Lo and behold, the Bible has gotten too liberal, according to a group of conservatives. And it needs a little editing.
That’s the inspiration behind the , which seeks to take the text back to its supposed right-wing roots.
So how can the Bible be conservatized? The group has proposed a Wikipedia-like group editing project. Some of the ideas would only bring the translation closer to the original. But others would fundamentally change the text.
Among the words to be eliminated: “government.” A conservative columnist at Beliefnet described the effort as “just crazy … like what you’d get if you crossed the Jesus Seminar with the College Republican chapter at a rural institution of Bible learnin’.”
Golly-gee, I remember the good old days when the Bible was considered the immutable word of God.
And I cannot imagine how much venom Ann Coulter would spew if the Left vowed to make the Bible more liberal.
