*Responding to a comment on David and Jonathan*

Oh look, another fool who thinks they were gay. Read this to learn.

*Gets informed that historical King James himself may have been gay and gets a link about that*

More foolish nonsense. No doubt something random you pulled out a search engine to make your point.

But Mark pulled his first link out of a search engine to make his own point!

I suspect that the Christians who defend King James are the same ones defending Donald Trump. People like Southern Baptists could easily say "Trump isn't any holier than anyone else, but we're going along with him anyway because he's advancing our cause." Instead they claim he has some kind of 'annointing'.

Likewise, King James was a bad monarch. Being a closet case was the least of his crimes. He also burned people for being witches, maintained that he had a right to be treated as a god (which even an avowed non-Christian can recognise as blasphemy) and his incompetence led to the death of his son and the rule of Oliver Cromwell, and subsequent death of millions. While a widely available translation of the Bible was necessary at that point in history, James didn't commission or translate it himself - he sponsored a project which was already underway in return for having his name stuck on it. A bit like Trump and his buildings, really.

I wonder what Thoman Jefferson's revised version of the bible has to say on the subject.

Nope, it was said while he was king, or "Queen".

"Rex fuit Elizabeth, nunc est regina Jacobus."


(Elizabeth was King, now James is Queen.)

I think using King James personal life to discredit that version of the bible is dumb. That isn't needed to discredit that bible. Any KJV only supporter has bigger problems to deal with like why it took 1600 years to get the bible right.

Doubting Thomas

Because nobody was gay until the 1960's sexual revolution when the devil made everyone start having sex outside of marriage. I thought everyone knew that.

So, all hail Queen David and Queen James.

A respected historian like Antonia Fraser never denied that James was that way inclined. Neither did he:

"I am neither God nor an angel, but a man like any other. Therefore I act like a man, and confess to loving those dear to me more than other men. You may be sure that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else, and more than you who are here assembled. I wish to speak in my own behalf, and not to have it thought to be a defect, for Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had his John, and I have my George."

2019 is an excellent year for proving inferior subhuman trolls wrong.

Otherwise they'd find new material to try and prove their 'point': which never existed in the first place.

Milo Yiannopoulos always destroys inferior subhuman rightist trolls. No matter what the year, he's the gift that keeps you failing.

" No doubt something random you pulled out a search engine to make your point. "

It's better than the random nuggets you pull out of your ass.
