A new version of the traditional King James Bible has been published with an LGBT twist. Called the Queen James Bible, this version updates several passages that address homosexuality. The Bible leaves its origins a mystery, with a specific publisher, editor, and translator left unlisted. On Amazon.com, the publisher is cited as Queen James, the author as God, and contributor as Jesus Christ.
The Bible's website says, "You can't choose your sexuality, but you can choose Jesus. Now you can choose a Bible too."
"Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!" says the website. "The Queen James Bible seeks to resolve interpretive ambiguity in the Bible as it pertains to homosexuality: We edited those eight verses in a way that makes homophobic interpretations impossible."
The verses that have been changed are below, with both the original translation and the Queen James interpretation.
