    Pome Singer Sir Elton John, has dubbed Jesus a Super intelligent gay man!

    Sir Elton (or should that be Lady) made the throwaway comment during an interview with an American magazine while talking about lesbians trying to survive in the Middle East.

    "I think Jesus was a compassionate supper intelligent gay man who understood human problems" he told Parade.

    "On the cross he forgave us 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 lesbian in the middle East you are as good as dead." Sunshine the lesbians are not being treated any diffrent to their homosexual brothers, now are they.

    America being such a religious county I'm sure his comments will create storm in the US. Where religus groups burned Beatles records in 1966 after John Lennon claimed the group was more popular than Jesus.

    John Mate It's imposible to speculate about Jesus's sexuality. Albeit I do agree with a call for more compassion.

    But Sir Elton John, has not always been seen as compassionate either. he's been seen as cruel, vindictive and spitful, certainly but not only during his drug taking past, and messy relationships with men.

    But Jesus may well of also been a Socialist too, and some of the people in the world today who hate him the most are gay left wing socialists.

    But I can hear many saying Sir Elton John is doing nothing but pushing his own political agenda, and justifying his own lifestyle.

    Elton John is not the first to make the claim....

    Here is a link to a site that discusses both sides of the issue...

    Yes I know this. There was some guy down here in Oz a few years ago who got a government grant, and he did a Theseus on Jesus being a homosexual, because of all the merry men he hung around, and the priesthood is a men's club, that has attracted many homosexuals.

    Outrage was too hit the news not only for his outcome, but it was funded by a government grant.

    If the government isn't in the business of actively promoting religion, then it isn't the government's place to defend religion either by suppressing those citizens who would demote it (actively by prosecuting them, or passively by- for example- discriminating against them when it comes to academic grants). And then, calling the guy's thesis of 'gay Jesus' a demotion of religion only holds up if we presuppose another assumption-- namely, that being gay is something bad.

    If there's nothing bad about being gay, then there's nothing bad about 'gay Jesus.' And if his modern-day adherents were to shit themselves over the suggestion that he was, that's their bigoted prejudice (which should never be pandered to by serious academics whose business is exploring the truth).

    Unfortunately our culture is so obtusely deferential to religion that if for instance an archaeologist discovered incontrovertible proof that Jesus was real and was homosexual-- I don't just mean evidence that could be construed as support for a theory, I mean concrete factual proof of an objective historical truth-- then there'd probably still be 'consideration' for the outrage of offended idiots who don't want it to be true. If you were to dig up an unburnable, untearable papyrus scroll written in blood that reads "I, Jesus of Nazarth, loved having bumsex with my male disciples because I was a big gay homosexual, and that's okay with my dad. P.S., you will now immediately develop stigmata as proof that I'm up in Heaven watching you read this scroll," and everyone who read it immediately developed gushing holes in their hands and feet, there would still be bible-thumpers who would scream that it wasn't true because they "know" Jesus couldn't have been a homo. And people would still listen to them and take them seriously and be 'sensitive' to their stubborn, stupid, petulant refusal to accept reality. Fuck, if they found that I might even convert and take part in the Christian 'civil war' between the scroll believers and the scroll deniers.

    Joking aside, the ugly, horrible influence of religion on society is that it carves out this untouchable space for faith-based beliefs, no matter how irrational or destructive or at-odds with truth & reality as they may be. Someone who says that the sky is made of shit-marmalade could be (maybe should be) committed to a mental institution, but if they say that's what their religion tells them... well then, ohhh, we have to handle that exact same ridiculous delusion with kid-gloves, because you're not allowed to scrutinize or challenge anything that any lunatic says has god's fingerprints on it. Hell, they'd probably have a bunch of other religious crazies rise up to demand that the shit-marmalade-sky be given equal time in astronomy classes at state-funded universities. It's one of the great insanities of our civilization.

    Well, apparently, it does to some. I never got this celebrity thing, and I don't think I ever will. Some people just love following celebrity, for what ever reason.

    The world would be a far better place, if those celebrity followers, lived their own lives, and let the celebrities live theirs.
