My friend Don over at Dondon009 has a great post on the real history of James I of England who oversaw the re-editing of the Bible in 1611 or so. This revised version came to be referred to as the "King James Version." Any true student of British history knows that while he did his dynastic duty and produced an heir, James I was as gay as they come. In fact, he had a series of lovers/boyfriends on whom he spent lavishly and doled out titles. Accounts of James' loves are even recorded in the Privy Council records. Two of them are entombed near James' own tomb.
Meanwhile the favorite version of the Bible among many Christianist crazies is guess what: the King James Version! I guess their anti-knowledge agenda and expertise at denial is the underlying cause. Naturally, I find it all too, too funny!!!!! For the full story, see:http://dondon009.blogspot.com/2007/07/christian-hypocrisy-thru-ages.html#comments
