Last night on a TV channel for Bible-worshipers I watched some
of the authors of the NIV Revision of the Bible trying to defend
their creative transliterations. The criticism was made that a
"well-known lesbian" had been in charge of translating some of
While this in itself was, for some odd reason I never did
understand, cause for major consternation among the hyper-
Christians on the show, their chief objection was that the
"mell-known lesbian" was accused of "hiding" and "toning down"
what these Christians call god's dicta against what these
Christians call "sodomy."
(Why these people give a shit what the sexuality of their
translaters is, would be a study for a group of psychiatrists
However, since the cult that wrote the NIV was the cult that
produced this show, naturally their conclusion was, and I quote
as best I can from memory, "the forces of Satan [the lesbian]
failed in the attempt to harm the word of god."
