    Ehhhhh I dunno about this one. I don't think you should be able to sue over this. It's freedom of speech in my opinion. The Bible is fiction anyway, so in my opinion they can alter it however they want: it's still a fairytale.

    Guess he'll have to take on Islam next.. But that might be a bit dangerous, so he should just stick to going after Christianity. Its easier and safer lmfao.

    He's a private citizen, so it isn't censorship if he forces a withdrawal of the objectionable text. I'm surprised, not being much of a Bible reader myself, in the widely differing translations. If he has the cash to pursue these cases, more power to him. I'm all in favor of making the right justify itself as much as possible in court and making them spend their money to do so.

    The verse here in question concerns 1 Corinthians 6:9 which according to the KJV says, "...nor abusers with themselves with mankind...will inherit the Kingdom of God."

    According to the Interlinear Greek/English New Testament, the actual Greek word found in the original manuscript is "arsenokoitai" which is translated "sodomites".

    Whether our word "arse-hole" was derived from this Greek word or not, I don't know. But it describes a particular action rather than a state of being. Whether one is born gay, or it was something stemming from early childhood, the actual sex act is something done entirely out of choice. Nobody is forced into a sexual relationship. (Being raped is not a relationship, it is abuse) Rather it is up to each individual whether to have sex or not. So what Paul was condemning here was the act itself, made by one's own choice. To be condemned for a state of being is grossly unfair, like one who has Downs Syndrome being thrown into Hell just because he has Downs Syndrome.

    The guy who wants to sue the publishers is a total prat and just wants to make himself rich. If he had just an ounce of intelligence, he would see that whether he goes to Hell or not lies entirely in his power - his choice to have sex with another man or not.

    Thinking Christians are interested in what the Bible actually says, not merely what it is presumed to teach.

    Christianity destroyed for us the whole harvest of ancient civilization, and later it also destroyed for us the whole harvest of Mohammedan civilization. The wonderful culture of the Moors in Spain, which was fundamentally nearer to us and appealed more to our senses and tastes than that of Rome and Greece, was trampled down (—I do not say by what sort of feet—) Why? Because it had to thank noble and manly instincts for its origin—because it said yes to life, even to the rare and refined luxuriousness of Moorish life! The crusaders later made war on something before which it would have been more fitting for them to have grovelled in the dust—a civilization beside which even that of our nineteenth century seems very poor and very "senile."[...] Intrinsically there should be no more choice between Islam and Christianity than there is between an Arab and a Jew. The decision is already reached; nobody remains at liberty to choose here. Either a man is a Chandala or he is not.... “War to the knife with Rome! Peace and friendship with Islam!”: this was the feeling, this was the act, of that great free spirit, that genius among German emperors, Frederick II.
    Sec. 60
    I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty — I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind.
    Sec. 62

    The same can be said of islam to , epecially islam

    If he loses, which he will, he will end up paying all the court costs for the defendent.
