Irked by his controversial remarks about Jesus Christ, Egypt’s Music Union has banned musician Elton John from performing there later this month.

John, a homosexual, suggested in an interview in February, that Jesus was a “super-intelligent gay man”. He then took digs at the Middle East, stating, “Try being a gay woman in the Middle East — you’re as good as dead.”
