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.
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
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
thanks glassslipper, never heard of that before, No, I am simply waiting to see how this forum operates before I invest any time or real effort in it, I really like the writing of so many but there is one major problem and I have to see how the man deals with these issues.....
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)!
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....
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.
Wasn't Jesus married to Maria Magdelene? Okay, I've been reading Dan Brown. But who cares whether Jesus was gay? It makes no differences to anyone's life what anyone likes to do in bed, so to speak -- unless they want to do it with you, so to speak.
jesus wasn't married to mary magdalene there is no evidence that jesus ever married at all, she was a disciple and followed him, sexual orientation only matters to religious people and then only if htey want to convert you to thier faith. i am not trying to convert you so we are friends, see ya camlo
i do not think the bashers would believe if it was proved they would just call it a fake and go on bashing, people need to let people into church and let God decide if they are in sin, the word says judge not lest you be judged all the more harsh and whatever measure you measure out shall be measured back unto you, guess what Jesus gets to do that measuring back and he disaproves of hatred, I am not gay but I am not going to bash someone who is or not allow them into church
"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."
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.

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.
we are created in the image of God not Jesus and God is not flesh there fore he is not any sexual orientation at all, the image we are created in is spirit not flesh this is why you are eternal whether you accept christ or not, accept and enter eternity in heaven, reject and enter eternity in hell, yhou could not spend eternity in hell if you were not already eternal. just a thought.
they do not call it a dress it is traditional and considered a type of robe or caftan, they are still wearing them in the middle east today and if you called it a dress you would be shot for insulting a man.
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 just returned from Chicago's gay pride week, where I marched along with my friends from Campit Resort from Saugatuck, Michigan. We were float #173 of 250 floats. Gay protesters slashed the tires of 50 floats, thinking that it would stop the parade, but all it did was delay it. The media reported...
Is the bible against or okay with homosexuality?I have read scripture that goes both ways (no pun intended!) and I am honestly confused. Can some please quote scripture that shows God is against homosexuality or okay with it. And is it okay (with God) that I view it as wrong? I try not to in...
God created all things. He created them and called them what He wanted. All of it. It is His creation so He can call it whatever He wishes.He make the boundaries, sets the limits, just like we do if we create a game or if we own a business. It belongs to us. Nobody is going to tell us how to...
I am very interested to figure out the psychosis that creates this thing called sockpuppeting. Do you have any idea. In case you don't know that there are laws that prevent it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sockpuppet_(Internet)
