Sorry, Sir Elton, but I trust the words of the Light of the World more than the crooner of Candle in the Wind.

Elton John apparently has never read the New Testament. Jesus’s views on sexual morality were arguably more strict than even most conservatives would be completely comfortable with.

Perhaps he was talking about some guy named “Jesus” who he met at a party. The words of Jesus of Nazareth, however, are quite clear on the matter.

When he dies, Sir Elton wants to be buried with his rear end sticking out of the ground,....so his friends can come by for a cold one.

As a practicing Jew, Jesus would have known G*d considered queers “an abomination”.

However, compared to the wisdom and insight of Elton John, what would Jesus have known?

Yeah, Jesus would especially love how you and your partner bought some kids to raise in the life. He was really into guys abusing kids. Worth a millstone, I think he said.

No, Jesus would not approve of homosexuality.

“Male and female he created them.”

Why would Jesus speak against what his heavenly Father had created?

Jesus said at least once, that He did not come to condemn, but to save. (paraphrased)

Sadly, some folks think this means you can do anything you want, and Jesus said so.

Wrong!

The wages of sin are death. We can’t choose sin over Jesus anymore than Eve could. We must at least make an effort to comply with God’s wishes. None of us will be totally able to, but Jesus sacrifice will be there to fill in the gaps for those of us who try, and also accept salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

Thank God.

Genesis 1

English Standard Version (ESV)

26 Then God said, “Let us make man[h] in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in his own image,
    in the image of God he created him;
    male and female he created them.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” 29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

My emphasis in the bible verses.

"Wasn’t this sick man hired by Rush to perform at his wedding?"

Yes, and that was after John claimed that Jesus Himself was a homo. Personally, I'd have done without wedding music before I'd have hired that festering example of moral rot.

The media is pushing this gay stuff every day. The way things are going, in a year the Overton Window will be pushed so far that bestiality and necrophilia will presented as normal.

Our culture is collapsing.
