That would go against the very essence of Christianity. Christ doesn't force Himself on anyone, and nothing I said indicates such an absurd notion, so spare me any strawmen.

I can see we share a similar view on the essence of Christianity. I would go a bit further and say that any idea of forced salvation or worship comes straight from Satan.

Baloney. Secular humanists would love nothing more! And our govt is FULL OF THEM. My freedom is being eroded more every day!

I'd agree on many fronts. But I haven't seen any recent movement to restrict religious freedom. How is that being done?

That's right - ENTIRELY SUITABLE. Is it now not suitable? Who says so? Some black-robed humanist moron?

There are thousands of books more suitable now. The KJV is not exactly "See Dick run. Run Dick run." Assuming the objective is to teach reading.

With all due respect, are you blind? How many court rulings do you need me to cite? There are dozens. And there are many more pending! The courts!

I was not arguing for any particluar version, just the bible in general. However, I believe the Geneva bible was the version of choice at that time. I think the NASB is the most accurate today.

I think the objective is to instill moral character, not teach reading.
