Recently there was the release of the Jamaican Patois Bible which is considered absolutely ridiculous and ignorance by some and lauded by others. Patois is NOT a language as the publishers claim just as 'cockney' or 'gypsy' are not and would be just as stupid to try to spell.
Now there is a 'gay' interpreted bible called the "Queen James" version. It has been somewhat edited to represent god as loving all people and nothing to indicate separating or killing gays as depicted in the old testament.
Through time the bible has be re-interpreted numerous times to suit the values of the ruling establishment and each time it has served to execute a level of evil. When men were dominant in the society, the bible was written to label Mary Magdalene as as lowly prostitute and therefore undesirable. It promoted the murder of anyone who didn't believe in their god Exodus 32 v27 - v29 along with many other oppressive acts which were perpetrated during the Spanish Inquisition.
The developers of gay bible claims that the executive producer of the long standing King James Version (KJV), King James the first, was bisexual and was called "Queen James" by colleagues so this publication is a honor to his lifestyle.
This is an excerpt from the book description at the point of sale at Amazon
The Queen James Bible is based on The King James Bible, edited to prevent homophobic misinterpretation.
Homosexuality in The Bible
Homosexuality was first 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. Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!
The Queen James Bible seeks to resolve interpretive ambiguity in the Bible as it pertains to homosexuality: We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible.
Who is Queen James?
The King James Bible is the most popular Bible of all time, and arguably the most important English language document of all time. It is the brainchild and namesake of King James I, who wanted an English language Bible that all could own and read. The KJV, as it is called, has been in print for over 400 years and has brought more people to Christ than any other Bible translation. Commonly known to biographers but often surprising to most Christians, King James I was a well-known bisexual. Though he did marry a woman, his many gay relationships were so well-known that amongst some of his friends and court, he was known as "Queen James." It is in his great debt and honor that we name The Queen James Bible so.
Of course this is met with much resistance and condemnation by fundamental christians. What do you think?
