According to Sir Elton John, Jesus was a gay lord.
The singer made the controversial claim in a new US interview, reports The Sun.
Elton, 62, said “I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.”
“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” he added.
Talking about how he and David Furnish, 47 – now his “husband” – first got together, the pop veteran told Parade magazine: “I was attracted to David immediately. He was very well dressed, very shy. The next night we had dinner.”
“After it, we fell in love very quickly.”
He said of previous lovers “I’d always choose someone younger. I wanted to smother them with love. I’d take them around the world, try to educate them.”
