Elton Under Fire For 'Jesus Is Gay' Remark

Subscribe to Elton John alerts

Elton John has sparked a storm of internet protest after suggesting Jesus Christ was gay in a new online interview.
The Rocket Man has been targeted by outraged bloggers and 'tweeters' over comments he made to Parade.com as part of an article which will appear in the website's sister weekend magazine.
In the article, the Brit says, "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."
His remarks have led to a wave of attacks from online critics.
One writes, "John is now the authority on Christ? Jesus Christ was as gay as Saddam Hussein is alive."
And blogger rhardin tells Fox News' 411 blog, "I will never listen to this man's music again. How dare he speak of my Lord in such a disgraceful way. He should not speak on things he knows nothing about. I hope and pray that all Christians will take a stand on this one. Elton John's lifestyle speaks for itself."
Meanwhile, bobj72 tells TheDailyBeast.com, "While I have had some appreciation for Elton John's music... he could not be further from the truth on this matter regarding Jesus. It is clearly stated in Leviticus 18:22, 23; that Christ sees homosexuality as an abomination."
