Selective celebration of the King James Version from Sandown

By all means Sandown Free Presbyterian are more than welcome to give thanks for the 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible but they are rather selective in how they are going about it.

Some people on Twitter are wondering what they will be doing for a grand finale. Will they take out Iris Robinson and Kirk McCambley and stone them on the Square in front of St. Anne's Cathedral after all in Leviticus 20 v 10 it says:

"And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbor's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death."

Actually as this comes three verses earlier than one they quote in their advert maybe this should be the warm up act.

Or if they are so worried about abominations mabe they should picket outside the Mourne Seafood Bar while they continue to serve oysters, crab, prawns and lobster after all:

"And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you. They shall be even an abomination unto you; ye shall not eat of their flesh, but ye shall have their carcasses in abomination.Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you." Leviticus 11:10-12
 Or maybe they will have to have a witness outside House of Fraser or in the Victoria Shopping Centre or Castle Court or basically any shop that sells clothing after all:

"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God." Deutoronomy 22:5

Of course while they rejoice incircimventing the law that says that a protest against a parade needs to be registered with the Parade Commission maybe they should bear this one in mind next time they feel like praying.

"He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination." Proverbs 28:9
Of these other protests, or as they would like to have you say 'witnesses' will not be taking place this this 400th Anniversary year of the King James Bible that they hold so dear, even though many of the translations within it are of the time of writing to keep the propriety of the reader.

  1. Agreed. I will not even add to your observations. I do find it highly amusing, not to mention ironic, that King James himself was a practising homosexual...
