When i came across this article, i was speechless at the ignorance of certain people, especially when you are a public figure.
In a new interview with Sky News, English singer-songwriter, Sir Elton John, believes he knows where Jesus would’ve stood in the same-sex marriage debate.
The musician, who plans to marry his partner David Furnish next year, talked to Sky News on Sunday about how pleased he is with Pope Francis and how he wishes the Church of England would show greater support for his message. John said:
“The new Pope has excited me so much by his humanity. He’s stripped it down to the bare bones and said it’s all basically about love and taking everybody in, inclusiveness.
And that has to be encouraged by the Church of England.”
‘So when it comes to issues such as vows of celibacy for Catholic priests and gay clergymen being able to marry’, John said the church needs to catch up with the times.
“These are old and stupid things, and the church hierarchy might be up in arms about it — the traditionalists — but times have changed. We live in a different time. 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 was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together, and that is what the church should be about.”
