Elton again speaks of 'Jesus Freaks out in the streets'
In an interview with Sunday's Observer newspaper, Elton John said of organized religion:
I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. Religion promotes the hatred and spite against gays. But there are so many Christian people I know who are gay and love their religion ...
From my point of view I would ban religion completely, even though there are some wonderful things about it. I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book. But the reality is that organised religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate.
Consequently, we hear Jesus will no longer use "The Bitch Is Back" as the theme music for his second coming.
