Jesus would have been a supporter of gay marriage, Sir Elton John has claimed.
The musician, who plans to marry his civil partner David Furnish next year in a “very quiet” ceremony, said that rules preventing gay clergy from marrying and requiring Catholic priests to be celibate were “old and stupid things”.
He told Sky News’ Murnaghan program: “The church hierarchy, the traditionalists, might be up in arms about it but times have changed.
“If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was, saying this could not happen.
“He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that is what the church should be about.”
Sir Elton said he believed the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was “doing a good job” and Pope Francis was “wonderful”.
“He’s excited me so much by his humanity,” the singer said of the Pope.
So Elton knows better than the founder of the Christian doctrine himself! Who would have thought? Elton obviously has never read Leviticus 20:13 which clearly states the Christian law regarding homosexuality – once again:
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
There’s no “wiggle room” with a verse like this. You can’t even take it out of context really. It is 100% clear and easy to understand and this is no doubt why there aren’t even any attempts to subvert its meaning in the Bible Hub commentary, unlike how the “professional Bible commentators” usually distort the meanings of all the other verses.
Then again, what would I know? Elton is a celebrity, and if a celebrity says something about someone then it must be true, especially when it’s on the T.V!!! Elton’s word about what he thinks the Church should be about or what Jesus Christ would have supported clearly holds more water than a direct Biblical quotation!
How could we all be so silly. The Jewish controlled mass-media never deceives or lies to us after all……
