Elton John on Jesus: ‘A compassionate, super-intelligent gay man…’

“…to call Jesus a homosexual is to label Him a sexual deviant.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue

From the Catholic League:

It is being reported that Elton John told Parade magazine that Jesus was gay. “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.”

Catholic League president Bill Donohue issued the following rejoinder today:

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, 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—John’s ignorance or intolerance. In any event, if we thought we could persuade him to issue an apology, we would try. But given his recidivism, we won’t even bother to ask. One thing is clear: someone needs to straighten John out.

  1. Hmmmmmm. I guess ignorance comes in all types of packages…even the Elton John type. How very ignorant to dare assume the nature of Christ to be contrary to what is revealed of Him in scripture.

    But Elton is not likely a proponent of scripture🙂

  2. He was quite clearly taking the piss, the bible says stupid things, so he thought he’d do the same, for the fun of it. He is a genius.
