Religious News: The Queen James Bible

A recently released Bible translation based off of the King James Bible boasts of being the first ever "Gay Bible" in the world.
Titled the Queen James Bible, its publishers argued in a statement that it accurately translates certain verses pertaining to homosexuality, which have been misunderstood by religious conservatives.
"Homosexuality was first overtly mentioned in the Bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version. There is no mention of or reference to homosexuality in any Bible prior to this – only interpretations have been made," said the editors.
"The Queen James Bible addresses those controversial verses by editing them very slightly for interpretive clarity. The edits all confirm that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality, and therefore renders such interpretations impossible."

The Christian Post.
What an insane, insulting and pointless exercise.
Taking out the anti-gay bits from the Bible is as obscene as excising anti-semitism from Mein Kapf.
Piss off back to Sodom.

PS Here's the great homo historian Rictor Norton on that big ole queen, King James. Rictor's whole website is required reading for the modern homosexual.
