I think Jesus might have been gay. He wasn't married, and the Bible tells us that he loved John, so it seems very possible. THoughts?

No. He wasn't gay. He was invented.

No, that would have made him bi.

King James, who commissioned the Bible, may have been gay.

Doesn't seem like it. Seems like he didn't laugh much. He did drink wine and socialize with hookers and tax collectors, according to some accounts.

Some people claim that he was married to Mary Magdalene. Some people think that the wedding feast where he turned water into wine was actually his own wedding.

Some people think that Jesus is a fictional character that combines attributes of Mithra and Horus (the "H" in Jesus H. Christ) and other mythological characters.

You have to hand it to the Romans for figuring out how to continue their empire, in a different format, up until the present day. When you can’t pay your armies anymore, switch to missionaries.

John 13:23 KJV "Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved."


Well apparently there was some burning in the bosom going on sans Holy Ghost.

I think it's possible. In any event, as an observant Jew of the time period, in all likelihood he was married.

The quality of the assertions made in the new testament is low. As such to rely on a few short quotes from anonymous non eye witness sources and assert Jesus sexual identity is sloppy thinking

"to rely on a few short quotes from anonymous non eye witness sources"

That describes the entire Bible

The secret gospel of Mark. Supposedly being certain chapter left out of the current book of Mark, details an incident where Jesus spends the night with a young man who "comes to him wearing a linen cloth over his naked body. He remsined the night with Jesus who taught him the secrets of the kingdom."

Make of that what you will.

As far as being married.....Brigham taught jesus was a polygamist. Married to Martha and one of the Marys and had children who walk among us.

"The secrets of the Kingdom?" Nice euphemism--like we need another one. Love it.

Fun to speculate, but, makes me wonder. . . If some proof came to light that Jesus was indeed gay, how would modern day religion--the ones who are homophobic and anti-gay--handle that?

I suppose a whole discipline of apologetics would surface desperately on a mission to disprove the new information. OTOH some would rush their straight kids to conversion camps. Haha.

All I know is if we make it past the velvet rope, Jesus and John the Beloved are going to be the party you want to be invited to. Mary "Maggie" Magdalene will be dancing on the tables. (We all have our own fantasy. No?)

It's acceptable, even in today's Middle Eastern society, for men friends to hold hands.

I don't know. But I have it on good authority that Set and Horus were lovers.

No, Jesus of Nazareth never existed. Mythological figure


Now, Jesús from Mazatlan, that really sexy Latino on America's Got Talent, yes, he's gay

Yes. Jesus would be the one link missing in the Village People.

Can’t wait to see evangelicals start performing YMCA during services.

I don't know if he was gay, but he was a long-haired, bearded, gown-wearing liberal. The Mormons would excommunicate him regardless if he was gay or not.

He wasn't black or white. Am I right? Or left?

I think you might be
But Jesus isn't
Here to defend himself
So it is (a) grey [area]

A man has to get married to prove he's not gay?
Where did you hear that? Many gay men have wives.
It doesn't prove anything, especially magical thinking!

Where, and when [and if] did you learn of 'unisexuality'?
That's for people like us: yoU aNd I SEX yoU ALITY.
Jesus wasn't "caught" with a woman? He wasn't a fish!
That doesn't mean he didn't like women, or did like men.

Jesus SHAVES. But it doesn't mean he didn't like beards.
Beer Jesus. He has a beard. He wasn't gay, but just funny.
Jesus saves the truth for last and you aren't the last.
It's speculation at best that he even 'did it'. Did what?

He can be whatever you want him to be. Don't want him to be gay? Then he's not gay. Want him to be gay? Then he's gay. Want him to be married? Not married? Same thing.

He's a made-up persona anyway and no, I'm not re-opening the debate on whether or not an actual human existed. I mean that the persona of Jesus is completely fictional.

Yes. Gay or straight? We'll never know, but we do know for sure that Jesus as a persona is very adaptable. One size fits all.

Jesus can be customized for any religion or belief plan. You can make yours angry or loving, whipping moneychangers or serving loaves and fishes to guests. You can have gay Jesus casting demons into swine as he heals the blind or you can have straight Jesus throwing children to bears as he cuddles John the beloved but only like a brother.

On the Mount, or on your toast. It's your choice.
