Naturally, singing superstar Elton John is going to have an opinion about gay marriage. He’ll be having one of his own next year.
But in an interview with Sky News earlier this week, he took a moment to offer his opinion of how Jesus Christ would react to same-sex marriage. It would be fine, of course. “(Jesus) was all about love and compassion… and that’s what the church should be about.”
This is nothing new for Elton, who back in 2010 referred to Jesus as a “super-intelligent gay man.” You hang around with a dozen guys, still live home with mom, people make assumptions...
When reached for comment, Pope Francis said he was busy loading “Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road” and the soundtrack from "Aida" into his iPod, but he'd get back to us.
