    Default Elton John feels like 'second-class citizen'

    "In this country, we need more dialogue," he said during an interview Friday. "We don't need any more stone throwing. We don't need any more vitriol. We need people to say, 'OK. I'm straight. You're gay. Let's get along. I'm Republican. You're Democratic. Let's work together.' I'm sick and tired of people being hateful to each other in this country."
    "Everyone is entitled to have their own beliefs and their own spirituality," said John. "The big difference is that the dogma of the church can be so hateful and divisive. It's stuck in the stone age. We don't live in the stone age anymore. The church is losing people left, right and center because people are fed up with the rhetoric that they're giving them."

    Most of what Elton John says here is great, especially that first quote. However, it sounds a little whiny for someone who is idolized like Sir Elton John is to complain about being treated "second-class".

    The solution would be for him to not come here anymore. Then he would never feel that way.

    Not to mention the fact that he isn't even a citizen of the US to begin with.

    That is irrelevant to the discussion as the term second class citizen does not imply you are a citizen of any country. It is about how you are treated in society.

    Someone needs to hold that tiny dancer a little bit closer.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
