Ladies and gentlemen, I give you: COMPLETE AND UTTER STUPIDITY

Just go ahead and read this now, and don't bother to come back for my comments if you already throw up in your mouth a little:


Because, as we all know: "Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations."

Apparently, ordinary people believe they can retranslate the bible starting from an (already biased) 17th C English translation into their preferred turn of phrase, adding odd cultural biases and wackiness along the way. Because, you know, they are just as smart as people who actually study ancient texts and cultures for a living. No doubt, they will continue to ignore other contemporary works and any gospels which had previously been excluded will continue to be excluded on the basis that those were in the bible they done grew up with and therefore are the only ones to be in this "new" translation. At the same time, perhaps they will alter the calendar to make it fit properly, too.

Next project: they will remove any "liberal" genetic (i.e. evolutionary) bases from as many scientific texts as possible, before moving on to rewriting medical texts.
