Ultimate Blasphemy: New ‘Queen James Bible’ Removes References to Homosexuality From Scripture

Just changing these passages to remove God’s condemnation of homosexuality from Scripture is an admission that such condemnations were there. I am always amused when gays and liberals try and say God destroyed Sodom for inhospitality, as if being a bad host would cause God to destroy a whole people. Simply ridiculous! Or, that God only hated homosexuality if it were associated with temple idol worship, taking it out of the temple making it approved by God.

Where did God ever inspire a writer of Holy Writ to pen a single word approving of homosexuality? Where are those passages wherein God said that although He only mentioned a man and woman marrying and becoming one flesh that, it was also okay for two people of the same gender? Where is homosexuality ever mentioned in a positive light, save when some were delivered from their homosexuality?

No, not only is this blasphemy to rewrite God’s Word and not only will it not change homosexuality into anything but a sin hated by God, among all sins to be sure; but it is to accuse God of not protecting a pure word that would faithfully portray His Will and Way or to say He was impotent to do so, in essence killing God. No, it won’t wash, first show positive references anywhere in Scripture about homosexuality and then maybe there is a place to start re-examining the subject, until then this is a work of the Devil.

In an effort to eliminate all known references to homosexuality as being sinful from Scripture, a new homosexual-friendly “Bible” has been released.

The “Queen James” version, which was published at the end of November, is said to be an attempt to “to prevent homophobic misinterpretation” of the Bible. Its publishers claim that the word “homosexuality” was not used in the Bible until 1946 when the Revised Standard Version was released, and that people have misunderstood the original meaning of the text.

The Queen James version makes no other changes to Bible passages other than to eight Scriptures that it feels have been wrongly construed to reference homosexual behavior.

Instead of God’s law in Leviticus 18:21 reading “Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination,” it now reads, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind in the temple of Molech: it is an abomination,” insinuating that homosexuality began as a pagan practice, and is only prohibited when the sexual acts are done in the name of paganism.

The publishers do admit, however, that the Bible has across the board prohibitions against other adult relationships, not matter where they are committed or the motivation, explaining, “Leviticus 18 includes a long list of forbidden sexual offenses in the form of incest, from verse 6 (‘near of kin’ relatives) to verse 18 (your wife’s sister). At verse 19, the sexual offenses are no longer incestuous, simply forbidding sex with a menstruating woman (verse 19) and your neighbor’s wife (verse 20).”

Likewise, the publishers state that Romans 1 refers to men and women having same-sex relations as part of pagan idol worship, and edits the text to read, “Their women did change their natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, left of the natural use of the woman, burned in ritual lust, one toward another, men with men working that which is pagan and unseemly. For this cause God gave the idolaters up unto vile affections, receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”

In 1 Corinthians 6:9, the Queen James Bible removes the word “effeminate” and replaces it with the phrase “morally weak.”

“You can change words in the Bible at your own peril, but just because you change the words to make yourself feel better about your grievous sin of homosexuality, it does not change the truth,” writes another. “The truth is, homosexuality is a sin and an abomination in the sight of God. God help you. The sign of a person who is truly saved is a person who turns from their sins and their life is changed. You cannot say you are saved and then continue in the same lifestyle and life – because if you do friend, I’m sorry to tell you, you are not saved.”
