    A homosexual man has filed a $70 million lawsuit against Bible publishers Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, alleging that their version of the Bible that refers to homosexuality as a sin violates his constitutional rights and has caused him emotional distress.

    The fact that he is a sinner and not seeking God is what put him in distress.

    He is looking for understanding from man instead of his understanding that in the eyes of God sodomy is an abomination.

    Will the case actually be heard or just dismissed? Let's see how our justice system handles this foolishness.

    I wonder how he chose these two particular publishers. Why not all main-stream Bible publishers?

    The lawyers chose the victim based upon the depth of their pockets.

    well of course - that would make perfect sense. It always comes down to money.

    What in the world was I thinking!

    The first unwritten rule of sueing:

    Sue someone (possibly a corporate someone) with money.

    The "fly" in the ointment !

    Quoted from the article:
    "Fowler, who is representing himself in both cases, claims that Zondervan manipulated Scripture by using the term "homosexuals" in 1 Corinthians 6:9 of their 1982 and 1987 revised edition Bibles. He also contends that the reference to homosexuality were deleted by the publisher in later versions without informing the public.
    He alleges that since the older Kings James Version containing the term "homosexuals" is used by his family pastor, he has been outcast by his family.
    The 39-year-old is suing the Grand Rapids publisher for compensation of 20 years of "emotional duress and mental instability," he told WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids. "

    Folks...somedays it makes me even happier to be a KJV guy...and I'm NOT going to argue that point with anyone here. Looking at the above quote you'll notice some glaring inconsistencies as well as some interesting FACTS. The guy CLAIMS that the older KJV's use the term "homosexual"..WRONG...you'll not find that word in ANY normal "PUBLIC DOMAIN",non-copywrited KJV....but YES..you'll find that TRUTH clearly taught. He has a problem with GOD and God's Word.....not his Pastor OR the publishers. He has a SIN problem and needs Christ.We should pray for him.
    I GUARANTEE you that the "versions" the above mentioned publishers printed that contained the actual word "homosexuals" in them most definitely would have been duly COPYWRITED versions and mark my words....if these sleazy politicians in DC ever succeed in pushing through one of those HATE CRIME laws they have been trying to pass then this guy may actually have a case because that kind of reference OR teaching in ANY Bible or other publication will most likely be illegal. Right now the only way it is likely he could win the case is if he can get it to go to trial and manage to assemble a jury full of PERVERTS to rule in his favor. IT truly is a warped,sin-sick,messed up world we live in. Oh for the sound of a Trumpet in the Eastern Sky...................!
