LONDON, United Kingdom-Elton John the Candle in the Wind Singer in an interview with the Parade Magazine called Jesus of Nazareth gay, a claim which angered many Practicing Christians around the world as such a reference implied the Messiah was a person who preached water and drank wine.
The Catholic League President Bill Donohue commented it would be pointless to ask for an apology but Muslims around the world thought different.
"We will have to make a goat sacrifice of that cow" said Sheikh Munlal Birehi of the Jamia Mosque Nairobi after Friday prayers.
"Issa bin Maryam(s.a.w)[Jesus son of Mary(peace be upon him)] may not be our number one Prophet but he comes a strong second and he still is our prophet" added Birehi as he answered those he called "ignorant non-believers" who speculated what this had nothing to do with Muslims.
"i wish one of his fans, preferably a cartoonist had gone ahead and printed something on some widely circulating publication" said Buutay Dhaga-deele 25, a second generation Somali immigrant to reporters in Aalborg, Denmark.

But critics have condemned Buutay's remarks saying it had more to do with the pent up anger which to date remains unreleased after the Danish media somehow apologised about some cartoons some time back.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Birehi was preparing a proposal to declare a fatwa on the singer's head which is expected to reach he Chief Kadhi Sheikh Kassim before the end of the week.
Whilst it was mostly Muslims who came out in strong defence of Christ, most christian leaders defended their soft stance by claiming they always asked themselves and their congregations" what would jesus do?"
"Yeah right, and Elton John is straight" said Pat Robertson in his harshest terms yet.
