His take on Christianity.Come one, he had twelve guys in dresses following him around 24/7. Totally.
"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."
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League (job description: take yourself very, very seriously) takes offense to calling Jesus super-intelligent! For real.
Jesus was certainly compassionate, but to say He was “super-intelligent” is to compare the Son of God to a successful game-show contestant. More seriously, to call Jesus a homosexual is to label Him a sexual deviant. But what else would we expect from a man who previously said, “From my point of view, I would ban religion completely.”Okay, so the gay comment is worse, but that was of course expected. As for Jesus being a sexual deviant, I wonder what Donohue thinks normative sexual behavior is. Celibacy?
We’re not sure what’s worse—John’s ignorance or intolerance. In any event, if we thought we could persuade him to issue an apology, we would try. But given his recidivism, we won’t even bother to ask. One thing is clear: someone needs to straighten John out.Translation: "Ignoring our own intolerance of sexual diversity, we'd really like to get more attention (please?), for example by calling for an apology (God needs our help) from the most brazenly gay man in the world, who by the way ought to join one of those groups who heal homosexuals though prayer."
