More Conservative Bible Being Penned

Conservatives are working on a re-write of the Bible to remove the possibility of Liberal misrepresentation of god's will. Yeah...
This is nothing short of Blasphemy. It's also particularly entertaining. This is a rebuke of the words chosen by god (certainly not my beliefs). These are people at odds with god, but rather than finding the right religion, they intend on changing this one. This says so much more about the history of religion than this group would ever want.
This is typical of how religions have changed and been developed. Whether it was the freeing of Christianity from the Catholic Church by Jan Hus and Martin Luther. Or the conservativisation of Christianity into Islam. It was one person or a small group deciding that they knew the spirit of god an then they change it and find followers. From the Witnesses, to Mormons and so on, this is how these off shoots came to be. We are about to witness the birth of a new sect of Christianity.
I don't understand why stoning to death of everyone but Israelites whom forgot they have genitals is not conservative enough. I do understand that it's about control. When control is lost and the cat is backed further into the corner it comes back with more and more vicious attacks. I wonder how many will have to die for this sect of Christianity before the general public says "Whoa, that's not what we wanted." Remember the Klan... Here comes the modern outlet. I can only hope that the evil that is about to come forth drives more people away from Christianity. Are we witnessing the convulsions before death?

As I've pointed out before, the choice of words we use does matter--it matters a lot. These people know that and want to use the "correct" words that convey the meanings they want reflected back at them.

(Note: The website, where this project is reported to be hosted, was down at the time of this posting, so I can't check it out for details. Maybe god took it down.)

How to start your own religion:

1.write a book with that preaches your personal world view
2.make up a narrator in the book, who isn't human, who knows everything, and can't go wrong
3.have lots of kids
4.keep them secluded and ignorant from outside ideas
5.teach them only the book you have written
6.tell them not to believe anybody who questions the book, and that the book has in fact always existed
7.keep doing this long enough until you re-write history

Hahaha.. I just read this today on Sky. Glad you beat me to putting it up here.
Nice of them to step in for god, eh? Obviously he can't handle his own book!

Looks like the Conservative Bible Project link is back up. PZ also weighs in with some thoughts.

Greg Fish on his Twitter feed wrote that "it's like they are writing an ancient version of Atlas Shrugged". I LOL'd.

I think they need to just go ahead and translate it into the fiction section to make it more accurate.
