Elton John one of the United Kingdom’s most renowned musicians said in an interview with Sky News that if Jesus Christ were alive today, he would not see anything wrong in gay marriage.

The 67-year-old openly gay “Sacrifice” singer is in a committed relationship with filmmaker David Furnish, and they have two sons together.

Elton John discussed about supporting youths through sports and human rights, especially for gay people.

In the interview he said, “Globally, we seem to have gone backwards over the last eighteen months, and certainly in certain areas. As long as I’m alive, I will fight for people’s rights —anybody whose human rights are wronged or taken away from them, I will try and fight them… I may not achieve anything, but I have to try.”

When he was asked if gay members of the clergy can get married, John said “Of course”.

“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. That is what the church should be about. “ he finished.

    Although they claimed to be wise,they become fools……therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchange the truth of God for a lie……since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind to do what ought not to be done. Romans 1:22-28

    Seeing how the bible has changed its stance over a number of issues: incest, polygamy, premarital sex, stoning, foods, worship etc etc etc it is very possible that the biblical stance on homosexuality no longer holds.

      The word of God never changes… Its stance on all these issues remain the same, so wondering where you got your information from.

      excuse me, lest some people be misled by you wrong assumptions, No, the bible stance has not changed on anything; not in the last 2000+ years since Christ Jesus died.
      what has been altered to suit political correctness is the stance of ‘religious leaders’ and several unit of the church; and while this is deplorable, it doesn’t reflect the bible view.

      No, the bible DOES NOT support homosexuality, neither incest or any of a million sins; but God loves all equally, so while homosexuality should not be encouraged, homosexuals should not be condemned for Satan is the accuser of the Men but Christ Jesus is Just, the justifier and justification for all who approach heaven through him.
      that said, what homosexuals (indeed any sinner) need is not your judgement but YOUR PRAYER AND LOVE.
