In a recent interview in Parade magazine, Elton John had this comment;
"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. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East -- you're as good as dead."
Is there really anything we can say about such a ludicrous statement?
We could try by pointing out that there is absolutely no evidence to back up what Elton John believes about Jesus being homosexual. I doubt, however, that he uses logic, common sense or evidence to make his decisions.
As Catholic League president Bill Donohue points out in his short statement regarding Elton John's comments, it would be pointless to ask for an apology.
The Parade magazine piece also carries a link to The top 10 most outrageous photos of Elton John. Believe me, it wasn't easy picking the number one outrageous photo to accompany this blog post, but I think this one would rank high on anyone's list.
