CaterpillarGirl 5 years down to his level= in eltons case...means someone who is self centered, and thinks everyone should be like them, in order for them to relate to whatever it is they are commenting on it had nothing to do with his sexual orienation but like always you gals expect the worse. Yogaforlife 5 years fish, haha, that would be funny. Could explain the lack of women in his life. fishmeister23 5 years Considering how many people who condemn homosexuality use "Gods word" to back up their bigoted beliefs, I think it would be the funniest thing ever if Jesus really was gay. Krisshart, I will be praying for you to learn to spell and punctuate properly. postmodernsleaze 5 years Jesus was a punk rocker. KrissHart 5 years I will be praying for him and hes a funny guy cuz if GOD'S word speaks against that then him being jesus [gods son] wouldnt be right nd im pretty sure we wouldnt have christianity at all. And to tammyo yes there is a jesus and theres no one like him and to others no he didnt mess with mary m. lmbo PiNkY-PiNk 5 years i don't like him at all, but it has nothing to do with him being gay. i don't like his arrogant behavior and little bitch fits (his public fight with madonna has been very well documented). and i don't care if he is a knight or extremely wealthy and successful, he's an asshole and he can't walk around saying whatever the hell he wants. if this was john mayer saying this many of you would be calling him a douche and saying he was just trying to get attention. it might be BECAUSE he's gay that he gets a free pass from alot of people. Lyv 5 years Haha. I think that's precisely what she meant, running. ;z imLissy 5 years Jesus' sexual orientation doesn't really matter. Calling him gay is like calling him a lefty or something. It's not relevant unless you have the facts to back it up. Then you have a nice little tidbit for cocktail parties! Hello890 5 years Was he black? Was he white? Was he gay? straight? WHO CARES?! Doesn't Jesus teach to love unconditionally anyway? I'm more ashamed for people who couldn't accept something like this (whether it was true or not), than for Sir Elton. runningesq 5 years and CG, "down to his level" - I interpret that to mean that being gay is somehow 'less' than being straight ? runningesq 5 years Maybe he was gay. Did any of you know Jesus personally? CaterpillarGirl 5 years Its just his sorry attempt to bring Jesus down to his level. Jesus's word had nothing to do with his sexuality and to assume that he was a homosexual without any proof either way is pathetic attention grabbing, typical of Elton. Soniabonya 5 years Sir Elton, you are a funny man. Maybe he swung both ways. Hello Mary Magdalene. :) TammyO 5 years The more important question about Jesus is Was he really the son of God? Yogaforlife 5 years I love Sir Elton John. Especially when I saw him in concert in Greenville, SC. Although I could have done without the baptists protesting him on the streets. Camarogirl67 5 years It's a little humorous that it upsets Christians so much. Jesus was gay? Omg! The worst insult ever! SKG, I think some gay men get upset that some celebs closet themselves because their secrecy supposes it's something to be ashamed of (politics of Hollywood aside), and some feel they're getting the benefit of a straight-seeming life but have their fun on the side, meanwhile not standing up for the rights of their peers. Or something. KadBunny 5 years Oh dear. PinkNC 5 years If there was a Jesus then I would have to say that he would NOT be gay. I like Elton, but come on, really. He could have kepted that one to himself. mamasitamalita 5 years BettyWayne & SKG, kudos and well said Bettye-Wayne 5 years Sorry to nitpick, but... it's SIR Elton John, not plain old Elton John. He's a knight and he's insanely wealthy. He can say whatever the hell he wants. From the BBC article: "A spokesman for the Church of England said: "Sir Elton's reflection that Jesus calls us all to love and forgive is one shared by all Christians." "But insights into aspects of the historic person of Jesus are perhaps best left to the academics," he added." chillchic 5 years I respect homosexuals but Elton John obviously doesn't respect Christians to spew that kind of garbage. I am ashamed for him.
