No, he didn’t say “gay,” but anyone with a shred of intelligence could see where he was going. To defend him, and to go as far as to suggest it wasn’t even worthy of the word joke, is beyond stupidity.

The church tells us that to move toward justice we that government has to be about the common good. What’s more common good then health care for the sick, an end to abortion, and a move to end poverty. What churches do for the people is charity that is great but justice means transformation of the society and that is only achieved by government change. SO WE DO NEED UNIVERSAL CHRISTIAN HEALTHCARE!!!!

I think that the interview revealed Moore to be a well-intentioned activist. He seems to consider himself to be a champion of the downtrodden.

However, my gripe with Moore is that he seems to lack any understanding of basic economics. His proposals for economic reform are simply retreads of economic ideas that have failed time and again over the last 150 years.

If Moore would take the time to study economic theory and history, he might do “Moore” good.

Uh huh” (the audience laughed at the uh-huh, he put a slight emphasis on “male” but then he continued. the joke (if you can even call it that) wasn’t very explicit and was about 5 seconds long never did he say “gay” and he didnt even let the line hang for long he kept talking in the midst of the sparse laughs.

As far as I can tell this has its roots in this apparent parody:
http://weeklyworldnews.com/headlines/38966/michael-moore-jesus-was-gay/

I don’t see this cited by anyone who was there. But it’s…

…on Fox News:
http://nation.foxnews.com/michael-moore/2011/10/03/michael-moore-jokes-jesus-was-gay

…and in National Catholic Register:
http://www.ncregister.com/blog/michael-moore-jokes-about-jesus-being-gay…at-georgetown/

Did this happen? Or is this a bunch of people mistaking parody for fact?

“I call it Christianized medicine,” Moore said of a system like that which Canada employs. “What do you think Jesus would do?”
Jesus healed people Himself, but I can’t find where He said Rome(government) was supposed to. It was however churches that started hospitals, and churches that started schools…..Umm seems like government has already “fixed” those “broken” church institutions, how much “Moore fixing” does Michael want the government to do?
