  1. Jesus hates idiotic people like him. Jesus strongly hates homosexuality. In the Bible, it is clearly written that homosexuality is a sin. People like him will suffer during their last days. How dare he is! Shame on him, being a gay and calling Jesus a gay. It’s better for him to change right now. People who mock Jesus will surely suffer. I request everybody to read the bible properly and do what bible says. All sleeping Christians please wake up and fight for justice. Let God to take during last days.

    • Take it from someone who has read the bible, I do not think homosexuality is a sin and I strongly believe Jesus does not think that either! I’m a christian, I live my life after my beliefs and I’m bisexual. What does that make me?? A sinner?? The God I believe in does not hate because of others love. Because of people like you that misunderstand things like this, there’s so much hatred in the world. Fight for equality, love and christianity instead of hate ans fear!

  2. Elton John, Reg, is a fairly short man, about 5′ 8″ ( a bit taller when younger). He always had light brown hair, actually closer to ash blond than red, but he liked being red-haired. His eye color, like Harrison Ford, is a dull hazel (more gray-brown than green brown). One book of his, or on him, shows him realistically with bronze brown hair and a straight semi-serious face, with cool hazel eyes.
