The Pacific Bible
is the work of General Editor Eliza Wood, founder of Progress Planet
, and other editors. The web site
archiving nearly four hundred former Bible verses that promoted rape,
genocide, human sacrifice, slavery, sexuality and homosexuality,
subjugation of women, cannibalism and other highly problematic
practices, The Pacific Bible promotes exactly what most modern religions
preach. In its newly revised form, The Pacific Bible is more consistent
with the messages people hear from their churches and synagogues today
everywhere in the world.
"Archiving" means "removing" since the verses in question are replaced with the word "archived." Here is another article
on her site discussing the Bible.
If you happened to notice her mention of another Bible, by Pink
Cross Publishing, don't go looking for it the way I did. According to Snopes.com
, the "Gay Bible" is a rumor started by those who failed to realize that an article about it on Dead Serious
was a satire.
Updates: Many thanks to Eliza Wood for a
fast and informative reply to a request for more information. Neither
the Pacific Bible nor the section of removed verses will have
commentary. The Pacific Bible is based on the World English Bible, a
modernized English text. Publication is set for January 15, 2013.
What do you think of the idea of making a Bible with "offensive" materials removed?
