Was Jesus Gay? Maybe

Jesus Christ claimed to be the Son of God – the literal human manifestation of the creator of the universe. We’re not going to even attempt to answer the question of whether or not that’s true in this post. Instead, we’re going to ask a simpler question – Was Jesus gay?

Fundamentalist Christianity has been one of the main forces against LGBTQ+ rights in recent years, but there are many who would claim that the very man who founded the religion was gay himself. Does this rumor have any teeth? Let’s find out.

Jesus loved his disciple John in a special way

The last words of Jesus Christ before he was taken away to be executed were as follows:

“Woman behold your son!’ Then he said to the disciple. ‘Behold your mother!’ And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.”

The gospels make multiple references to the fact that Jesus loved his disciple John in a special way. It doesn’t elaborate much on what that meant, but it was noteworthy enough for it to be mentioned multiple times, so there must be something there.

Furthermore, in many depictions of the Last Supper, John sits next to Jesus with his head resting on his shoulder. Clearly, there was some special affection between the two.

However, this question is ultimately going to remain the stuff of speculation. There’s absolutely no way to verify whether Jesus was gay since he lived over 2,000 years ago and there’s no credible written evidence about his love life. We know he was unmarried and that he had a special relationship with John, and that’s all there is to it. Like many other historical figures, it’s difficult to determine anything about Jesus’ love life.

What did Jesus say about gay people?

There are many passages in the Bible that condemn homosexuality outright. Some of them even call for violence against gay people. However, Jesus Christ himself doesn’t say anything about it. His final command was that we should love each other as he loved us, but he says nothing whatsoever about sexuality, and virtually nothing is known of his own sexuality.

Of course, some would argue that since Jesus and the Father are one (his own words), then the words of the Father (which condemn homosexuality in the Old Testament) can be taken to be Jesus’ stance on the issue.

We’re not going to comment on that as we’re not biblical scholars. All we can say for sure is Jesus never directly mentioned it in the accepted gospels of the New Testament. So, it can’t have been that important to him. After all, the supposed Son of God came here to teach us, so if homosexuality was high on his list of priorities, we’re sure he would have mentioned it.

Was Jesus Christ bisexual?

Ultimately, we don’t know. There are rumors he had a love relationship with Mary Magdalene, and many biblical scholars are starting to ask questions about the nature of Jesus’ relationship with his disciple John.

Despite all of this, nothing is known about his sexuality. The very concept of sexuality wasn’t well understood in Biblical times. We’re really not sure about Jesus’ sexuality or even if he had those sorts of desires at all.

So, was Jesus gay?

According to Sir Elton John, Jesus was gay. Read this article to find out his views on the matter.

We’re going to say probably not. As with all of our other articles, we never conclude that someone was or is gay unless there’s some actual conclusive evidence to prove so. Until that arises, which we doubt it ever will, we’re going to say the sexuality of Jesus Christ is undetermined.

Was Hitler Gay?

He may have stood like he had something up his bum, and he certainly was an admirer of the virulent male form, but was Hitler gay?

There have been lots of historical rumors about the Nazi leader. Some say he even murdered to cover up his sexuality. Is there any truth to it? We’re about to find out.

Did Hitler kill Nazi leaders to cover up his secret?

In the book Hitler’s Secret: The Double Life of a Dictator, German historian Lothar Machtan published first-hand accounts by people who claimed to be Hitler’s former homosexual lovers, and some historical source documents to back the claims up.

According to the book, Hitler had several high-ranking Nazi officials killed to cover up his secret and preserve his image. It alleges that one high-ranking storm trooper began blackmailing Hitler, threatening to reveal his secret. This man was gay himself, and was allegedly murdered for daring to threaten the dictator.

The source documents to back these claims go all the way back to World War I, when a fellow German soldier wrote in his diary that Hitler would “lie at night with his whore,” a fellow soldier.

Clearly, this will never be fully confirmed or denied as Hitler is long dead (thankfully) and nobody alive can likely verify it either way, but it does seem that there’s some evidence that Hitler was gay or swung both ways.

Was Hitler bisexual?

There are declassified U.S. intelligence documents from 1942 that state Hitler was both ‘homosexual and heterosexual.’

The statement was part of the overall profile of the dictator compiled in the early ‘40s by the Office of Strategic Services which would later become the CIA. It further stated he was a sadomasochist (which makes total sense) and that he had a particular thing for a cross-dressing deputy.

This information came from a friend of Hitler’s who had known him for decades. He said that when Hitler was a young, aspiring artist, he stayed in  aVienna hostel known to be frequented by old men looking for sexual encounters with younger men.

Hitler dating history

Keeping with his carefully crafted public image, Hitler only ever dated Aryan-looking German women. These included Englishwoman Unity Mitford and his infamous wife Eva Braun. The pair never had children as far as anybody knows.

So, was Hitler gay?

It’s difficult to say with any degree of certainty, but there does seem to be some credible evidence that Hitler was bisexual. It’s lots of little, unverifiable things, but it’s hard to see why a WWI soldier would have written such things in his diary years before Hitler came to prominence. Ultimately, nobody knows, and it will likely forever remain that way,
