This story is from 2008.
Typical.

Please continue on with the emotional, knee-jerk outrage.
So it is.

Moving swiftly onward then. A non-starter all around.

From one of the source articles


Zondervan says that even if Fowler’s claim is credible, he’s suing the wrong party. A company spokesman told WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids that Zondervan doesn’t translate the Bible or own the copyright for any of the translations but relies, instead, on the “scholarly judgment of credible translation committees.”

As a gay person I agree. This person is just sue happy and is blaming a several thousand year old book for his family problems. He'd be better off trying to sue God, because it is supposedly his written word in there. (Good luck with that idea too haha)

I don't think the OP knew because he posted the story in another thread, but the site he got it from is one of those that reprints old stories to get hits.

This is the link he used. Daily Headlines

I know that one has the right to face one's accuser but does it work the other way? Can you sue an unaccessable defendant?

His microaggressions are hurting my feelings and I'm not even religious.

Will you homophobes take a rest already! Jesus H. Christ, what the hell are you afraid of? Perhaps your own latent homosexuality? Throw on some Judy Garland records and come out of the closet already!

Gee I wonder why he isn't suing the publishers of the Qu'ran then too.

I guess the answer to bigotry is to become one, and go to court, and get alot of money.



Maybe because American Christians are more sensitive and emotional than American Muslims. Easy picken's.


Yeah well as a evil christian, and a republican, and a gun owner. I have never sued publishers for saying 'mean' things about me, and my 'wicked' lifestyle.

As the 'good' book I just turn the other cheek or come to ATS to bring a sermon to the masses.

The only thing that article is about is someone looking for a payday.

You know her records make me sad. I think I'm going to sue her and her record company.

Thanks for the idea comrade!

No homophobia here, just logic. I find this old story as ridiculous as the one about the dude that "carried open" in from of a zoo that doesn't allow guns. Merely whining because the world isn't the way they want it.

I got this far:


There are several reason as to why the homosexuals want to create a godless military. There is a demonic conspiracy involved here.


And decided that it's a feeble argument. Jeez.

It's a good thing this was thrown out of court, huh?

Just because you are a Christian, gun-owning republican it does not make you any more evil than a socialist or a Muslim, but stories like these do provide some evidence to prove that some of your Christian friends may be scared and a bit sensitive.

And for some reason they like to play the victim. Something they believe in is always under attack.

Kinda. There's a difference between nature and religion BUT it's like trying to sue the same.

WHY not YOU use it?
But wait the costution says the court can be corrected in proven WRONG and trust me IT WILL.

It is. Not by "persons" though. Society has moved on and these folks are clinging to the old ways as long as they can. It's inevitable though.

The same can be said of LGBTS.

Hell it wasn't until I came to ATS or turned on certain media outlets that I hated so many people.

Use what? The victim card? How have I used the victim card? Very little of what I believe is under attack and if a circumstance does arise, I'm quite capable of fighting back.

As far as the courts and the constitution, I doubt lawsuits such as these will ever gain any traction. If they do, I'll be right there defending the religious, and the publishers of their "good" books.

I wonder if I can wander down to a Vegan Resteraunt,order a steak and SUE them because they don't HAVE one for me.REMEMBER I can NOW claim I'm anything.
I'm also claiming a KLINGON faith so if insulted I CAN ASSAULT them as DISHONORING me violates my CHOICE.
Sounds STUPID doesn't it?

Well that's telling.
Gays had a point. Unequal rights for them. Conservatives have been around since the beginning of the country. Too bad many are still stuck in the 18th century. Like I said though, it's inevitable.
