Quoted: Elton John thinks Jesus was a 'super-intelligent gay man'

"I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems."

-- Elton John, in the upcoming issue of Parade, shares his religious views during a wide-ranging interview. Write him, not us.

Sounds completely plausible to me. Jesus had a lot of great things to say. Too bad his followers seldom bother to listen.

There is some evidence for John's assertion. There are many more sources on the web -- just google "morton Smith" It's a great literary detective story.

Elton. Dont make statements regarding things you have no knowledge of. Your assertion that Jesus was gay is simply an attempt to use a symbol of deity for the Christian world to justify and validate "your" lifestyle choice. Pure nonsense.

You all are missing the point. Elton John is implying that HE IS JESUS!!!! "And they knew him in the hurriedly rewritten singing of 'Candle in the Wind'."

The gays say he was gay, the blacks say he was black, inquisition Catholics said he wants them to torture people, the protestants said he wants them to burn old women alive because they love their cat, mafia killers kneel to his statue, a redneck church tells servicemen's widows He killed their husbands because being gay is legal, the Arabs call him a "prophet" while building an atomic bomb to murder millions, the white trash says he wants them to kill Jews, their misters say he wants them to vote republican, the republicans are rewriting the bible because what he said was too "Liberal" and everyone, everywhere ignores what he died for and does just exactly what the hell they want to.

For 2,000 years, men have done everything except act the way Christ did: with compassion for everyone without caring what "group" they belong to.

Humans make me sick! It's enough to make you abandon so-called "humanity" and go live in a cave.

When is the "Jesus was Gay" song being released?

Don't forget the washboard abs...

This merits a review of the details about this mythical character. He was into feet, befriended sex workers, and was surrounded by twelve men. Sounds fairly simple to figure out.

I don't remember reading anything in Scripture about Jesus hanging around the Roman baths....

This maricas always trying to justify their disgusting behavior.

"Write him, not us."

That's funny. Why would the WP print such garbage, if they did not expect negative comments as a result?

As for Elton John, has his career dried up and this is now the only way he can get attention? Wait till EJ starts pulling all of the circus-freak Michael Jackson attention-getting tricks.

Elton needs to read his Bible.

I thought Jesus's girlfriend was Mary Magdalene, that she was not a prostitute, but the boys in the band were JEALOUS of her so slandered her good name.

Wait, Jesus = John Lennon; Mary Magdalene = Yoko??

By God, I've figured it all out!

Elton's career has washed up, so he has to play the media game and say something outrageous that will purposely infuriate 80% of the Western World so he can, well, get printed in the Wash Post, and the Times of London, and be relevant again, maybe.

What a loser. His comment has nothing to do with Christ, and everything to do with the sorry state of his own career and desperation.

Why many "celebrities", from Holywood to London, often say stupid things about the symbol of deity for the two billion christians?? To seek publicity? Who encourages them to do that?? Holywood's Mogols? The media?

Jesus was gay.....hmmmmm....his close relationship with the 12 Apostles all makes sense now.

Elton John is a stupid, washed up, no talent, c0ck sucking fagg0t.

This disgusting "ole queen" should just go away and stop putting forth his perverted ideas. His lifestyle is unnatural and deep in his heart, he knows this to be true.

Good thing Jesus was crucified then; otherwise, he would have died of AIDS a few years later.
