Bible Controversies . . .

Many who speak out in opposition to homosexuality have quipped that the Genesis account mentions Adam and Eve, not Adam and "Steve."  Well, times they are a changin'.  According to the new "translation" from the "Gay" Old Testament, Genesis 1 mentions Eve and "Aida" inhabiting Eden.  Swell . . .

And then there's the "Green Bible."  You guessed it--its made from "Recycled paper, using soy-based ink with a cotton/linen cover."  It also has "green-letter" verses highlighted so as to encourage the work of "healing and sustaining" the earth.  Not only is it a shame that legitimate discussion about environmental stewardship gets lost in the PC trendiness, but a Bible made like this one will probably last about a week.  Don't take it outside on a foggy or humid day!  It will disintigrate or grow mold (like a Chia Pet) before your very eyes.

Oh, the difficulties pastors and churches face these days . . .  Well, at least the secular humanists over at the city council approved the church's new heli-port.  The injustice of it all!  Click here: Church wins OK to create helistop | | Tacoma, WA

And I thought mosquitos of the Eastern Sierras were a problem.  I'll take the skeeters over the gators any time . . .  Click here: Campers restrain wild alligator | National Breaking News |

I took a look at the Green Bible while at far as physical looks go the cover is cool but the green font is POORLY executed. Silly enough to make a "Green Bible" and even worse to put the "green verses" in light green font so you can barely read them and I 20/20 vision. To me it was like the Anti-Green Bible because I had to skip the verses in light green font.

A "gay" bible, at the very least, seems to demonstrate that "the" Bible doesn't condone homosexuality by way of deduction, no?

Aida and Eve? What happened to verbal inspiration?

The alligator was caught in a part of new South Wales where i holiday with my family. Crocodiles -salt water( 'man eaters") and fresh water- are found a further 1500 miles further north. Interestingly the alligator was captured with the use of a mosquito net ,and i could not help comparing this with the purveyors of the new versions of the Bible,in that they have been well and truly snared by Satan and political correctness.

The problem I see with the flying pastor is that it smacks of pride. I don't know this man and he is probably a great guy, but can't anybody else handle the other service? Its just a LITTLE much.

"There are many different versions of the Bible; I don't see why we can't have one," said Max Mitchell. Max must be a very confused individual, unless the next one will be Adam & Steve. Either way - when they get asked by skeptics the perennial 'where did all the other people come from' - I wonder what their answer will be. I guess it will be a very short bible version.

Diana's estate ought to sue for the use of her name. I can't imagine they would assent to it.

Talk about idiots on parade! I just hope they like the heat.
