Sir Elton John Labels Jesus a Gay Man

During an interview with an American magazine this weekend, Sir Elton John has risked the ire of the Bible belt after a throw away remark describing Jesus as a “Super Intelligent Gay Man.”

During a discussion with a journalist from Parade magazine on the experience of lesbians in the Middle East, he made a comment saying, ‘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 and you are as good as dead.”
 
Sir Elton continued by discussing his own gay relationships, invariably having had affairs with jobless young men and his civil partnership with David Furnish in 2005.  He went on to say, “I’d always choose someone younger as I wanted to smother them with love. I’d take them around the world, try to educate them. One after another, they got a Cartier watch, a Versace outfit, maybe a sports car.  They didn’t have jobs. They were reliant on me. I did this repeatedly.  In six months, they were bored and hated my guts because I’d taken their lives and self worth away. I hadn’t intended to.”
 
How America will react to the Sir Elton’s thought’s, remains to be seen. An interview in 1966, John Lennon told Maureen Cleave of the Evening Standard that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. This comment was picked up by the American magazine Datebook leading religious groups to burn Beatles records in protest. Lennon was forced to make an apology.
