Gay Editors Create 'Queen James' Bible
6 months ago
References to homosexuality are amended.
A group of gay editors has come together to create a new version of the Bible, the "Queen James Bible."
According to the editor's notes on the official website:
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.
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.
And the whole "Queen James" thing? Well, according to the editors, the phrase is an "obvious" link because everybody knows that King James had gay lovers.
The "Queen James Bible" doesn't necessarily rewrite the entire scripture. Instead, it only made changes to eight specific verses that are usually used to condemn homosexuality.
