Ban Religion, Says Elton John

Ban religion, says Elton John - Channelnewsasia, 13th Nov 2006
  • "I think religion has always tried to turn hatred towards gay people. From my point of view, I would ban religion completely," he was quoted as saying.
  • "Organized religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into really hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate. The world is near escalating to World War Three and where are the leaders of each religion?"
  • "Why aren't they having a conclave? Why aren't they coming together? I said this after 9/11 and people thought I was nuts. Instead of more violence why isn't there a meeting of religious leaders?" he said.
  • "It's like the peace movement in the Sixties. Musicians got through to people by getting out there and doing peace concerts but we don't seem to do them anymore.
  • "If John Lennon were alive today, he'd be leading it with a vengeance."

An alternative viewpoint of Elton John. I am not against any religion, his comments are just something that all of us should ponder about, what is wrong with this world? People stop loving each other and everyone is fighting selfishly for lust, money and power.

In a way, we should love everyone around us regardless of heterosexual, bisexual or homosexual.

With more understanding through medical study, it has been proven that a different sexual relationship is simply due to the hormone factor. Basically they just live at a different way, which is pre-determined by their hormone and to discrimate them is in-humane.

They deserve love from the community too.

I guess I enjoy Elton's singing voice better than his viewpoint on how to achieve world peace. :-)
