Rewriting History: New "Gay Friendly" Bible Published
Townhall.com ^ | December 14, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 12/14/2012 6:34:13 AM PST by Kaslin

The King James version of the Bible has been hijacked by gay activists who want to rewrite history. Anonymous editors have published a Bible "friendly to gays," and have edited eight major verses to fit their narrative. The "Queen James Bible" is available on Amazon and is described as, "A Gay Bible. The Queen James Bible is based on The King James Bible, edited to prevent homophobic misinterpretation." The description and reasoning for the changes is below.

Why We Chose the King James Version

We chose the 1769 form of the King James Bible for our revision for the following reasons:
1. The obvious gay link to King James, known amongst friends and courtiers as “Queen James” because of his many gay lovers.

2. No Bible is perfect, but everyone knows the King James Bible; It is arguably the most popular Bible in history and the basis of many other translations.

3. Most English Bible translations that actively condemn homosexuality have based themselves on the King James Version and have erroneously adapted its words to support their own agenda. We wanted to return to the clean source and start there.

4. Some claim the language of the KJV is antiquated, but we believe it is poetic, traditional, and ceremonial. Christianity is an ancient tradition, and the King James and resultant Queen James versions remind us and keep us connected to that tradition.
What We Changed

The Bible says nothing about homosexuality. However, there might be no other argument in contemporary faith as heated as what the Bible is interpreted to say about homosexuality.

The Bible is the word of God translated by man. This (saying nothing countless translations and the evolution of language itself) means the Bible can be interpreted in different ways, leading to what we call “interpretive ambiguity.” In editing The Queen James Bible we were faced with the decision to modify existing interpretively ambiguous language, or simply to delete it.

There are problems with removal of verses:
• It doesn’t address the problem of interpretive ambiguity, it only brushes it under the rug.
• It renders an incomplete Bible.
• Revelation says not to “edit the book,” and people often extend that to mean the entire Bible, not just the book of Revelation.

We also refused to just say “that’s outdated” and omit something. Yes, things like Leviticus are horribly outdated, but that doesn’t stop people from citing them. We wanted our Bible bulletproof from the ones shooting the bullets.

There are also problems with editing verses:

• The context, idiom, and grammar from the time are almost impossible to recreate. • Changes could further create interpretive ambiguity.

Many versions of the Bible translated and published since the King James Bible have changed the language, so the precedent had been set for editing. Furthermore, both problems with editing are easily addressed by deciding to make the edits as simple as possible.

We edited the Bible to prevent homophobic interpretations.

Although these editors are correct when they say the Bible is for interpretation, it is important to understand that interpretation isn't the same thing as rewriting history or changing scripture.

This is why I could not vote for a Mormon or a homosexual for that matter who "edits" God's Word.

Yep. And, there's a whole lot of Word editing going on out there, even in so-called "Christian" religions...

The gay bible is supposed to be read from the rear to the front. Probably blames homophobia as the reason Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed.

Yeah I know..I was carrying it to literal extremes.

One other verse the Queen James needs to address is where Serpent questions: Hath God said... because that’s what this is all about the queers can’t accept that the Word says what it means. We all know what trouble lies ahead heeding the Serpent.

They may find out too late.

“Serious, if meeting another dude and giving him a BJ is NOT a sin, then there is no such thing as a sexual sin.”

So I figure if Bill Clinton had gotten his infamous non-sexual BJ from a guy, he still wouldn’t be a sinner in the eyes of these editors?

Actually, I was challenged to find in the Bible where homosexual sin was especially worse than heterosexual sin. All I could find was that sexual sin was especially heinous because it is a sin against the body which is a temple of the Lord.

Not to be sticking up for queers, but I’m guilty of heterosexual sin making me no less guilty than the queers, only that I am repentant and forgiven by the power of Jesus’ blood do I get a pass.

Jesus is an equal opportunity forgiver. (I know you know, just stating for the record.)

This was a commandment direct from God. Your comments about being written by people with many flaws don’t apply here.

Right? Unless you think God was flawed in making that law.

As far as being executed; that was right and just at that time. Now - thanks to the Cross - there is not a physical death. But unless they repent and are saved, there is worse - an eternal death.

Not much sinning gets accomplished while fully clothed.

I heartily disagree. There is idolatry, perjury, murder, coveting... and indeed, if you were to think of the story of the Good Samaritan the people it implicitly condemned (the priest & Levite, both people who should be near God and God's heart, and as Jesus said elsewhere: it is sin for one who knows to do good and does it not) were full-clothed.

Is participation in a gross distortion of Gods Word that can potentially lead millions of souls astray a worse sin than individual transgressions. I would say yes...Jesus said it would be worse for the Pharisees, hypocrites. How, I. do not know nor wish to find out but this is a perilous thing to be involved in.

Yeah, I don’t think God made the “law” that homosexuals should be executed. Your contention that it was “right and just” to execute homosexuals “at that time” is beyond absurd. I tend to believe that executing a homosexual (by, say, chopping his head off) would be far more morally reprehensible than homosexuality itself. I’m pretty comfortable Jesus would agree.

The concept, I think, is of spiritual death, in the sense of Adam and Eve eating from the tree, or Cain mudering Abel. They were allowed to live on but from thence were flawed beings. These parables make sense in the world. Not to suggest that it didn’t happen, but there is no specific incident of execution for homosexuality in Torah.

Fascinating. There is a parallel. Jesus dealt with a sexual sin by telling the woman: "Go and sin no more." Did the woman deserve to be executed? Of course. Jesus did not dispute that. But - as I've said - he came and died on the cross to save sinners. Even adulterers and queers.

But as you know... The New Testament is filled with warnings regarding those who do not repent and believe. There is no more physical death, but there is certainly a spiritual death.

I would presume they chose King James NOT for the reasons given, buy because they don’t have to worry about copyright infringement, like they would for many other more modern and accurate versions.

I love the circular logic of claiming the bible says “nothing” about homosexuality, and then editing verses that do so they no longer do, pretending they are simply “correcting” misinterpretation.

I wonder if that also tried to “fix” the many verses in the bible that make it clear that marriage is for a man and a woman.

I agree, of course, the argument you are trying to make. But your supporting of evidence has one giant flaw:

The bible was only compiled a couple centuries AFTER Revelation was written. I’ll be the first on line to eviscerate the arguments of those who say that somehow challenges the validity of any book of the bible. But the problem is that for two centuries, people read Revelation outside of its current context, that being at the end of the bible. It’s precisely because Revelation was the last book to be universally accepted throughout the Christian church that is why that verse seems to refer to the entire bible.

A much better argument to be made would come from Mathew 5:18: “Amen, Amen, I say to you: Til heaven and earth pass away, neither one jot nor tittle shall in any way pass from the law, til all has been fulfilled.”

Truth will always be truth no matter how one tries to hide it or delete it. Changing the wording of what the Bible says about queers and their fate does not mean that they will not end up dead from the AIDS virus. Obama has said that he is a Christian and yet, I have not seen one single thing that he has said or done that would hint that he actually is one. That leaves us with “truth” , he is not a Christian.

Let’s take a wild guess here. The editors were from Sodom and Gomorrah.
In the new version, Lot’s wife is not turned into a pillar of salt. She and Lot are taken to a television studio to watch them film the next episode of Glee.””

Simply a reflection of degeneracy into animal-like behavior as coprophagic homosexuals seek to legitimize their filthy and disgusting behavior. Imagine what they have in store of other people’s children.

Actually it's not. That was in the Old Testament in which the people were given the Law. They were also given Judges to judge them. The reason for the Law was as part of a covenant with God's people so they would remain Holy. Through the Holy blood line, the Messiah would be born.

After the human Birth of Jesus, the Law was fulfilled and our sins were atoned for. "The Law is a curse." The Law was not destroyed, but it WAS fulfilled by Jesus. We no longer have a man to judge us under the Law, nor do we have a man to put mankind to death for adultery, homosexuality, etc. Our system of laws in this country are based on Judeo-Christian values which is is why we have capital punishment for capital offense.

That aside, Jesus will be our Witness at the Judgement; we will either be given death and eternal damnation or written into the Book of Life and granted immortal life with our Father in Heaven.

Just because you don't like what is written in the Bible and take issue with God's Word and Law.......doesn't mean that the Word is flawed.

And to answer your snarky question posed to another poster.....I believe that homosexuals should be shown the Truth and the Light so they may repent of their sins and be free of the death that awaits in their current sin. If they do not repent and turn from their sin, then Lord's Will be done; but it is not for me to judge them nor to put them to death.

"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

“After the human Birth of Jesus, the Law was fulfilled and our sins were atoned for.”

Like pretty much everything else you wrote, this sentence is completely at odds with Christian dogma. According to our faith, it was not the birth of Jesus which atoned for all sins, but his death. And of course, the incident with Mary Magdalene occurred prior to His death. What you wrote is simply a rationalization to overcome the uncomfortable implication that a passage from the old testament was not actually written by God, and in fact states something that is anathema to the teachings of Jesus.

The only true version is the Catholic Bible from what I was taught.....

That's right! That's right! Douai or go away ..... ;)

There are so many "versions" out there right now .... I've even seen so-called "King James" quotations that don't read at all like the KJV I knew back in the day, that I wouldn't even trust a KJV so-called that was put into print after about 1970. Just to be sure, I think we ought to make sure there is a reserve of old KJV's from the 19th century laid up somewhere where the catamites and sodomites can't get at them, and have extra copies set in new type and printed up on archival paper and bound in bulletproof, ageless bindings, and dispersed among the Christian and Buddhist monasteries of the world, so there'll always be at least one good copy out there in a lamasery somewhere, no matter how diligently the PC Police and HomoBibleScrubbers try to eliminate all copies of the old Good Book.

They have a LOT more work to do...

Starting with the entire story about Sodom & Gomorrah.

I've read an interpretation of the story of the destruction of those cities, unfortunately, I don't remember the source. It explained the destruction was the result of God being angry at the citizens because they failed to show hospitality to the visitors (Angels), Lot being the only one who did.

My interpretation and most other peoples, among the literate, is that, those Angels were sent there with the express purpose of destroying those cities and to rescue Lot and his family because of the evil nature of the cities, they were not sent to find out which citizens were hospitable and which were not. The mob that tried to "know" Lot's visitors further proved the nature of that evil, (Homosexuality).

Woe to people who try to pervert the very word of God, their end is certain and it ain't pretty.

The greatest irony here is their basis for doing what they did.

2. No Bible is perfect, but everyone knows the King James Bible; It is arguably the most popular Bible in history and the basis of many other translations.

Two points:

- Anything that is based on manuscripts is a translation. Anything based on another translation is called a transliteration.
- I am awed at the miracle the Bible represents. Manuscripts were painstakingly copied one letter at a time and if there was a single mistake, the entire manuscript was thrown away. They would count the letters on each line and, by giving each letter a number, check the total for each line, thus further assuring the accuracy. The most ancient of manuscripts differ in only minute detail (a letter here or there) from those used for translations like the King James Bible. So, the fact is that God has miraculously preserved His Word. These gays (I mean guys) have perverted it!
