Conservative Bible Project Cuts Out Liberal Passages

Finally, they're going to be true to their understanding of sacred Scripture, and correct it according to what they actually believe.

... uh, say what?


Conservative Bible Project Cuts Out Liberal Passages

Lo and behold, the Bible has gotten too liberal, according to a group of conservatives. And it needs a little editing.

That's the inspiration behind the Conservative Bible Project, which seeks to take the text back to its supposed right-wing roots.

Yes, even scripture is not orthodox enough for the modern conservative. Not that it's the fault of the author(s), exactly. The group cites a few reasons why the Bible is too progressive: "Lack of precision in the original language ... lack of precision in modern language" and "translation bias in converting the original language to the modern one."

Ironically, had they bothered to study the Greek and Aramaic, they would never have become this kind of 'conservative'.

Wait a minute...someone who favors killing unborn children is lecturing another group about selective use of scripture?

The irony.

This "project" does not make this group conservative, it just makes them wrong.
