Elton’s Trouble in Paradise

|

Elton_john_2Church leaders on the island of Trinidad and Tobago are trying to ban Elton John from performing there. Not only did they say that the Rocket Man’s sexual orientation failed to conform to Biblical teaching, they also claimed that the famously gay star’s “visit to the island can open the country to be tempted towards pursuing his lifestyle.” In honor of those carefully measured words, we’d like to announce Archdeacon Philip Isaac as our “Moron of the Week.”

T&T has a notoriously long anti-gay history, but that’s not going to stop Elton from doing his job at the Plymouth Jazz Festival – and to him we doff our caps, say thanks for the Almost Famous soundtrack and the Scissor Sisters, and wish him the best. Just don’t be shocked if you see some T&T taxpayers playing the hell out of the piano, wearing rose-colored glasses, and slagging off Madonna at press conferences – these things rub off.

  1. Wow!, this was a top quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done

  2. Well done, this is very fun to read. Have you ever considered submitting articles to news papers?
