WND.com editor Joseph Farah has criticized singer Elton John for saying Jesus would support gay marriage.

“If Jesus Christ was alive today I cannot see him as the Christian person that he was and the great person that he was, saying [marriage equality] could not happen,” John said last week. “He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that's what the church should be about.”

Farah offered John – and President Barack Obama – some “tough love” on the issue.

“Elton John, meet the real Jesus – not the Jesus of your imagination and self-justification,” Farah wrote in a column titled Elton John, Meet Jesus.

“Not only has man put asunder individual marriages, but people like Elton John, Barack Obama and a host of judges have, some in the name of Jesus, attempted to put asunder the entire concept of marriage.”

“[W]hat Elton John is advocating and practicing is something more than just the practice of an 'abomination' and a 'vile practice.' He's also promoting the profaning of marriage, an institution Jesus said was created by God in the Garden of Eden.”

After saying that he wanted to “lay some cards on the table” in the “spirit of tough love, designed to save people from really bad decisions,” Farah called marriage equality an “oxymoron.”

“What today's proponents of same-sex marriage seek to do is redefine marriage, claiming this institution that has long been seen as the literal building block of civilized, productive and self-governing societies is 'discriminatory' because it prohibits homosexuals from participating. Nothing could be more absurd.”

“Please tell me how a same-sex couple consummates one of these make-believe marriages? Acts of sodomy were never considered consummation in the eyes of the law. Again, this suggests that whatever it is the homosexual activists are trying to achieve through their relentless campaign, it is not marriage. It would have to be some complete and utter corruption of the idea of marriage.”

“It's time to lay it on the line with some plain talk: Two men cannot marry each other because they cannot consummate that union. Period. End of story. Two women cannot marry each other because they cannot consummate that union. Period. End of story.”
