Blessed are the conservative in Bible translation
CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The Gospel of Luke records that, as he was dying on the cross, Jesus showed his boundless mercy by praying for his killers this way: "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do."
Not so fast, say contributors to the Conservative Bible Project.
The project, an online effort to create a Bible suitable for contemporary conservative sensibilities, claims Jesus' quote is a disputed addition abetted by liberal biblical scholars, even if it appears in some form in almost every translation of the Bible.
Here are a bunch or right wing whack jobs who are presuming to "translate" the Bibble despite the fact that academics the world over spend their lives laboring over the job of translating obscure scriptures.
Why do these right wing fundamentalist backwoods hicks have such grand delusions?
