  1. This is unecessary provocation. I don’t think it serves the gay community well to come with such declarations. The idea that Jesus was gay is not new at all and frankly irrelevant. We will never know anyway. What is true is that Jesus always sided with those who were oucasts. There is no doubt he would come and visit us as he would do with many other minorities.ben

    Well, Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Tojo, Pol Pot and Amin were gay too…so why not JAY-Zeus?

  4. This guy is an idiot. Will he make a mention of the islamic prophet mohammed’s private life? Or is he a bit scared of what might happen in that case.

    “Christians all over the province, and indeed, the world will be disgusted by this slur.” – what ‘slur’ is that then?

  6. The day we stop these socalled “blasphemies” will be the day when organized religion does the same when it blasphemes against US! They all have the corner on hypocrisy and bigotry. They all seem to forget the old line….”judge not and ye shall not be judged” and “let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”. Fallen on deaf ears as usual.Robert

  7. If somebody wants to believe that jesus was gay thats their personal belief and they can say that to anybody they like, it shouldnt be an issue for the church who for over 1000 years have painted jesus as asexual,and it shouldn’t be a slur on somebodys character to say that they’re gay especially a person nobody alive has ever met

    “I am entitled to that belief as a gay Christian.”Typical. Who needs facts and evidence when you can merely invent your own and them claim that you’re “entitled” to them “as a [insert group here].”Ridiculous.

  9. “Typical. Who needs facts and evidence when you can merely invent your own and them claim that you’re “entitled” to them “hmm much like how Christianity was invented

  10. Regardless if Christ was gay (which I don’t think plausible because He was perfect. He IS the Son of God.) what is even more interesting is He was CELIBATE.So do the activists claim they are gay because Christ was gay? I mean what is the point? Jesus would not be marching beside them, and gay does not mean underprivileged btw, but He would be urging them to celibacy. Homosexuality is their particular Cross, and Jesus would NEVER urge people to abandon themselves to their sin.They can call themselves Gay Christians all they like, but they reveal how little they know about Christ.

  11. And Peter Thatchell is straight. I am entitled to that belief as a straight person, and no one can change my mind.

    Why is it whenever homosexuals smear someone with the gay brush it’s never meant as a compliment?

    For a rational Humanist assessment of Jesus’ stance on sexual morality please visit GALHA’s website http://www.galha.org and click on ‘Briefings’

  14. Would all the freaks that believe in God please piss off and leave the rest of us normal people to enjoy life free from artificial made up guilts, hatreds and misogynistic rules.Religion is the root of ALL so called evil – it’s a dogma made up by men to control other men (and women) and degrade those they find unacceptable.So I say again – please piss off if you choose to believe in myths and legends so much so that you are paralysed by them – the rest of us would quite like our world back.Ta!

    was Christ Gay?Ofcorse not! Not becoae he was thesonofman or because hewasbornwithoutsin but because a Gay Identity wasn’t one that would have been avalable to him.Weither He slept with men or with men and women means nothing as he lived in a time without acess to such identities.Now as to weither he’d have marched at Pride…I doubt it. Not because Queers are Evil but becuase, as Bertrand Russell pointed out, he was a bit of a reactionary at times. Well Russell says far more but we’ll forget that for now – no point winding up the God Botherers.

  16. SAHMmy, you’re a fool. I’m sorry, there is no other way of putting that. Because you think Jesus being straight means he was perfect? Are you living under a rock on Mars???Why are there so many of these christian “straight” people on a gay site??? After a cheap thrill, are we? Gay is a sin, well, until we sneak out on our wives and go cruising a sauna!

    Will:they’re here (I assume) because they wish to ‘save’ us.either that or they’re looking for Gaydar…

    […] a discussion on BBC Radio Ulster in August of last year, gay rights campaigner P A MacLochlainn added fuel to the fire stating: “I believe that a 33-year-old unmarried rabbi living in […]

    So what if this guy wants a gay spiritual icon. People use their gods to kill, rape, destroy, profit and differentiate themselves from others in the name of “heaven given” heterosexuality, why can’t this gay man have his gay jesus to spiritually confide in. Egyptians and Greeks had gay gods until christians gave them the gift of physical shame and mental repression.

    Don’t forget the DaVinci code – the christians went berserk over his perceived heterosexuality.
