(The Independent) A controversial Fox Business host has risked sparking anger after he said during his programme that there was “some indication” that “Jesus may have been gay”.

Don Imus made the comment on his show earlier this week during a telephone interview with political analyst Kirsten Powers.

According to the Pink News website Mr Imus referred to a 3rd-century religious text known as the “Gospel of Judas Iscariot” and claimed it provided evidence that Jesus was a homosexual.
