U.S. District Judge Julian Abele Cook, Jr. has accepted the suit from a self-described homosexual man from Michigan seeking $70 million from two Christian publishers for emotional distress and mental instability during the past 20 years from Bibles that identify homosexual behavior as sin and evil.
Bradley LaShawn Fowler, a self-described homosexual, is representing himself. He claims the two publishers, Zondervan and Thomas Nelson, are misrepresenting the Bible.
In a public statement, Zondervan said, “We only publish credible translations produced by credible Biblical scholars. We rely on the scholarly judgment of the highly respected and credible translation committees behind each translation and never alter the text of the translations we are licensed to publish.”
Judge Cook said his court “has some very genuine concerns about the nature and efficacy of [Fowler’s] claims.”
Apparently, free speech now is only allowed for left-wing radicals, homosexuals, feminist radicals, atheists, and Communists.
Judge Cook should throw out this frivolous lawsuit, or the people should remove him from office.
