Sir Elton John Banned in Egypt

Sir Elton John has been banned from performing at an upcoming
private concert in Egypt. According to The Jerusalem Post, he was

barred from performing at the May 18 show by the head of Egypt’s

Musician Union because of his "anti-religious sentiments”. The head

of the union, Mounir al Wasimi stated that Sir Elton’s claim that

Jesus was gay & his demand for Middle Eastern countries to allow

sexual freedom amongst gays was ridiculous. This stems from the

Parade Mag interview last February when Elton stated, "I don''t know
what makes people so cruel. Try being a gay woman in the Middle

East, you're as good as dead," In this interview he also said that Jesus

was a “super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems."
