'Gay' man sues Bible publisher for 'mental anguish'($10 million- negative toward gays)
World Net Daily ^ | 9-9-09

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.

Dude’s busted in NIV also:

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Any jackass can file a lawsuit.

It’s up to the court to find no merit in it, and throw it out.

That would be a good defense, actually - to demand the court rule on all scriptures, from any tradition.

LOL - "Case dismissed."

Good deal Blue. I’m a few shots of Dewars in. The political and social landscape needs a belly laugh.

God bless!

Which is what will inherently happen unless he is fortunate enough to be gifted a radical, liberal, religion-hating judge.

That's why the Founders gave us Appellate Courts.

He should sue the author instead. See how that works out.

Is someone holding a gun to his head to make him read any Bible at all, much less the versions he doesn’t like? Perhaps he ought to take it up with the Author?

Never mind trying to post the Greek alphabet part of the reference, but here is the "offending" word (actually ONE Greek word; several English words to render it) in the "offensive" passage:

abusers of themselves with mankind,
Strong's Number: 733
Transliterated Greek word: arsenokoítai

The Greek leaves NO DOUBT what is being spoken of. Oh, and the Greek is the "original" this idiot says they are "changing"; all the "changes of Scripture" he cites are merely differences in TRANSLATION; none substantially changes the meaning.

Now...

NT:733
a)rsenokoi/th$
arsenokoites (ar-sen-ok-oy'-tace); from NT:730 and NT:2845;
a sodomite:

KJV - abuser of (that defiles self) with mankind.
(Biblesoft's New Exhaustive Strong's Numbers and Concordance with Expanded Greek-Hebrew Dictionary. Copyright © 1994, 2003, 2006 Biblesoft, Inc. and International Bible Translators, Inc.)

Feel free to look up the word yourself, and to check the meanings of the #730 & # 2848 from which arsenokoites is derived. The meaning couldn't be more explicit.

Case dismissed.

My #21 should have been to Post #1, not #2. Sorry for any confusion.

This is one example why we need a national “make the loser pay,” element in tort reform.

At some point he will have a face-to-face encounter with that Author and at that time, his perspective will change dramatically.

I would counter-sue his butt, and make him pay my legal fees.

Let’s not use the term “Counter-sue his butt” in the context of this case. That’s a mental image nobody needs this early in the morning. Yuk!

I suppose someone held this moron down and forced him to read it.
