Gay-Friendly 'Queen James Bible' Released
The 'Queen James Bible' has been released and claims to have finally translated the Christian holy texts correctly, reports RT.com.
The Queen James Bible website states: “You can’t choose your sexuality, but you can choose Jesus. Now you can choose a Bible, too.”
“Homosexuality was first 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.”
“Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; eight verses in a book of thousands! The Queen James Bible seeks to resolve interpretive ambiguity in the Bible as it pertains to homosexuality: We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible."
Catholic.org states that the Queen James Bible “seeks to legitimize the homosexual equivalency movement by changing the language of the Bible. Unfortunately, what they have succeeded in doing is misrepresenting the word of God. Nowhere in Scripture does God condemn any of his children who come to him in loving faith."
"What scripture does condemn are specific immoral acts, including sexual congress outside the context of marriage which can only exist between one man and one woman.”
"In addition to changing scriptures throughout the Bible, the authors of the book claim that King James I was bisexual, despite the fact there is no concrete historical evidence to verify this. The claim that the Bible is imperfect is simply a postmodern assessment, the well-known by-product of a bankrupt worldview."
