But let’s just fantasize for a minute shall we??
Remember that old joke Christian zealots would give to drive home point about homosexuality being an aberration? They used to say “God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve”. But we all know history can and has been been re-written. Here is how Dead Serious news satired the story at the time:
Pink Cross Publishing, the same company that published a gay-friendly version of the Koran, stated that they were adding the finishing touches to the newly revised Bible. Mary and Joseph will be replaced by Mary and Josephine, a lesbian couple unable to have children the conventional way, hence the virgin birth of Jesus. All of Jesus’ disciples will be gay except for Judas. In the new Bible, all of the disciples will pair off after the Last Supper with the exception of Judas. Satan will also be straight. The new gay-friendly Bible has yet to be named.
Am I the only MadMan that find this absolutely hilarious??? The Christian conservatives would have a collective heart attack should something like this ever hit the shelves. No longer will they be able to quote Bible verses to drive their judgmental ideologies home. Now a gay American can say “well the Bible says….” with just as much authority.
No doubt the Christian left & right will say “your gay Bible doesn’t count…some man wrote that!!!” To which the gay Bible thumper will reply “and King James wrote yours…and we ALL know he was gay honey!” (finger snap)
I beg someone to strike now while the iron is hot and take up this task in the new climate Obama created with his recent announcement on gay marriage. I for one would personally sit back and enjoy the ruckus. Reminds me of the old school Bible story of the Tower of Babel.
