I love when somebody tries to tell me they know what a person from thousands of years ago thought, wanted or what kind of actions they may or may not have taken.
Especially people's whose only historical recording was created decades after they died.
Sure. You bet.
Could he have been?
Could he not have been?
Does it really matter in the grand scheme of things?
ETA: Besides all of that, the inherent bias in this research is very apparent. You'll find anything you want in scripture if you already know what outcome you wish to have.

That's one thing about the Bible that most folks don't know. If you're saved, you receive explanations about scripture from God that unsaved folks don't get. That's why the Bible sounds so crazy to non-believers. They aren't meant to understand the scriptures like a saved person would. So, yes, you can take anything you can imagine from a Bible verse if you aren't privy to the real meaning of God's word.

Oh Good Grief!
It won't stop. This drive to remake the world in the gay image is starting to get old.
You're gay. Deal with it and move on. Live your life and do your own great things, and then the world will know about it and you can make sure they know it was because you were gay.
There are plenty of gay people you can look up to already.
I thought it would be right up ATS' alley (pun intended)...

The handjob notion didn't come out of nowhere (pun intended)...
It came from the Professor who claimed that John had a hand in Jesus' underwear...
It's actually what he says to validate his hypothesis, I thought it pertinent to share his scientific explanation for his fringe theory.
