         A doctoral candidate in Australia was paid $51,000 in public funds 
to research Jesus' sexuality, declaring unequivocally that the founder of 
Christianity was homosexual.

         According to a report in the Adelaide Advertiser, Rollan McCleary, 
who himself is homosexual, earned $17,000 a year for three years to work on 
his thesis on homosexual spirituality. The grant came from the University 
of Queensland.

         McCleary will be awarded his doctorate tomorrow and in the future 
hopes to make "gay spirituality" a separate academic discipline.

         Besides determining the sexual orientation of Jesus, McCleary's 
research claims three or four of Christ's disciples also were homosexual.

         "The starting point is the matter of John, who always referred to 
himself as Jesus' beloved disciple," McCleary told the Australian paper.

         According to the Advertiser, he claims Jesus' astrological chart, 
clues in the Scriptures to which churches had been blind and accurate 
biblical translations all played a part in his conclusions.

         McCleary also believes homosexuals find it easier to be Christian. 
"You don't have to be gay to be Christian, but it would be easier," he told 
the paper. The researcher says homosexuals are more inclined to be 
visionary and "open to the transcendent. If you assume that Christ was 
incarnate, there are perfect theological and mystical reasons to point to 
his sexuality," McCleary concluded.

         McCleary says he is an Anglican and is described by the Advertiser 
as a "qualified reader of astrological charts."
