USA: Gay man sues Bible publishers

Fri 11 Jul 2008 In: International News View at Wayback

A gay Michigan man is suing two Bible publishers over the inclusion of passages that call homosexuality sinful. Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, who is representing himself, said that the Biblical references have made him an outcast from his family and have contributed to physical discomfort, "demoralization, chaos and bewilderment." The lawsuits also blame the publishers for causing "me or anyone who is a homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate, and physical violence ... including murder." The lawsuit is being closely watched by Christian conservatives, reports 365gay.com. "As frivolous as this case may sound, it's an indicator of where the homosexual agenda is headed," said Bruce Hausknecht, judicial analyst for Focus on the Family Action.
