    If they went ahead and used the damned oldest scriptures they have- the dead sea scrolls, and included the shit that they freaking left out in King James' days, then I would be all for it.

    I am NOT all for them changing an already inaccurate and incomplete English translation of scripture.

    Scripture is scripture- and the only REAL and TRUE scripture left is the stuff in the scrolls...

    XOXO
    Agnostic for a reason..

    They care about "gender" when they have stories like "Noah's Ark"? That stuff is pure fantasy. You have to be incredibly gullible to believe Noah and Samson and Jonah. Come on.

    Funny, King James:

    Was King James Gay? | The Smirking Chimp

    “Those who practice homosexuality should swiftly be put to death by the government. God emphatically condemns the practice of exchanging proper gender characteristics among men and women. God justly calls for the death-penalty for anyone who practices homosexuality.”

    Would fundamentalist Christians put King James to death? After all, his subjects joked "Elizabeth was King: now James is Queen."

    Anti-gay fundamentalists might not like to hear it but just listen to what King James wrote to George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham: "I naturally so love your person, and adore all your other parts, which are more than ever one man had." James also wrote Villiers that "I desire only to live in the world for your sake."

    Before the Privy Council James boldly defended their relationship by saying that he was “neither a god nor an angel, but a man, like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess to loving those dear to me more than other men. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had John, and I have George."

    I love your "parts". Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha

    I'm still looking for the GOP's involvement in this proposed revision.

    I guess it just 'sounded good' for a title. :rolleyes:

    Christian conservatives were a group created out of the GOP.

    Just more proof that Repugnicans are getting stupider every day!

    There are plenty of evangelical Democrats; your rationale is nonsensical.

    Sounds to me like they can make whatever changes they want. Its their version of the Bible. I don't know how many different versions there are but I doubt its big news that revisions are being done to one version of the Bible.

    I don't see how the GOP is involved in any way. Just because a majority of these particular Christians may be party members doesn't mean the GOP is responsible for it. Are the democrats repsonsible for all the actions of ACORN?

    Not the most accurate. If you want a very accurate translation try the Holmann Christian Standard Bible. It's a translation done by very conservative evangelicals who are biblical literalists. They even note where there are differences in manuscripts.

    I disagree with fundamentalists, but having been one in the past, I know that nobody would be more careful translating the "inerrant word of God" than them.
