    Feminist theorist and author Germaine Greer said that the concept of motherhood has been “emptied out” and is “gone” in a lecture on women’s progress at the Hay Literary Festival in Wales on May 23. The outspoken Australian feminist, who once compared motherhood to captivity, critiqued the “concept” of motherhood at a time in which in vitro fertilization (IVF) has become increasingly popular. […] Greer also voiced her disapproval of singer/songwriter Elton John naming his same-sex “wife” David Furnish as the “mother” on their sons’ birth certificates. “Sir Elton John and his ‘wife,’ David Furnish, have entered on the birth...

    Sir Elton John is world famous, deservedly so. This billionaire singer is one of the most creative talents we have. But when he attacks Christian missionaries in Africa and other Third World regions, his message is off-key. Instead of Crocodile Rock, he’s peddling a Crocodile Crock. As a mega-star, Sir Elton is free to say whatever he likes. His native Britain and the U.S. are still free countries. But his belief that the worst thing about AIDS is the “stigma” attached to it is bizarre. We thought the worst thing about AIDS was the disease itself. Even here, however, Sir...

Despite Sir Elton being one of the most famous performers in the world, having sold more than 250 million records worldwide, if officials suspect he’s going to use his appearances to rail against Russia’s new rulings, they will pull the plug, according to The Times.

    Joel Osteen didn’t get where he is today by staking out controversial positions on biblical and moral issues. America’s prophet of Your Best Life Now built his reputation and his international following on an updated version of prosperity theology, laced with ample doses of pop psychology. The ever-smiling and effervescent pastor of America’s largest congregation has done his best to avoid association with doctrinal matters. More to the point — he has done his best to avoid talking about sin. Osteen would rather offer platitudes about attitudes. “God wants you to be a winner, not a whiner,” he asserts. Talking...

    Five-time Grammy-winner Sir Elton John performed at the June 5 wedding of radio star Rush Limbaugh and Kathryn Rogers. Significant controversy surrounds the fact that the openly gay Sir Elton serenaded the openly conservative Limbaugh. But while this hubbub is as loud as one of Sir Elton’s 1970s rock-and-roll anthems, a “Tiny Dancer”–like hush greeted his recent adventure in Islamofascist homophobia. The thrice-divorced Limbaugh, 59, married Kathryn Rogers, 33, before 400 guests in the Ponce de Leon Ballroom at The Breakers, the sumptuous landmark hotel in Palm Beach. Sir Elton’s appearance reportedly earned him $1 million. Such fees routinely underwrite...

    Elton John and Rush Limbaugh may seem like an unlikely pair to be found at the same event, but perhaps a wedding is as good a place as any to put politics aside.

    AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name...

    The hosts of The View debated Elton John’s perfromance at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding this weekend, and FNC’s Megyn Kelly gave her own take. As a wedding attendee herself, she was able to relay the cordial tone of the Elton-Rush, uh, partnership. Kelly introduced The View debate, saying, “While tolerance and respect were on display at the wedding, those qualities were missing from some over at The View this morning.” Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck took opposite sides of the argument, naturally, with Behar surmising John’s appearance was all about his rumored million-dollar payday. But Kelly says everyone got along very...

    I can’t stop asking myself how did Elton John,gay pop icon, ended up performing at at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding. Anyway, the act took place in Palm Florida on Saturday night.The guests included celebrities such as Fred Thompson, Sean Hannity, Bush adviser Karl Rove, golfer Tom Watson and Rudolph Giuliani. Did i forget to mention it was a 400 guests wedding? Limbaugh and Rogers met six years ago at a charity golf tournament. There is a 20 years difference between the two but that doesn’t seem to be a problem for them. Kathryn Rogers said she is “sometimes not able to...

    RABAT, Morocco – A concert by Elton John is testing the limits of Morocco's drive for modernity, probing this Muslim nation's complex and ambiguous attitudes toward homosexuality like rarely before. Islamists in the North African kingdom are outraged by the gay pop star's visit, while the royal palace, government and his many fans back his appearance Wednesday night. It's part of a tussle between conservatives and modernizers in a nation that criminalizes homosexuality but has long been famous for a swinging party scene. Morocco has attracted gay celebrities such as designer Yves Saint Laurent and writer Paul Bowles, and...

    Spinner ^ | May 6, 2010 | John D. Luerssen
    Elton John has been banned from performing an upcoming gig in Egypt as a result of remarks he made earlier in the year that suggested Jesus was a "super-intelligent gay man" and accused Middle Easterners of being homophobic. The New York Daily News reports John's May 18 concert was canceled by Mounir al-Wasimi, the head of Egypt's Music Union. Jesus is considered a prophet to worshippers of Islam, and John's remarks are considered an insult to the religion. John, who first came out in the '80s, is married to David Furnish. "A homosexual who wants to ban religions, claimed that...

    Sir Elton John lost sight of his British etiquette when he snubbed former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin at the TIME 100 gala Wednesday night. "It's nice to be at an event where you meet some unusual people, like Sarah Palin," said the Brit, immediately following his remark with an eyebrow raise. When asked who he wanted to meet most at the gala, Elton followed with another jab saying, "Not Sarah Palin but anybody else would be fine." Fellow TIME 100 honorees included actor Neil Patrick Harris, Taylor Swift, Ben Stiller and Ashton Kutcher. "I can't even get my dogs...

    Elton John claims that Jesus was “super-intelligent” – wow! Actually, a “super-intelligent gay man” – oh!... Where is the barrage of questions as to how he came to such conclusions? Where is the evidence which is surely demanded of him? Where is the skepticism? Where are the demands for his qualifications to speak on matters historical? Where is anything but a thus saith Sir Elton John?... So, according to Sir Elton John Jesus was a “gay man” and a “gay person” but he is not saying that the man he referred to as “gay” in two interviews “definitely was gay.”...
