The Queen James Bible is doing for the church what gay marriage rights have done for many states, making religiously accessible without discrimination. The bible, which was just recently released for sale, features the teachings of the the scriptures in a gay and lesbian friendly manner.
The homosexual friendly bible does not list editors by name, and, on Amazon, the book’s publisher is simply noted as “Queen James. ”
Located at QueenJamesBible.com, the book’s editors write:
“The Queen James Bible resolves any homophobic interpretations of the Bible, but the Bible is still filled with inequality and even contradiction that we have not addressed. No Bible is perfect, including this one. We wanted to make a book filled with the word of God that nobody could use to incorrectly condemn God’s LGBT children, and we succeeded.”
In some cases, the Queen James Bible editors say they have simply corrected gay hate wording added to the bible in recent memory. For example, QueenJamesBible.com notes that the word “homosexual” wasn’t included in the bible until 1946.
While the bible’s editors did not delete passages, they did make changes to the eight most cited passages used to spread hate speech against homosexuals. According to the editors, the passages were amended “in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible.”
The bible’s editors explain why they chose the King James version of the bible for their Queen James Bible edition:
“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.”
