Elton John wants "hateful" religion banned
LONDON (Reuters) - Elton John has said organized religion should be banned because it promotes homophobia and turns some people into "hateful lemmings." "I would ban religion completely, even though there are some wonderful things about it," the British singer said in an interview with the Observer newspaper on Sunday. "Religion has always tried to turn hatred toward gay people. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it is not really compassionate." "The reality is that organized religion doesn't seem to work," he added. The 59-year-old singer, who has sold an estimated 200 million records, is no stranger to controversy. In an interview, he said his "bad temper and irrationality" emerged only when he was tired.

My objection was the "lemmings" crack.

And "organized religion doesn't seem to work"? Like I said, I think he needs to go take a nap.

Funny, I haven't seen any articles about religious Gay bashing against Elton John lately. I'm sure that would have made the liberal media. Makes me wonder what brought this all about.

Seems to me he might be sick of organized religion bashing him all the time?

The wise and all seeing Sir Elton John has spoken.
Leviticus 18:22 "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination".

Come on Elton, If you want to live your life your own way, so be it, but don't bash organized religion because it does not fit your life style.

For a non-religious person, I've heard him spew some hate himself.
