Was King James I of England a homosexual? I was reading a chapter in Gonzalez's "Story Of Christianity" (vol 2) last night and he asserted that King James I was indeed a homosexual. I have heard this before and I have heard others dispute it. Usually those who dispute it are in the KJVO camp, have no background in history, and who are only interested in defending the person their translation was named after. I am trying to get a better understanding of the situation in England during this period because I am currently studying the puritans and separatists.
