The return of the Big Fat Who Cares Department: on religion and homosexuality.

According to Elton John, noted biblical scholar (ha!), Jesus Christ was gay . . .

"I think," Sir Elton said, "Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems.  . . .  Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving."

Does the fact that Jesus was compassionate or the fact that he was super-intelligent or the fact that he understood human problems constitute evidence of homosexuality?  Does the fact that he wanted us to be loving and forgiving mean that he was gay?

Of course not.  

And, I really want to know, why do any of us care what Elton John thinks about the sexuality of Jesus?
