A book claiming to be the worlds first “gay bible” has been published to coincide with the debate on same sex marriage.
Titled the “Queen James Bible”, its editors claim that it is a re-working of the King James Bible translated in a way that prevents “homophobic misinterpretation of Gods word”
Homosexuality was first overtly mentioned in the bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version. There is no mention or reference to homosexuality in any bible prior to this- only interpretations might have been made, the books official website said.
The publication, printed and bound in the US is timed to coincide with the current debate over same sex marriage.
The sales pitch on the website says: ” You cant choose your sexuality, but you canchoose Jesus. Now you can choose a bible, too. “
The book is on sale online but does not advertise its origins with no specific publisher, editor or translator listed on name by its official website.
God is listed as the author and Jesus Christ is listed and the contributor.
