The 'Queen' James Bible - Apostasy Gone to Seed
Virtue Online ^ | 12-30-12 | Dr. David R. Reagan

Posted on 12/31/2012 9:05:25 AM PST by ReformationFan

You will have to see it to believe it, and you can see it at The Queen James Bible - A Gay Bible. What I'm talking about is a new "Gay Bible" that was published in December 2012. The very people who put this abomination together have dubbed it The Queen James Bible. The name they have given it is based on two things. First, the text of the bible is the King James Version as it existed in 1769 (why that date is never explained).

Second, they argue that reputaby King James was a bisexual who had many gay lovers - hence, the Queen James Version.

This perverted "bible" is not a new translation, nor is it even a new paraphrase. Again, it is the King James Version. The only thing different about it is that those who published it simply rewrote the eight verses in the Old and New Testaments that specifically condemn homosexual behavior. The "bible" features a rainbow colored cross on the cover - the colors that have been adopted as the symbol of the LGBT Movement (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender). The paperback edition currently sells on Amazon.com for $34.95.

Clothed in Mystery

The background of the "bible" is mysterious. No publisher is identified, nor are any editors mentioned by name.

The story of this alleged "translation" is a few weeks old but I found this quote interesting:

'The background of the "bible" is mysterious. No publisher is identified, nor are any editors mentioned by name.'

If they're so "proud" of what they have done and stand for, then why wouldn't the publisher and editors want to be identified? Very telling indeed.

I cannot even take the ASB or NLT translations. KJV only. My kids have NIV until they are a bit older and then I give them all a KJV.

All those “extreme student” translations also are not allowed in my home.

I bet Soros has some ties to this.

(1) The 1769 text is a standardized one, because no two copies of the KJV before that date were the same.

It was basically an attempt by Oxford printers to create a uniform version.

99% of KJV Bibles in print are the 1769 edition.

(2) King James did have a very questionable personal life. but he was not directly involved in doing the translating.

Homosexuality was well known in the ancient world. So there is no reason to believe that the original Greek and Hebrew texts would be vague or misleading.

Just another attempt to dictate morality to God.

Any particular reason, or do you just feel like saying something nasty about him?

If the latter, why not stick with, y’know, facts?

Crap like this is why I post less and less on FR.

“King James did have a very questionable personal life. but he was not directly involved in doing the translating.”

Indeed. In retrospect, I wish they had named the translation something along the lines of “The Royal English Bible” or “The English Reformation Bible” instead. That way, it would take some focus off who happened to be the monarch at the time.

And the very same type of people want to rewrite The Constitution to fit their needs as they see fit. The truth isthe truth no matter how you try o twist it. Why can’t these idiot liberals see that?

Settle down, Frances. I didn't know you loved Soros so much.

While you settle down, consider the fact that Soros has pushed his agenda for an "open society" which includes gay marriage and using drugs. He's also funded some of the most radical far left groups ever. It would not surprise me if he back rolled this little project using one of front groups.

Kind of funny given the “Queen” James rumors.

I am waiting to see the KKV.
That’s the “King Kong Version” which omits all prohibitions against bestiality.

Just a couple of lines in Exodus and Deuteronomy.
Snip. Snip.

The true Bible of the Reformation in England was the Geneva Bible.

The Puritans and the Nonconformists did not fully embrace the KJV until after the Restoration.

The KJV is really "The Anglican Bible" since it was translated to be appealing to proto-High, Low and Broad Church factions in the C of E.

Andrewes (High), Rainolds (Low) and Barlow (Broad) were a very representative cross-section.

That was kind of low, and reinforces Xenalyte's point.

The typical left strategy is to accuse first and worry about little things like proof or details later.

Xenalyte's point (I think) is that a major reason for spending time on FR (for me, anyway) has been finding comments by posters about current events that reveal interesting facts and reasoned arguments ignored by the media outlets that are reporting on those events.

With tons of random posters who have no real information just shouting out hunches randomly with no supporting data, the site just gets less engaging and productive.

Well does this blasphemy allow us to pour into the streets and kill a few people or maybe attack an embassy or maybe a Broadway play, or tear up some throw pillows?

Seems the fags want to get into bed with the 6th century sand monkeys and make up a religion.

I don’t know why Christians are giving this air time. It’s like some of the works that have showed up in art galleries. It’s written by those who are deliberately trying to sling mud at the cross of Christ. And it’s talked about by atheistic jounalists who want a good laugh or to pour scorn on the moral values of the church. Is this anything new? This book is nothing but pornographic material in my mind.

No one’s going to buy this book. A few gays may buy it for a laugh but does anybody think they go to church? In the end it will go away-except for the judgment that awaits the person who wrote it. In due time their foot shall slip.

Officially, it is the “Authorized Version.”

The “King James” title evidently arouse informally and was adopted by convention; I don’t think it is considered an official title.

I grew up in the 60's and 70's when all this nonsense was really getting going. Remember the "Living" Bible? Kind of like the "Living" Constitution. A blank check for perversion.

Some of the newer translations used corrupted (redacted) manuscripts, and because of that, there are entire passages missing. If you have an NIV handy, go look up Acts 8:37.

And rumors it is in spades.

Homos try to rewrite reality to make everyone a little "gay." So now we have Lincoln, Madison, Harrison, The 12 Apostles and Paul, Michelangelo and even Jesus being a little light in the loafers according to our Sodomite re-educators.

Get a grip people! If I were to post a thread, sure, I would post facts/links what ever but I replied to a thread which means I can leave a comment like so many people do( on this site and others ).

From my understanding, it was heavily rumored even in Elizabeth’s court. Of course he fathered children, but many gay men live lives of being gay in secret with families of their own.

These people can do whatever they want. That doesn’t change what is.
Their perversion is only a temporary sidetrack to what is real.
If we stop to give them a notice, we stall the progression of mankind toward a normal end.
We should only treat this as a piece of tissue rolling down the street.

Soros is about as leftist as they come making a fortune through crony capitalism and unethical manipulation. With his fortune he funds a majority of that which conservatives oppose.

His eventual death will be celebrated by many on the right.

The homosexual sex practitioners have no principles save those they fabricate to make themselves feel better about what they choose to disgustingly engage in.

...and on the eighth day the fairy queen said let there be anal lube and the leftist fairies organized the lubrication community and informed them that it was good. The leftists, RINOs, and libertarians all joined in spreading the lube far and wide proclaiming that lubrication justice and orifice diversity had finally been realized by the great anus of man who they worship to this day...

It is named the King James Authorized version, because King James authorized that this translation was the one to be published. Yes there were other translations at the time, some of them in English, but this was the one that was authorized during his reign.

Remember it, I still have a copy of it. My favorite verse is Luke 1:28 Gabriel appears to her and said, "Congratulations, favored lady! The Lord is with you."

Why didn't they just translate it to "Howdy"?

People are going to buy this book, but for only one reason - to make a statement. There’s nothing wrong with making a statement per se, but that is not what the Bible is for.

Exactly. There hasn’t been real substantive discussion on here in a good long while. It’s all bumper-sticker slogans (mostly misspelled), contrived one-liners, and what the posters clearly think are insulting zingers.
