HOMOSEXUAL SUES BIBLE PUBLISHERS OVER CONDEMNATIONS OF SODOMY AS SIN

If Jesus Christ, himself, could be sued for the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality--there would be many who would gleefully do so. In the meantime, a Michigan man has sued two bible publishers claiming their references to homosexuality as a sin violate his constitutional rights and have caused him emotional pain and mental instability.

FROM grandrapidspress: "Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, is seeking $60 million from Zondervan, based in Cascade Township, and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing in the lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Fowler filed the suit against Zondervan on Monday, the same day U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook Jr. refused to appoint an attorney to represent him in his case against Thomas Nelson, a Tennessee publisher. Fowler filed a suit against Thomas Nelson in June. He is representing himself in both claims.

Fowler 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."

Such a lawsuit may seem silly and frivolous today, but I suspect one day it will be taken quite seriously.
