In a recent interview, Elton John told Parade magazine that Jesus was gay. “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.”
When we heard about this comment, we wasted no time in firing back at Sir Elton.
Jesus was certainly compassionate, but to say He was “super-intelligent” is to compare the Son of God to a successful game-show contestant. More seriously, we said, “to call Jesus a homosexual is to label Him a sexual deviant.” But what else would we expect from a man who previously said, “From my point of view, I would ban religion completely.”
We’re not sure what’s worse—the ignorance or intolerance of Elton John. In any event, if we thought we could persuade him to issue an apology, we would try. But given his recidivism, we didn’t even bother to ask.
However, one thing is clear: someone needs to straighten John out.
