Pope Francis should be canonized for reaching out to gay people, says Elton John.
British singer says the pontiff’s attempt to change Catholic church is ‘formidable’ as he hosts annual Aids benefit concert
Sir Elton John has called Pope Francis his “hero” for his compassionate drive to accept gay people in the Catholic church.
At John’s annual Aids benefit concert in New York City, the singer said Francis was pushing boundaries in the church and told the crowd: “Make this man a saint now, OK?”
“Ten years ago one of the biggest obstacles in the fight against Aids was the Catholic church. Today we have a pope that speaks out about it,” said John, earning cheers from the attendees at Cipriani’s on Wall Street.
Catholic bishops scrapped their landmark welcome to gays earlier this month, showing deep divisions at the end of a two-week meeting sought by Francis to chart a more merciful approach to ministering to Catholic families.

It is surely much easier for become a “sir” than to become a Roman Catholic “saint”.
Elton John is not concerned about Cannon law. Nor the Word of God. This homosexual singer just want to praise a Pope that do not call homosexuality a sin, and do not call gays to repent.
Since the Pope is considered infallible in matters of declaring that a “saint” has reached heaven, he can not make him self a saint. Simply by being present on Earth. Only a departed soul can be canonized. His remains in the grave has to be exhumed, the bones examined, and two witnesses must have come forward. They must both testify that a miracle has taken place, after they asked for the intersession of the departed soul. If miracles can not be confirmed, the Pope can not declare that the soul has entered the Kingdom of Heaven.
That all this stuff amount to blasphemy against the Word of God, is neither a concern for Elton John, nor the Pope.
The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists.
The Bible says NO MAN shall ask a departed soul for consultation and intersession. We are called to leave the dead to God the Father. Make your prayers to the living God only. The only name a Christian shall use, is the name of Yeshua the Messiah. (Jesus).
‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.”
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
That the Pope has become a “hero” for Sir Elton John, will surly create enthusiasm among lesbians, homosexuals, transsexuals and other perverts. But among Evangelical Christians it is just another sign that the Pope is a lawless man, who do not represent God of the Bible.
May all homosexuals be told what the Bible says about their rebellion. May they ask Jesus the Messiah to change them, so they will get a desire to sleep with the opposite sex, swear an oat of marriage and stay faitfull to their life partner as husband and wife. Amen.
