Sir Elton Says Jesus Was Gay

Jesus was gay.
At least, that’s what Sir Elton John believes, as stated in his recent Parade magazine interview. And the real shame of it is that he said seven things about Jesus, six of which I couldn’t have agreed with more. So let’s focus on the positive. Here’s what he said.
“I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems,” he stated. “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 — you’re as good as dead.”
Think about his assertions. Jesus was “compassionate.” Yes! He was super-intelligent. Wow, I wish more conversations were had about the intelligence of Jesus which has pre-dated every piece of leadership development material, relationship literature and the host of self-help stuff available today.
“He understood human problems.” Oh my, did He. I agree with E.J., that Jesus both modeled and taught a gentle understanding of what goes on at the depth of the human soul.
Even the most unchurched person has probably heard that Jesus forgave his tormenters from the cross, the model for true forgiveness. He didn’t wait for an apology or acknowledgement of wrong-doing before extending forgiveness. And He taught us to love others like the Good Samaritan and forgive our brother “seventy times seven” times.
But, oh, back to that one other comment, that Jesus was “gay.” Like I said, I agree with him on six of the seven. I wish the others would get more headlines. I wish it didn’t take a comment like Jesus’ potential homosexual orientation to sell magazines and increase web traffic. To try to make Jesus “gay” requires altering the material we trust for information about Him, and once you start doing that you could make Him to be just about anything you want. the problem is, we don’t get to know anybody that way. To interpret anyone–alive or historical–according to what suits us is as biased as it is oppresive. He wasn’t just saying Jesus loved or accepted gay people. He’s saying Jesus was gay.
But, like I said, I agree with Sir Elton on six of the seven, and will focus on that!

    Is this how he justifies being gay? Wow, please go back and read the good book Sir Elton.

    No, Elton justifies being gay by asserting his fundamental right to live. Any religion denies that, then it should be discarded for the trash that it is.

    I think many heterosexual Christians are offended by the idea that Jesus shared in the humanity of gay people and was tempted as they are. Heterosexual Christians and Brahmans really aren’t so different. They both need someone to look down on so that they can feel adequate.

    I really thought that Mr. John was a bit more intelligent than that. I have extensively searched the scriptures to see if there any hint of Jeses being “gay”. Nope, it’s just not there…

    How many years of Jesus’ life are not spoken about in the Bible?
    Why have those years been omitted?
    Just something to think about….

  • Tom Schroeder

    Yes, I believe that Jesus was true man and true God. And, if that is the case then he would have had sexual desires – whether it be heterosexual or homosexual. Jesus was the least judgemental – there is nothing in the New Testament in which Jesus refers to gays in any way. He surrounded himself with all types of people – some of whom were looked down upon by society.
    It is God’s place to judge. Those people preaching against gays and lesbians are blinding themselves by the log in their eyes.
    I am gay. I believe God loves me just as much as he loves any other person.

    To me it isn’t beyond the realm of possibility. There is no mention of him as married…custom in that time. No mention of his private life….but he did run around with 12 guys. Seriously, what difference would it make to folks if indeed he was a gay man? Would all the “good” Christians stop being Christian and become some other faith? Would that nullify everything he stood for or all the advice he gave out (according to those who wrote the NT anyhow)? One would hope not.
