Elton banned in Egypt
Elton John has been banned in Egypt. In fact, he is banned in all Muslim countries. The reason: he is a declared homosexual.
I think Elton is the best or one of the best songwriters of the current generation. His Lions King and the Circle of Life songs made people cry in the cinema. The pinball wizard in Tommy was a revelation. While I believe that a person who dies without issue is a loss for humanity, Elton added to human wealth and his life is not wasted. Muslim bigotry is unjust, stupid and selfdefeating.
