The Son of God Undergoes a Gender Change

Now comes the "Publication in Response to Empowerment of Women in Society." Read it and weep:

WASHINGTON, May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- A new edition of the Gospels
of the Bible for the first time shows Christ as a woman, named Judith
Christ of Nazareth, and God as female. In all other respects, the
classic texts of the Gospels remain unchanged.

The publisher, LBI Institute, has released this new Bible entitled:
"Judith Christ of Nazareth, The Gospels of the Bible, Corrected to
Reflect that Christ Was a Woman, Extracted from Matthew,
Mark, Luke and John." The book is available in bookstores
and online.

"This long-awaited revised text of the Gospels makes the
moral message of Christ more accessible to many, and
more illuminating to all," says Billie Shakespeare, V.P.
for the publisher. "It is empowering. We published this
new Bible to acknowledge the rise of women in society."

This new Bible includes: The Parable of the Prodigal
Daughter, The Lady's Prayer, and other revised
favorite passages, such as:

      * Her birth -- Luke 2:4 And Joseph went to Bethlehem. 5 To
be enrolled
with Mary, his wife, who was then pregnant.
7 And she brought forth
her firstborn child. 21 And her
name was chosen to be Judith.

* Her crucifixion -- John 19:17 And She bearing her cross
went forth. 18
There they crucified Judith.

* Her resurrection -- Matthew 28:1 Mary Magdalene and the
other Mary
came to see the tomb. 5 But the angel said to
the women, "Do not be
afraid, for I know that you seek
Judith who was crucified." 6 "She is
not here; for She is risen."

I wonder how the creators of this book treated this somber warning:
"You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take
away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your
God which I command you." Deut. 4:2
