Elton John Banned From Jamming With the Pharaohs

Elton John, who’s gone off the rails about institutional religion and dared called Jesus gay (and then clarified that he was only comparing himself to Jesus, like, jeez!), has been banned from entering Egypt to perform. Says Mounir al-Wasimi, head of the Egyptian Musician Union: “How do we allow a gay, who wants to ban religions, claimed that the prophet Eissa (Jesus) was gay and calls for Middle Eastern countries to allow gays to have sexual freedom.”

On the plus side, last month Elton did get the chance to perform with the Mayan pyramids.
