It has come to our attention that Jesus possibly was gay. We’re shocked. It never occurred to us that a gentle thirtysomething mother’s boy who never married, wore sandals and a caftan, and preferred the company of men and little children might be a homosexual. But now telegraph.co.uk reports that New Hampshire’s Rt Rev Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Anglican bishop, is outing the son of God in his sermons, pointing to the close relationship Jesus had with one of his disciples, namely John. But David Virtue, the man who runs a conservative Anglican website and is not averse to wishing God would strike someone dead, is having none of it, calling the allegations “rubbish.”
“It is appalling deconstructionism from the liberal lobby which will spin even the remotest thing to turn it into a hint that Biblical figures are gay. It is so utterly preposterous to imply that Jesus’s relationship with John was homo-erotic, but twisting the truth is the only way these people can get scriptural justification for their lifestyles. Can you imagine Calvin, Luther or Erasmus saying something like this? It is a wonder that thunder and lightning bolts don’t strike Bishop Robinson down.”
Dave, now when you say “these people,” you may actually be taking the Lord’s name in vain.
