The ‘Queen James' Gay Bible Now Sold on Amazon

According to many scholars, the passages found in Genesis and Leviticus that condemn homosexuality were not always a part of the King James Bible. Instead, they were added in 1943.

Thankfully, a new interpretation of the sacred text dubbed The “Queen James Bible” is now available on Amazon – sans those anti-gay additions – in an attempt to usher in an era of tolerant Christianity.

Yay, we say unto thee, this fabulous Bible is described thus:

The King James Bible is the most popular Bible of all time, and arguably the most important English language document of all time. The brainchild and namesake of King James I, who wanted an English language Bible that all could own and read, it 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.

4. WOW! "Homosexuality was first mentioned in the Bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version.

However, prior to that, there is no mention of or reference to homosexuality in any Bible that was previously printed."

So...the question arises ~ why have "christians" and their cops been condemning, persecuting, imprisoning, and murdering LGBTs for centuries?

6. Same reason as enslaving Black people

Killing "brown" people. And exterminating "red" people.

Fear of that which is different and a desire to be better off than another.
