Christian Concern has lambasted Elton John’s recent comments about same-sex marriage, labeling the singer’s remarks “staggeringly arrogant”.

Campaigns Director Andrew Marsh gave an interview to BBC Radio Wales in which he claimed Sir Elton’s statement on homosexuality was “remarkably ignorant” and presumed “to dictate to Jesus Christ what he should think”.

“The reality is he [Jesus] has spoken quite clearly on this subject,” Marsh continued.

He was responding to Sir Elton’s assertion that: “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 this [same-sex marriage] could not happen. He was all about love and compassion and forgiveness and trying to bring people together and that’s what the church should be about.”

Marsh disagreed, however, insisting that Jesus “went out of his way to underline that marriage is between a man and a woman, as God had intended”.
