Elton John may expect a letter from Christian groups anytime soon. The openly-gay singer has revealed his view of Christianity on Parade Online, saying he thinks Jesus was gay. The interview will appear online in full on Friday, February 19.

"I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems," he told the publication. "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."

John married his same sex partner David Furnish in 2005 in a civil partnership. "I was attracted to David immediately. He was very well dressed, very shy," he said. "The next night we had dinner. After it, we consummated our relationship. We fell in love very quickly."

He's also been active in supporting LGBT social movements as well as AIDS charities since his friend Freddie Mercury died of the disease. "I set up my foundation because I wanted to make amends for the years I was a drug addict," he revealed. "People with HIV are still stigmatized. The infection rates are going up. People are dying. The political response is appalling. The sadness of it, the waste."

John also spoke about fame which has lost its appeal. "Princess Diana, Gianni Versace, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, all dead," John said. "Two of them shot outside their houses. None of this would have happened if they hadn't been famous. Fame attracts lunatics. I never had a bodyguard, ever, until Gianni died. I don't like celebrity anymore."

First of all Joshuantes all "HOLLY BOOKS" you mention were written by bias and bigoted men. God is a being of Universal love, unconditional and all forgiving. This too is what jesus professed...who knows, he could have been gay - he did hangout with 12 men on a regular basis and supposedly never had relations with a woman. If you knew someone in this day and age with that history you'd be calling him a faggot. Careful at who you throw stones at, you may have aimed and hit your very own Savior.

Jesus is the Prophet of Allah. And Allah forbit homosexuality in Quran. "Indeed, you approach men with desire, instead of women. Rather, you are a transgressing people" 7,81. We all muslims and Christians request to remove this insulting news from all websites, and apologize to Jusus and all of us. Jesus will come to the world again. We hope to see him again. Please remove this article from your website, otherwise I will consult to the solicitor because of the crime of insult.
