Jesus was gay - $51,000 says so (News.com.au, 5/29/2003)
JESUS was gay – the University of Queensland gave $51,000 of public money to a PhD student to reach that conclusion....

As well as his revelation about Christ, Dr McCleary has also reached the conclusion that three – or possibly four – of Jesus's chosen disciples were also gay....

Dr McCleary also believes that gay people find it easier to be Christian. "You don't have to be gay to be Christian, but it would be easier," he said....

He said Jesus's astrological chart, clues in the scriptures to which the churches had been blind and accurate biblical translations had all played a part in his conclusions. "The starting point is the matter of John, who always referred to himself as Jesus's beloved disciple," Dr McCleary said.

I, frankly, don't want to know Dr. McCleary's interpretation of Jesus's last commandment, the mandamus ("Love one another as I have loved you," John 15:12). But I will say this: he makes a good case for separation of church and state. Also for separation of education and state, and separation of historical research and state.
