'Gay' man sues Bible publisher for 'mental anguish'
WND ^

Posted on 09/09/2009 7:39:28 PM PDT by traumer

$10 million sought for 'negative connotation' toward homosexuals

A homosexual man is suing a third national Bible publisher for "mental anguish" after he says the company published Bibles with a negative connotation toward homosexuals.

Bradley LaShawn Fowler of Canton, Mich., alleges William Tyndale Publishing manipulated Scripture when it published Tyndale’s New Living Translation Holy Bible and the New Life Application Study Bible by using the term "homosexuals" in a New Testament passage, 1 Corinthians 6:9.

"One Bible dictates homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God, while the other is completely void on the issue altogether," Fowler wrote in a statement on his blog.

This homoprobe and his lawyers should all be taken out and shot. Our courts have better things to do than screw around with frivolous lawsuits.

He should sue God. Believers didn't write the Bible. God did.

May the Almighty God reveal himself to this man, and change his heart and life.

The Bible has NEVER been devoid of the issue. Lays it out quite plainly:

9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, (NLT)

9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,(KJV)

9Or (A)do you not know that the unrighteous will not (B)inherit the kingdom of God? (C)Do not be deceived; (D)neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, (NASB)

Pick one. They are all the same.

If you never encounter any ‘demoralization, chaos and bewilderment’ you are living a very sheltered artificial life.

Hey, what about the Koran? They say much the same thing, and go one step further and teach death to homosexuals.

Christians are way too easy a target. We are acting like lemmings, much like the Jews did in Nazi Germany...wait and wait until the bullying "gets better" but it only gets worse.

The Good News Bible is the most accurate. It uses the term “homosexual perverts.”

The supreme court, the best offense is a good defense. Let’s start flooding the courts with counter suits anytime we find one of theses suits filed. It will overload the system to critical mass and might have some effect on this bull$hit.

Why is it about Gay men that in their heart of hearts, everything is all about them? Even the nicest guys I've known and worked with--and liked--still have an enormous ego. They are perpetually spoiled rotten children. Some know it and they can laugh about it. Others have no sense of humor. Go up against them, and watch the hissy fits begin.

They must have had something bad happen to them as toddlers to arrest their emotional growth.

Why is it about Gay men that in their heart of hearts, everything is all about them?

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Homosexual behavior seems to pervert the goal of evolution as well through self-selection.

Same reason female abortion advocates are so short-tempered and humorless.

They can never admit openly what they know deep in their hearts and must constantly try to deny — especially to themselves.

What they are doing is WRONG.

Living lie 24/7 must be hell of a way to live.

More precisely:

ἀρσενοκοίτης (arsenokoitēs 733; nominative plural masculine)
1. abusers of themselves with mankind
(from ἄρσης (arsēs), a male; and κοίτη (koitē 2845), a bed).
Reference(s)
1Co 6:9

2. defile one's self with mankind
(from ἄρσην (arsēn) a male, and κοίτη (koitē 2845) a bed) (this specific meaning occurs only in 1Co 6:9).
Reference(s)
1Ti 1:10

Arsenokoitēs is literally translated at least 2 males (since it is masculine plural) and a bed; more precisely a marriage bed (see below).

Koitē (a bed; noun feminine) - lying; a place of repose, bed, especially the marriage bed.

Koitē is found also in Romans 9:10 (10οὐ μό.νον δέ, ἀλ.λὰ καὶ Ῥε.βέκ.κα ἐξ ἑ.νὸς κοί.την ἔ.χου.σα, Ἰ.σα.ὰκ τοῦ πατ.ρὸς ἡ.μῶν) "And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac;" It is a sexual term. Koite is the Greek root from which we get the English Coitus. So literally 1 Cor. 6:9 is 2 men sharing a marriage bed engaged in sexual relations. Clear as a bell. Translators are quite right.

So is this nutball going to stand before God now and accuse HIM of causing 'mental anguish'???? My guess is Hell is full of peeps suffering mental anguish, so now is the day to repent instead of issuing lawsuits.
