Elton John gives an interview to Parade magazine that touches on love, drugs, celebrity, and Christianity.
Says Elton about Jesus: "I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems. On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don't know what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you're as good as dead."
