Liberal Bias in the Bible Translations?

Just gets under Conservapedia's craw.

"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

That famous line, attributed to Jesus in Luke 23:34, could well apply to the folks at Conservapedia -- the "conservative version" of Wikipedia -- who have embarked on a project to rewrite the Bible.

In an effort to rid the Good Book of "liberal bias," the group has set up the Conservative Bible Project, which aims to rewrite the Bible from a modern, conservative perspective.

"Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations," the project's Web site asserts.

And the line quoted above is one of the group's targets for deletion in a truly "conservative" Bible. The "forgive them father" quote "is a favorite of liberals but should not appear in a conservative Bible," Conservapedia states.

They've got their work cut out for them. And I expect some 'sploding heads when they get to the SOCIALISM! in the New Testament.

  1. Yeah ... I recall King James was quite the liberal mad man - he wouldn't burn witches on the Sabbath, that pinko-leftist.
