‘Queen James Bible’ Catered To Gays Courts Controversy

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

The “Queen James Bible” that has recently been released purports to be based on the King James Bible version and is being touted as the “first-ever gay Bible in the world,” reports the Daily Mail.

The “Queen James Bible” is said to offer an unbiased explanation of all of the standard biblical verses that pertain to homosexuality.

“Homosexuality was first overtly 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,” according to the book’s editors.“The Queen James Bible addresses those controversial verses by editing them very slightly for interpretive clarity. The edits all confirm that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality, and therefore renders such interpretations impossible.”The publication of the revisionist interpretation of the holy word comes at a time when same-sex marriage is being hotly debated throughout the country. The bound book, which is being sold online for $34.95, oddly enough does not explain how it germinated, nor is a publisher, editor, or translator listed anywhere.

Below are some translations from the King James version and the corresponding vesre from the ‘Queen James’ version:

Jude 1:7 (King James):

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Jude 1:7 (Queen James):

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after nonhuman flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Genesis 19:5 (King James):

And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, ‘Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

Genesis 19:5 (Queen James):

And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may rape and humiliate them.
