Quote# 75814

This generation has a hunger for perversion. What was perversion just a few years ago, is now "normal". What was "hiding" in the closet is now "parading" in our streets. Perversion has found a welcome home - from the living room, to the White House; from our churches - to even the word of God!

Our friend Webster, defines "pervert" as 1. to cause to turn aside or away from what is good or true... 2. to twist the meaning or sense of: misinterpret (Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, 1977, p.856).

A perfect definition of The New International Version (NIV): "to cause to turn aside or away from what is good or true" and "to twist the meaning or sense of". If you doubt that, before you start reading this tract - get the NIV and check it as you read this tract!

YOU HEATHEN! EVERYONE KNOWS THE KJV IS THE ONLY TRUE TRANSLATION!

Allegory for Jesus

Funny. I think that fundies tend to pervert (definition 2) "what is good or true" in order to say that other people are perverting (definition 1) things. It's pretty amusing. I'm absolutely in stitches over it right now.

Wow, you're right! Those definitions totally prove that homosexuality is wrong! What have I been doing with my life? Being happy and self-realized? Pah!

"...from our churches..."

Yes, I agree. Your churches are a perversion of all that is good, and noble about humanity.

@ Efrain:
Actually, that is exactly what Kimmie is trying to say. You understood her point perfectly. NOW how do you feel? =3

Fundies trying to out crazy each other, this should be entertaining.

Eh, another KJV fangirl. I'll be impressed if she urges people to read Tyndale, Gutenberg, or even the Koine Greek and Hebrew translations.

I'm not even sure what the hell this means! Is this a KJV only rant?

Unfortunately, the NIV is a crooked translation. But that really doesn't mean much in light of the fact that the Bible is a crooked anthology.

Can't we just all agree that the KJV and the NIV are both shit?

When your own religion isn't enough, try neutral as humanly possibly god damn dictionaries and try to drown anyone with definition with little to no revelance.

The only ones perverting anything are Christians, in their demands that people "turn aside or away from" their true selves.

Oh cripes, I made the mistake of going to the website. My eyes are bleeding from trying to make out the words from the noisy background.

@DarkfireTaimatsu:
Might want to re-read Efrain's reply. "The only true TRANSLATION". If that ain't subtle satire, I don't know what i.s

@Jt

You have my full agreement.

Aside from that, I have no idea what Kimmie is trying to say, except the usual fundie "I don't like it so it is bad" crap.

To pervert something is to turn away from something that is good and true?

Our society is turning towards things such as compassion, tolerance, acceptance, understanding and equality. You know, the thing endorsed by Jesus.

So either your saying these things are not "good and ture" or have some messed-up definition of them.

This generation has a hunger for perversion.

He sure got me pegged. Ha!

What was perversion just a few years ago, is now "normal". What was "hiding" in the closet is now "parading" in our streets.

Oh, wait, I think I know where this is going. I should have read the whole thing before attempting a reply. My bad.

Perversion has found a welcome home - from the living room, to the White House; from our churches - to even the word of God!

Wait, you've only just noticed now? We've been telling you that this bible thing is a piece of utter tripe for years, but you would not listen.

Our friend Webster, defines "pervert" as 1. to cause to turn aside or away from what is good or true... 2. to twist the meaning or sense of: misinterpret (Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary, 1977, p.856).

Right. Thanks for that.

The NIV? Hold on... this might be a Poe.

So if I have it right, telling people evolution is a lie and that everything we know to this point about cosmology is wrong is an act of perversion ?

Outstanding, good to know.

Sounds good. I'll compare the NIV to the KJV...

Oh wait. The only difference is that "thee" and "thou" were changed to "you," and a lot of verbs lost the "eth" at the end.

Yes because when God had the bible written it was the KJV, not any other type. Of course nothing can get lost in translation.

In other words you hate gays. Got it.

The Bible is NOT the source of ultimate morality. It is a collection of Bronze and Iron Age myths and misconceptions with a healthy dose of Middle Eastern biases thrown into the mix.
I chose to raise my children without it. They're doing fine by the way.

Perversion does NOT entail just sexuality. That first definition could be like a soldier who goes awol or shit like that. But leave it to a fundie to not realize there's more than one meaning even to each definition of a word.

"If you doubt that, before you start reading this tract - get the NIV and check it as you read this tract!"

So ... the NIV is a "perversion" but you're encouraging people to read it. Gotchya.
