalists consider homosexuality an abomination, and Elton shouldn`t goad evangelical Christians by voicing his uniformed opinion that Jesus was gay.
Elton seems to be implying that Jesus was gay because he was compassionate, intelligent and understood human problems. As if most heterosexuals don`t possess these virtues.
We shouldn`t focus on Jesus Christ`s sexuality, we should strive to follow his example of humility, compassion, and empathy for our fellow human beings.
