Liberal bias has become the single biggest distortion in modern Bible translations . . . The committee in charge of updating the bestselling version, the NIV, is dominated by professors and higher-educated participants who can be expected to be liberal and feminist in outlook. As a result, the revision and replacement of the NIV will be influenced more by political correctness and other liberal distortions than by genuine examination of the oldest manuscripts. As a result of these political influences, it becomes desirable to develop a conservative translation that can serve, at a minimum, as a bulwark against the liberal manipulation of meaning in future versions.

Carrying out the racial battle on the spiritual plane was the goal of the Institute. The faith that the German people needed for the spiritual battlefield was not the old "Jewish" Christianity, but a Christianity that was truly German -- namely, purged of Jewishness . . . This would be accomplished by revising the hymnal, Bible, catechism and other liturgical materials, and producing new versions incorporating Teutonic myths that were viewed as congruent with the teachings of Jesus -- once the Jewish falsifications were removed from the New Testament and his true Aryan nature was restored.

I guess I'll stop comparing these assholes to the Nazis when they stop acting like Nazis.

Update 11:55 am ET: A few quotations from the conservative Bible:

A man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
Luke 12:15

The love of money Big government is the root of all evil.
Timothy 6:10

The poor always ye have with you. The trick is to keep them from voting.
John 12:18

And you will know the truth lies, and the truth lies will make you free the majority party.
John 8:32

In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider blame the Democrats.
Ecclesiastes 7:14

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out partied with all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew blessed the tables of the moneychangers.
Matthew 21:12

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
