Just wondering if Cliff Richard is actually gay, but doesn't go with men because he's Christian and God mentions in the 10 Commandments he won't tolerate homosexual behaviour?

If so, it does seem a shame and unfair, as he can't exactly help which sex he prefers and he seems like a very nice person.

Why do you want to know? Do you fancy him?

Which commandment is that then?

Does it matter ? He seems happy which is what counts IMO.

He always seems totally asexual, just as well as I can't see anyone fancying him.

I suppose it would matter if he was some sort of anti gay bigot, but he has always been very discreet about his personal life. Bless him and his awful songs!

THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY

This Commandment is to allow men to better understand that wrong use of bodily communication with other men has a definite disgrace in God's Plan. Promiscuous involvement to satisfy only the senses has many areas wherein men sin against their role in God's Plan. This Commandment definitely says that homosexuality, lesbianism, abortion, pornography, and all promiscuous endeavors of man, have a permissiveness that is against the reason for creating mankind.

you're not allowed to ponder who might be gay, as "it doesnt matter". And even if you are aware that it doesnt matter, its not going to change your opinion and you're just being nosey [like me, i am nosey and like to know whos a neighbour in the gaybourhood] you cant ask!!! See some of the replies above.

He does a good job of keeping his private life exactly that.

I'm sure it'll all come out when he's dead. At this rate that won't be for another 50 years.

If he was out there condemning gay people I'd maybe look closer at his friendship with a live-in ex vicar. But who really cares?

It annoys me that he's not 'out and proud.'

But not as much as he annoys me for being a total wassock.

I thought he'd more or less admitted it last year?

Years ago, nobody pondered whether celebs were gay or not. Rock Hudson played a womanising hearthrob all his career without any speculation at all. Who knew! Also Liberace (yes, he was gay!!!) didn't bandy his gayness about even though he was probably the gayest perfornmer ever. Actors, like Kenneth Williams and Frankie Howerd actually caricatured gayness without revealing their own sexuality.

These days there is so much emphasis on whether a person is gay or not, as if it mattered or made any difference whatsoever to their talent. People see a gay/straight person instead of just a person. Celebs like John Barrowman annoy me when they are on chat shows and constantly advertise their homosexuality. I don't care what you do under the covers dear, just don't frighten the horses!

His sexuality is his business. If he wants it to remain private. We should respect that.

I disagree, he's a genuine person IMO, loves to entertain and make people happy and not up his own arse like a lot of celebs are. He's just one of those people that has always taking a slagging such as Noel Edmonds, Les Dennis, etc.

I think it's great that he has managed to keep his private life pretty private, and I do think it's totally his own business if he fancies men, women or nobody in particular. I would always have said he probably just hadn't met the right woman and so was a straight single christian bloke ... except that recently it did come out about him sharing his life / house with some catholic priesty type bloke. This may have been totally platonic and more for companionship, or it may have been a full on relationship ... we'll probably never know, which is absolutely fine. I'm proud of him for being so discreet about his personal life and not giving media interviews every 5 minutes like some zelebs.

Spooky, I just found that link and was about to post it here.
Sir Cliff, 67, who has refused to answer questions about his sexuality for decades, reveals in his newly published autobiography that Father John McElynn, with whom he lives, is his “companion”.
Case closed.

If he is and ignores his sexuality because of his religious beliefs then surely that's his own choice to make.


And how on earth did I end up on showbiz?

I don't care if he's gay, I just hope I never hear his music again.

Oh dear, this is only according the people who wrote the website, nothing to do with what was said in the bible about us gayers.

Adultery, you should look it up.
