I can’t believe I missed this article published by The Guardian after Easter weekend. It’s written by Anglican priest Paul Oestreicher, who on Good Friday talked to his church about the possibility that Jesus Christ was gay. He claims the evidence is in the last words of Jesus said to his mother, Mary, and disciple John: “When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple standing near, he said to his mother, ‘Woman behold your son!’ Then he said to the disciple, ‘Behold your mother!’ And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home."
Oestreicher goes on to say:
I think the idea of Jesus being gay is a beautiful interpretation. I’m actually giddy at the thought because Jesus was the first guy I had a crush on as a kid (I was into BDSM from a young age). But all kidding aside, it’s obvious that the love Jesus felt for John was stronger than any other love he knew — and regardless of whether or not that love was sexual, it is an important example of same-sex devotion.
