Did Jesus have another cross to bear? Elton John think so: "I think Jesus was a compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems,” John tells Parade. “On the cross, he forgave the people who crucified him. Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving. I don't know what makes people so cruel.” John also says, “Fame attracts lunatics. I never had a bodyguard, ever, until Gianni [Versace] died. I don't like celebrity anymore."
