Elton John says Jesus Christ would have supported gay marriage had it been he was still alive.
The gay music legend dropped the bombshell during an interview with Sky News, when he was asked about the church’s ban on gay priests getting married and Catholic priests’ ban on having sex.
‘These are old and stupid things,’ he said. ‘If Jesus Christ was alive today, I cannot see him, as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was, saying this could not happen.’
He continued, ‘He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that’s what the church should be about.’
