Jesus was Homosexual

    In Parade - published in the USA - Elton John claims Jesus was a Homosexual....what do you think....was Jesus Gay?

      IntimatEvolutionposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      That is an answer that only Jesus could know.

      Maybe he was, maybe he wasn't.  Who cares, it his message of peace, love, and acceptance that we should be commenting on. 

      Oh how great he was!!!

      You know, when I see stuff like this, I try to put things into perspective.  I think of Alexander the Great.  He was openly bisexual.  However, I don't think there is a single person that would have called him a fagot to his face.  I don't think WestPoint teaches young Cadettes about his sexuality.  No, they teach him about his brilliance. Not who he was poking that day on the battlefield.

      leave it to Elton John to say something like that. I'm sure whomever quoted him, took what he said seriously. this from a man who claims that he slept with all of the backstreet boys and Justin Timberlake.

      There is no contemporary evidence that Jesus existed outside of niche religious texts. The claim is intellectually bankrupt.

      Elton John probably knows as much about this as he does about the Napoleonic Wars. Just another example of a non-professional spouting off about a highly specialized field with thousands of full-time experts studying a difficult question. Oh, I forgot, he's a celebrity, he must know stuff

    Jesus did not have a spouse(that is what it is led to believe)so he must be Gay.A logical explanation for the solvers of mystery.

    1. brimancandy profile image80
      brimancandyposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      If the bible is true, Jesus died at a very young age. (I would like to know exactly how old he was when he died.) If that is the case he might not have been interested in marriage, as most young men are not.

      Also, it would seem that he was more interested in gathering worshippers than having any known interest in sex or love of any kind. That could be why most priests take the no-sex vow. but, we all know none of them really practice it.

      A sock puppet is a sort of alter-ego of someone who has another account, but uses the alter ego (usually) to stir up mischief. It's generally frowned upon, but I understand lots of people do it...and many people know about who's sock puppets are who's. I, for one, have never been able to unravel it. I assume that every avatar is a single entity until proven otherwise. LOL

      Ehhh...the worst they'll do is flag your hub and ask you to edit it to comply with TOS if it's not in compliance. As long as you cooperate with TOS (terms of service) you should be fine. Make sure to read all the FAQS in the "help" section.

      If you're really worried about a first Hub, go to the Hub Makeover thread and get some help. There are all kinds of supportive people around here willing to lend a hand.

      Now, get out there and publish something so everyone knows you're a real boy! (or girl)! wink

    As Intimate already eloquently stated, who the hell cares? (Not quite in those words...) Obviously it was not the focus of his life, or something would have been stated about it some place in the Bible. And even if it was covered up for whatever reason, so what? Like it would undo the good he brought to the world....

    I'm thinking not.

    atheist communist? lol, ain't that a contradiction in terms.

    communism: Any economic theory whereby all persons are 'required' to work without wages (slaves) for the collective good of the idea, resources; or system based on the collective ownership of property and by the organization of labor for the common advantage of all members.

    funny, because 'Christianity' was the basis for this.
    "believers sharing all things in common", with no self ownership of anything.

    How exactly does atheist adhere to that?

I don't know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East -- you're as good as dead."

    There are rumors that Jesus was married too... And had children. Since we have no proof of Jesus even EXISTING, other than a book dedicated to his teachings, which could be entirely made up since there are MILLIONS of other books out there written about imaginary characters, there is no way for anyone to know if Jesus was a homosexual.

    Personally, I don't think it should matter either way. Christianity teaches its followers to love and accept people for who they are, although about 85% of Christians seem to have forgotten that the main focus of Jesus's teachings were about love, peace, and acceptance of your fellow man.

        Pani Midnyte Odinposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I guess it all depends on your personal interpretation of the Bible and religious texts. If you look at the teachings in a negative way, all they will teach you is hatred. If you look at the teachings in a positive way, they will teach you love and tolerance.

        Unfortunately, most use the Bible as a way to put fear of God into the people. Perhaps this is part of the reason why I am no longer a Christian. As I grew older, I realized how easy it is to misconstrue the teachings of the Bible to mean, "Hate anyone even slightly different than you." Of course, I believe the people who have misconstrued it to mean these things must be miserable little people who only want others to be miserable with them.

        Fortunately, I have found a different path, one that teaches us to embrace differences and accept all other living creatures for what and whom they are.

      No one is agreeing that Jesus was a homosexual. Most of the responses have made that clear. Had you read most of the comments, no one can ever know.

      And what would you be basing your accusation of the woman, you so blatantly describe as a "whore"?

      Do you consider Mary a "whore", because you read it somewhere in the bible? Was she a "whore" by choice? Or did someone force her?

      Do you even have a clue?

    Back to what Elton John said: I think he'd like most men to be gay, just so as he could (according to his own conception of things) feel 'normal'.
    In actual fact, thinking, intelligent people don't give a damn about who is or isn't gay, and certainly have nothing against anyone who is -- because that would be plain stupid.
    I think he's also saying that only a gay man could have such good virtues as Jesus did.
    It's totally ridiculous.

    I have to say, even I'm not a believer, that that pic of Jesus is a little bit too much !

    If he was gay maybe his name was not Jesus.  Perhaps it was Zeus but his friends always called him "Heeeeeyyyyy  Zeus"
