A reported link between the Vatican and a film celebrating Sir Elton John has resurfaced after the church released a controversial decision on same-sex unions.
Various media reports indicate the Vatican invested some 1 million Euros in the film “Rocketman” which has been described as the first major studio film to depict a male gay sex scene on screen.
Earlier this week, the Vatican’s doctrine office said the Church could not bless same-sex unions as God “cannot bless sin,” a declaration apparently approved by Pope Francis.
Sir Elton himself is wondering how the Vatican can refuse to bless gay marriages yet happily make a profit from investing millions in a film which celebrates him finding happiness from his marriage to Scarborough-born David Furnish.
The 75-year old music legend has accused the Vatican of “hypocrisy.”
