The Queen James Bible

There's a "gay-friendly" version of the bible.
The "Queen James Bible" is a new interpretation of the good book which claims to 'arm' gay Christians against homophobes who often point to key passages as proof that God hates gays. Eight verses from six books, including Genesis and Leviticus, have been 'reinterpreted' by the authors who claim homosexuality wasn't mentioned until the 1946 Revised Standard Version.
From the book's website:
The King James Bible is the most popular Bible of all time, and arguably the most important English language document of all time. The brainchild and namesake of King James I, who wanted an English language Bible that all could own and read, it has been in print for over 400 years and has brought more people to Christ than any other Bible translation. Commonly known to biographers but often surprising to most Christians, King James I was a well-known bisexual. Though he did marry a woman, his many gay relationships were so well-known that amongst some of his friends and court, he was known as “Queen James.” It is in his great debt and honor that we name The Queen James Bible so.
Amazon is selling it for $34.95.
