Quote Of The Day

| Filed under: Elton John

wenn25753192__opt.jpg

“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.”

- Elton John tells Parade

    wow!



  2. 2

    HMMM….HE BETTER NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE,I THINK A LIGHTNING BOLT MAY FIND HIS ASS…



  3. 3

    STOP trying to shove your gayness in our face mario.



  4. 4

    WOW, Elton.



  5. 5

    Well…Kinda true.



  6. 6

    Elton's a loon and always has been. He sure hasn't read the Gospels



  7. 7

    Just because he wore a dress…doesn't mean he was gay! Jesus Christ!



  8. 8

    Sacriligeous and blaspehmous quote from Mr. John.



  9. 9

    Does Jesus' sexuality really matter? I mean, really?



  10. 10

    omg this smells like EJ is gonna be bitchslapped by the vatican XD



  11. 11

    O LULZ. Can't wait to see the crazy commenters come out for this one!



  12. 12

    love this! it confuses me that…the people who use the Bible and Jesus as excuses of why we shouldn't legalize gay marriage (which, come on- ever heard of "Separation of Church and State"??? don't even get me started..) or say that being gay is wrong make Jesus out to be some cruel, scary man. MY Jesus is all-loving and all-forgiving. He does not JUDGE the people who believe differently. people who think Catholics, Evangelicals, Baptists, Mormons, etc are the ONLY way to believe in Him are ignorant. (just had to get that off my chest haha)



  13. 13

    That's some quote alright. Very brave for him to say. People take their religion seriously and some might see this as sacrilegious.



  14. 14

    funny how every1 wants Jesus to be just like them, if youre black then jesus was black, if youre white then jesus was a blue eyes blond, and if youre gay then jesus was a homo!! So freakingn stupid how the fuck does anyone know whether he was gay, str8t or even real! Idiots



  15. 15

    Big deal. Although the bible thumpers will have a hard time with this. Just believe what you believe and don't worry about anybody else.



  16. 16

    There are compassionate, loving, forgiving, intelligent people who walk among us now, Elton, who happen to be gay, straight, or otherwise.
    There are also Cruel, selfish, assholes that walk among us as well who happen to be gay, straight, or otherwise.

    amen!

    I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:
    *
    1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odour for the Lord - Lev.1: 9. The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
    *
    2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
    *
    3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24.
    *
    The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.
    *
    4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations.
    *
    A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?



  19. 19

    WOW I love him and he's so right!



  20. 20

    5. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death.
    *
    Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
    *
    6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?
    *
    7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?
    *
    8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27.
    How should they die?
    *
    9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
    *
    10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24: 10-16.
    *
    Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev.> 20:14)? I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help.
    *



  21. 21

    I bet the people who would be mad at that quote are the same people who mix clothing fabrics and eat shellfish. hypocrisy, so much fun.



  22. 22

    So, only gay people can be super-intelligent, loving and forgiving? Tell this muthafucka to shut the fuck up.



  23. 23

    he's right.



  24. 24

    Vestigial Traits in Humans
    *
    Ear-wiggling muscles Three small muscles around each ear that are large and important in some mammals, such as dogs, turning the ears toward a source of sound. Few people can wiggle their ears, and none can turn them toward sound.
    *
    Tail Present in human and all vertebrate embryos. In humans, the tail is reduced; most adults only have three to five tiny tail bones and, occasionally, a trace of a tail-extending muscle.
    *
    Appendix Structure which presumably had a digestive function in some of our ancestors, like the cecum of some herbivores. In humans, it varies in length from 5–15 cm, and some people are born without one.
    *
    Wisdom teeth Molars that are often useless and sometimes even trapped in the jawbone. Some people never develop wisdom teeth.



  25. 25

    Definition of Vestigial:
    Relating to a body part that has become small and lost its use because of evolutionary change.

  26. 26

    Ok, now that was just a little bit over the top. If Jesus was anything, he was asexual. Certainly not gay.

    I'm all for people choosing their own lifestyle, but going around saying Jesus was gay is not the way to garner supporters. It's just another way to alienate people.



  27. 27

    Yep, Midle East men are knows to be gay anyway, such a double standard, what a shame.

    Sir Elton John, well said as usual, Thank you



  28. 28

    PS; why is so strange to think that perhaps Jesus was gay? Nothing wrong being gay people.



  29. 29

    The whole story of jesus if fake..Proven is the fact that the story of Jesus is a copy of the story of the Egyption "god" Horus who's story was wrote durring the Predynastic Period…
    Thats about 5500 before Common Era or 5500 BC for the bible nutters.
    *
    Plan facts.. With historic proof! Those damn pyramids and those Hieroglyphics…
    The catholic church acknowledges the similarities between jesus and Horus
    but claim he wasnt a virgin birth.. So the catholic church can read Hieroglyphics better then the experts ?
    *
    Conception:
    Horus: By a virgin.
    Jesus: By a virgin.
    *
    Father:
    Horus: Only begotten son of the God Osiris.
    Jesus: Only begotten son of Yehovah (in the form of the Holy Spirit).
    *
    Mother:
    Horus: Meri.
    Jesus: Miriam (a.k.a. Mary).
    *
    Foster father:
    Horus: Seb, (Jo-Seph).
    Jesus: Joseph.
    *
    Foster father's ancestry:
    Horus: Of royal descent.
    Jesus: Of royal descent.
    *
    Birth location:
    Horus: In a cave.
    Jesus: In a cave or stable.
    *
    Birth heralded by:
    Horus: The star Sirius, the morning star.
    Jesus: An unidentified "star in the East."
    *
    Method of death:
    Horus: By crucifixion.
    Jesus: By crucifixion.
    *
    Accompanied by:
    Horus: Two thieves.
    Jesus: Two thieves.
    *
    These are but a few of the comparisons…

    WHERE DOES HE GET OFF CALLING JESUS GAY?I'M NOT EVEN RELIGIOUS AND THAT DISTURBS ME A LITTLE. STOP TRYING TO TWIST EVERYTHING TO SUIT THE GAY AGENDA. IT DOES NOTHING BUT UPSET PEOPLE AND SETS BACK THE CAUSE.



  31. 31

    Elton needs another scandal. period.



  32. 32

    What a fucking moron.



  33. 33

    Re: Bö!!!SEMICOLON!!!rte Petrarchia – #22 - Exactly. Enough already!



  34. 34

    Uh-oh! Just another thing for the "Christians" to get their panties in a knot over!
    Even if Elton really thought this(I'm assuming it was a sort of sarcasm) he should keep it to himself. Thing's are already shitty for us now.
    Homophobes and bigots don't need a reason to be the way they are,but this just gives them more ammo!



  35. 35

    Re: lovers – Shove it in YOUR face? We get all you breeders shit shoved in OUR faces every day!
    If people could just learn to live and let live,none of this would be a problem!



  36. 36

    This is kind of old news….

    But I love Elton.



  37. 37

    Jesus was gay? Guess it's time to start rewriting that thousands year-old book now.



  38. 38

    Yeah, sure.

    As IF any self-respecting gay man would walk around in that tired, mumu-like caftan . . .



  39. 39

    Re: Aussieone – wow im religious and i don't agree with anything you've said on this but damn you bring up some valid points for the other side and i can respect that, though i disagree

  40. bunna says – reply to this


    40

    i have unsubscribed to this poorly written, poached from other websites, mean-spirited website at least 10 times and they won't stop sending it to my inbox… anyone awake at the switch there?



  41. 41

    im all for gay rights and everything but this comment really pisses me off for some reason i can't picture Jesus being a gay man and it bothers me that it seems that sir john is implying that all gay people are loving and forgiving just like Jesus because as we all know from perez that is sooo not the case…i think he shouldve kept this to himself



  42. 42

    Evangelicals are retarded period. Elton's funny.



  43. 43

    hahaha that could be true.
    It's not like Jesus was trying to have sex with any women.



  44. 44

    There's no historical evidence outside of the Bible to back up the claim that the character Jesus Christ ever existed.

    But if he did, Elton is right. He more than likely would've been a gay man.



  45. 45

    Jesus, gay, interesting…I was told he had a thing for working girls.



  46. 46

    Of course it's true about being a gay woman in the middle east. Not sure about the Jesus part as religion is a scam anyway (a 2000 year old one). It really is sad how women are treated in many countries.



  47. 47

    But jesus is also black, and latino, left handed … the kid in a suburb in chicago, a kid in the slums in brazil. Hes everyone, we're all him. At least that's how I take the statement.



  48. 48

    I think he shows a real understanding of who Jesus probably was - the gay bit is not the issue - and he makes a very empathic comment about gay women in the middle east. An incredibly intelligent comment from Elton.

  49. elo says – reply to this


    49

    Elton must be unaware that things were far worse for gay men back in the Christs time than they are now.



  50. 50

    Try being a straight man in prison!
    Try being a priest and not jerking off when all alone at night!
    Try being a nun without bad acne!
    Try being Whitney Houston staying off drugs and giving a concert in Columbia!
    Try being a gay man and getting a hardon while having a lap dance from Beyonce!



  51. 51

    the Bible say men who have sex with men, will go to hell, so sorry guys, the natural way create by God is Man-Woman, you hole is for evacuate no for filled.



  52. 52

    jesus is god and wasnt ugly



  53. 53

    you may go to hell, elton john



  54. 54

    Jesus was supposed to be a really chill guy. He hung out with a lot of sinners but didn't think less of them. If anything, he forgave them.



  55. 55

    Re: Mickey9661 – yea and do you know why you do? because it's normal! being gay isn't normal. i DON'T HATE gays, my sister has a gay friend and he's pretty cool. i'm pretty tolerate of them; however, i don't like it when they try to make us accept their lifestyle. i still believe it's wrong.



  56. 56

    so if that is true? why Jesus never say something? don't Ask don't tell?



  57. 57

    I agreed with everything except for the calling Jesus a super-intelligent gay man. That just is not called for considering the Bible specifically speaks up against homosexuality.



  58. 58

    Re: gemma0766 – I think you make a good point. Because I have met people that are gay and they can be just as big of a tool or ass as the next person. A person's homosexuality has nothing to do with them as a person. Being gay only represent a small portion of them. How they are as a person and how they treat people is what matters.

  59. naima says – reply to this


    59

    Elton is entitled to his opinions like everyone else so it doesnt really bother me, but i am sure his comments pissed off the super Religulous who claim the Lord, but secretely worship Satan behind closed doors…



  60. 60

    Re: lovers – i totally agree with u



  61. 61

    The bible is only a story, and people will take from it what they like..



  62. 62

    Re: miself – And I bet you are wearing mixed clothing fabrics as you typed that.



  63. 63

    Geez-azz got gang-banged on the dining room table by 12 men after too much wine!



  64. 64

    What a blithering imbecile - he must be back on drugs!



  65. 65

    perez is gay and stupid (thats it with the only gays are smart and loving)
    why do they have to make this a gay thing?…even Jesus is gay now
    i think his trying to make a point but i dont see it



  66. 66

    he is a dumb old queen. why do people take him seriously he is good at piano and singing why do we think his opinion means fuck?



  67. 67

    bahaha



  68. 68

    RIGHT ON! Life is that which you make it, and as you believe you shall live. so live it people!



  69. 69

    What a bloated narcissistic homo with a god complex…you too Elton

  70. B2R says – reply to this


    70

    Is Elton a Scientologist? That is what they believe!



  71. 71

    I hate homophobes and all , but this is a bit much.



  72. 72

    IF THERE IS ONE THING I CAN'T STAND IT'S GAY PEOPLE TRYING TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE GAY.
    *
    GAY PEOPLE ARE A MINORITY. A MINORITY. A MINORITY. ACCEPT IT.
    *
    IT IS NOT "NORMAL" TO BE GAY . THE NORM IS DEFINED AS THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION AND THE MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION IS HETEROSEXUAL.
    *
    Perhaps homosexuals would experience less hatred if people like Elton and fucking Perez didn't go around trying to make everyone else gay. The fact is that most straight men are DISGUSTED by gay men. Perez knows this which is why he tried to call that Black Eyed Pea gay and was punched in the face for it. Elton is a fucking idiot saying what he is saying.



  73. 73

    Elton John has a habit of saying stupid things before thinking. I remember when he cried out that Jennifer Hudson was voted off of Amer. Idol because she was a Black woman. He went to all the media about it and then Fantasia, a Black woman won that year.



  74. 74

    Jesus wasn't sexual so you don't know which sex he was attracted to. He had more spiritual things on his mind and a mission.



  75. 75

    Re: alemeh2 – - its not easy to be gay in the south of the state either… always trying to put down others… look at yourselves first… and lets face it jesus was never gay… and if gay men understood human problems then why cant elton john understand the problems in the middle east is because of the ignorance of the west???



  76. 76

    Do all gay people think everybody's gay?



  77. 77

    Elton is so misguided and misinformed. How could he make such an outrageous and inaccurate comment?? He needs prayer.



  78. 78

    Re: Mabel Leaf – LOL LOL



  79. 79

    He can say Jesus is a gay man if that's his opinion. He's just prob trying to be controversial and get some press. The Old Queen. I just hope he realizes God is a Woman.

    82

    What a blasphemous thing to say Elton John!!! How dare he talk that way about Jesus….the Son of God..I am so offended that he could say such a thing and shocked that someone could believe that to be true.



  83. 83

    LMAO! Yeah, sure!



  84. 84

    That is disgusting.

  86. 86

    I wouldn't say Jesus is gay BUT I definately would say he's the type to chill with them. He never judged anyone and the fact that people have the gall to say "jesus hates _______" are stupid.

    He hates no one. He's someone out of the bible I would totally love to just hang out with because of his attitude towards people in general.



  87. 87

    What part of the Bible has Jesus taking it up the ass?



  88. 88

    Re: kadm1 – Superstitious bullshit, come into the real world. Son of god? No, son of a bitch.

  89. Wrenn says – reply to this


    89

    Why doesn't he do like most smart gays and commit suicide????



  90. 90

    I think Elton John is right. Jesus was probably gay. He lived to 33, yet never married, at a time when men married soon after puberty. Was Paul his lover? Is that why Paul immediately fled to Greece, where homosexuality was common, while married to a woman? Is that why Judas ultimately betrayed Jesus, because he was gay? Are the fundamentalists' heads going to explode when they get to heaven, and find out?



  91. 91

    I am a Catholic and don't discriminate gays. This quote was a low blow to my faith. Jesus Christ was not gay and there is nothing in the scriptures that support that claim. Why would God the father send down a gay son of God when he was so against homosexuality in the Old Testament.



  92. 92

    Re: Aussieone – You are bizarre. Americans don't go around trying to convince everyone that important historical figures are American. Neither do caucasians. Elton is stating that Jesus was homosexual when there is abosolutely no basis for it. The reason Elton does it is b/c he is trying to legitimize homosexuality and make it more "normal". It isn't. Homosexuality is an aberration. It's an aberration that exists in every animal species, but it's an aberration nonetheless.
    *
    I don't know if you understand what I wrote above b/c judging from your posts I think you need to get off the drugs. You poor sad shit.



  93. 93

    Bahahahahahahhaaa!!!!!



  94. 94

    he will surely die for this one.



  95. 95

    Re: Lydia08 – you can start reading the Bible…



  96. 96

    The fact that Elton John believes that Jesus actually existed is what blows me out of the water. I thought he was more evolved than that.

    Fairy tales are for little kids, not grown ups.
