Christian groups have expressed their outrage after Elton John described Jesus as a ‘super-intelligent gay man’
The singer was reported to have said in an Interview with Us magazine, Parade, “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems…Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don't know what makes people so cruel.” He went on to say, “Try being a gay woman in the Middle East – you’re as good as dead.”
Christian rights groups are said to be outraged by the stars outlandish claims. According to the Christian Messenger, Dr. Gary Cass of the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission, said
“The Bible declares that the mind of person given over to homosexuality becomes depraved or spiritually worthless.
This was on full display when pop star Elton John declared, ‘I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.’ This is an outrage and the height of blasphemy and an offence to all those who are Christians,”
He added: “Sodomy is a pernicious sin and to assert Jesus was a homosexual is to allege he engaged in a most wicked and perverted activity. It denies the Christian doctrine of the sinless life of Christ who died as an innocent man on behalf of the guilty human race. If Jesus was a sodomite then there is no atonement or forgiveness of sin,” said Cass.
Dr Cass ended his argument demanding that Elton owes Christians an apology for his words “To assert that Jesus was a homosexual only serves to confirm the twisted and depraved mind of Elton John...This is an obvious case of someone projecting their own corrupt lifestyle onto Christ in an effort to justify their own unrepentant buggery. Elton John owes all Christians an apology.”
