Gay Jesus

Postby New Sociopia » Fri Feb 19, 2010 10:45 am

Elton John has said in an interview that Jesus was gay.
I'm sorry. I read the story and thought 'That is SO NSG.'
What do you make of it? Lifelong singleness, non-violent, way with words, very religious... Sounds like a lot of repressed gay men. :P
Though being called a sexual deviant for being gay is something I'm fairly used to, but the Catholic organisation whose spokesperson said:
More seriously, to call Jesus a homosexual is to label him a sexual deviant.

Surely doesn't know much about the Bible. You can't be a sexual deviant if you never had sex, can you? :P

So yeah. Thanks to Elton John, an epochal moment has arrived. Worlds collide. Religion and sexuality, arguably our top topics, intermingle.

Was Jesus gay?

No, since he would have repealed all the stuff against homosexuals and other such deviants in the Torah.

Well yeah, he slept with an underage boy in a tent.
It's in one of the gospels removed from the bible though.

The Mosaic Law was 'repealed' (so to speak) by Jesus wasn't it? And I don't think he personally said anything against homosexuality. If I recall correctly the condemnations of homosexuality in the New Testament were in the letters to the various congregations written by some of the diciples. I'll go factcheck.

More like they clashed with the politics of the time.

Jesus (if he was real. Whole other debate) was probably Bi. If you read the Gnostic Bibles, he is the Everyman for society, so he loves all regardless.

Clearly a gorgeous Bi :p

The Bible speaks strongly against being gay. If someone says Jesus the Son of God is gay, they haven't read the Bible well. God spoke strongly against it. Jesus is God. So he ain't gay. I have a feeling people are saying he's gay because it's funny to them. >.>

There is actually a group of gay evangelicals in New York who published a pamphlet entitled "What Jesus had to say about homosexuality."
The pamphlet is blank. :)

Not all Christians believe Jesus to be God. Some of them come to the much more logical conclusion that he's the son of God. :P
Is it not written...? ;)
