Elton John Said Whaaaaaat?

Controversial quotes are great if you want to be remembered. Elton John must desire a level of infamy or he may have been high when he gave this interview recently. Here is the actual quote that I predict will only further his gay legend of legendary gayness:
“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.”
Calling Jesus homosexual? Is that offensive? Faces of death thinks that is in poor taste. What, John Mayer's interview in Playboy did not want any of that? Ha, that was my Jim Rome impression. You probably did not get it, though. It is only fair that Elton John gets to have an opinion on Christianity. Enough Christians have an opinion on his lifestyle to balance things out I assure you. That is not to say his take is correct, though. The idea that Jesus was gay has no basis in historical or religious record, but if you say things while accenting them flamboyantly an education is not required, I guess. Even in the context of the rest of the interview Sir Elton's comments are not supported rationally. The two previous quotes deal with his addiction and psychosis concerning cocaine and how the drug was the building block of all of his romantic relationships. After that base of knowledge I am now supposed to take your views on religion seriously? Just be on your merry way, Tiny Dance, I like William Shatner's interpretation of Rocketman better than your original performance anyway.
Riddle finish: If the theory of intelligent design is false then how did Christopher Hitchens get so damn smart? Think about it. Get to the second level.
