Was Jesus Gay?

Okay, take this with a grain of salt; it comes from a gay news source (via J. Orlin Grabbe), but it is pretty damned interesting reading:

Noted Methodist theologian Rev. Theodore Jennings Jr. and Dr Morton Smith a world renowned Bible scholar at Columbia University say there is irrefutable evidence that Jesus was at least bisexual. Dr Rollan McCleary of the University of Queensland, in Australia, says he has discovered through his research that three of the disciples were gay.
