It was only a matter of time. The first openly gay Anglican bishop, Gene Robinson, insinuated that Jesus may have been gay.
You can go and read the story (which is surprisingly balanced, except for their choice of photos) for yourself, but here is the set up and the Robinson quote:
In answer to a question from the congregation about how the acceptance of homosexuality could be squared with the scriptural emphasis on redemption for sins, the Bishop replied: "Interestingly enough, in this day of traditional family values, this man that we follow was single, as far as we know, travelled with a bunch of men, had a disciple who was known as 'the one whom Jesus loved' and said my family is not my mother and father, my family is those who do the will of God. None of us likes those harsh words. That's who Jesus is, that's who he was at heart, in his earthly life.
Now here is his Clintonian vague denial by his spokesperson:
"Jesus was a non-traditional person who broke all the rules and hung out with all the wrong people. Anything else that people infer from the Bishop's comments is all speculation."
Maybe he has a future as a politician.
