By: DAVID RICE Re: NIV Defense 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 the material. 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 to perform.) 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." ...
