Saturday Night's Alright For Being An Ass

sir-elton-john.jpg

Doesn't this Keebler Elf have some public restrooms to cruise?

From thesun.co.uk:

JESUS was GAY - according to the gospel of SIR ELTON JOHN.

The singer makes his controversial claim about the Lord in a new US interview that will enrage America's bible belt.

Elton, 62, declares as he pours out his heart to a magazine: "I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems."

He adds: "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 - you're as good as dead."


Is he nuts?

This will unleash a torrent of riots, car fires, and calls for the beheading of Sir Elton.

Oh, wait...

James H:

I did a little Googling on this earlier today. Apparently, one scholar located a couple passages in the Gospels that he said proved Jesus was gay. However, other scholars did not take this scholar's work seriously.

Probably the best quote on the matter I saw was to the effect of "We don't know. The Gospels are silent on the issue." Although I'm not sure if that question is directed specifically toward this question or toward the broader question of whether Jesus was married, celibate, or what have you.

Who can say with any certainty whether Jesus was gay or not? Certainly not Elton John.

It is the Season of Lent. Look for about 40 days of attacks and slander on Christianity and Jesus peaking about a week before Easter. There will be another "chocolate Jesus" or something stupid like that.

Well, I'll give it a shot. The Old Testament condemns homosexuality. Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi, and thus, taught the Old Testament as the word of God. The Disciples were devout Jews, who saw the Old Testament as the word of God.

Granted, Jesus preached certain change from the Old Testament, but those changes were pretty specific (including the covenant with God). If he were cancelling the ban on homosexuality, it seems like he would have mentioned it, as he (and the Apostles) did the other, limited changes from the Old Testament. For the most part, Jesus told us to keep the rules of the Old Testament.

Whenever the words of BryanD appear on these pages, it's as though he stepped in some crap and dragged the stink all over. He never notices and remains a lurid public disgrace.

The rocket man must be experiencing money problems. The need to stir controversy to sell some records or downloads or whatever the hell they do today. Let me guess, next week he's announcing tour dates!
