    Not that I'm religious, but this article actually bothers me. The far right is actually re-writing the Bible because they say it's too liberal. Here's the article, and to what I refer as, today's dose of crazy.

    I liked it better when Thomas Jefferson did it.

    Yeah, I read this article, too. Not content with cherry-picking what they like from the Bible, the fundies will simply rewrite it to suit their agenda. And done by amateurs, not even experts in this field. Well, when you already know what you want it to say, who needs trained professionals? icon_razz.gif

    Yeah and I love the part about professors, who translate things, being liberal. I'm thinking... there's a reason for that.

    This is fucking ridiculous. Makes me sick. I am religious, and I have to say I don't believe in half the shit the bible says for this very reason. Men have turned the bible into a tool of hatred, and not something of love. The far right is just a bunch of babies.

    Somewhere in the King James Bible it speaks about the word (written by men) was inspired and influenced by the Holy Ghost. Was not able to find it at this moment. So now they have decided to change it because it is liberal. We the American people are not capable of deciding for ourselves the content of the Bible? According to the article even Conservative Theologians are doubting this group of Amateurs.
    Thanks for this thread.
