Gay man sues for libel of biblical proportions

Well, sound the alarm, notify the troops and call the press. I have officially heard it all now. I’m done. My keyboard is being chucked out the window and onto some 98′ Ford stories below.

In today’s ultra litigious society where you can sue if someone looks at you wrong, there’s this tool suing for what he believes someone wrote about him… wait for it… more than 2,000 years ago!

Yep. Meet the royal court jester and idious maximus, Bradley Foster of Canton, Mich.

Brad here is suing Zondervan Publishing – known largely for making Bibles – for $60 million and Thomas Nelson Publishing – also has a fairly sizable market in Bible reproduction – for $10 million. For the mathematically challenged, that’s SEVENTY x SIX ZEROES for:

…claiming their versions of the Bible that refer to homosexuality as a sin violate his constitutional rights and have caused him emotional pain and mental instability.

Hey, legal beagles, ambulance chasers, barristers… I don’t care what your specialty is. THIS is why many in America hate you and wouldn’t consider peeing on you if you were on fire. Some dolt in your profession really thought he could champion this case based on its um, legal foundation. Seriously? Haven’t attorneys heard of Nancy Reagan and know how to “Just say NO!”

It’s THE BIBLE!!! Holy writ of God. If you don’t read it, cool. However, to this imbecile (Brad, and maybe the lawyer too), this is an opportunity to stop the madness. It’s been two millenia and that’s a tad too long to allow scriptures to say “neener, neener, neener” and talk about him and his friends. But to actually sue to change the words penned so long ago by a guy you never met because your diaper got wet is close to insane. Dude, it’s obvious you don’t go to church, so who cares? Why bother? An affront to you is a fight to the entire family? Is that it?

Fowler, 39, alleges Zondervan’s Bibles referring to homosexuality as a sin have made him an outcast from his family and contributed to physical discomfort and periods of “demoralization, chaos and bewilderment.” …The intent of the publisher was to design a religious, sacred document to reflect an individual opinion or a group’s conclusion to cause “me or anyone who is a homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate, and physical violence … including murder,” Fowler wrote.

Um, yeah. I am biting my tongue so hard blood is coming out of my nose. But suffice to say, what the Bible is saying has not made you an outcast from your family. Rather, your skewed definition of love according to the Bible is doing all the work for you. And MEMO to the simpleton who thinks the world revolves around him: Said publisher’s intent was to translate the Word of God passed on from generations, not to interpret their thoughts of it.

If you got a beef, make a way to see St. Peter face-to-face and bring him a subpoena for his land-LORD. I have a feeling, you may get a new definition for “Holy Shizzle.”
