In an interview with the world's largest magazine, Parade, Elton John said:
"I think Jesus was a compassionate, super intelligent gay man who understood human problems."
Here's the link (ACCESS WITH EXTREME CAUTION):
As a Catholic, I consider this statement to be not only misleading, but an unspeakable insult and blasphemy to the Sacred Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Sacred Person of Our Lord is untouchable. His purity is so complete and encompassing that it surpasses our very power of expression.
Moreover, this blasphemy to Our Lord was reported on over the internet to people across America and the world.
That's why I ask you to protest this statement of Elton John and the fact that Parade Magazine (web exclusive) has circulated it to readers worldwide.
And please join me in offering urgent and heartfelt prayers of reparation to Our Lord Jesus Christ for this immense blasphemy.
It is my opinion, this is one of the worst insults ever made to Our Lord, due to its gravity and scope.
And therefore, you and I must strive to offer Him sublime, fervent and fitting reparation -- reparation that we must extend not only to our friends and family, but also to Catholics worldwide.
And please pray that the Most Pure and Holy Virgin Mary bless this protest and act of reparation with Her grace and protection.
