Music icon Elton John ascribes to the Pete Buttigieg school of theological thought — the kind that suggests Christians who believe homosexual acts to be sinful are the furthest away from God.
According to Newsbusters, John gave his theological exegesis during an interview with Variety’s Marc Malkin, where he made no distinction between people who believe homosexual acts to be sinful and people who treat members of the LGBT community with cruelty and hatred.
“We’re all God’s kids,” John said, implying that conservative Christians believe that he is not a child of God. “People who should know better in places of responsibility to attack gay people and transgender people . . . I think, to be honest with you, they claim to be close to God. They couldn’t be farther away from God if they tried.”
In the same interview, Elton John also advised LGBTQ youth to “leave” their homes if they are “unhappy.”
“Their parents don’t understand; religion gives them a hard time,” Elton John said.
