Great news on The Kingdom of the Occult! Thomas Nelson decided to publish our Kabbalah Chapter in its entirety. They even included new edits I made to strengthen the chapter. This is a victory for free speech and fair use, and I am delighted that TN chose to stand up to Madonna's guru--Philip Berg--and his very expensive LA law firm. If they have the truth like they say they do, then why are they threatening the people who question it? What are they afraid of? Fortunately, this is still America and not China (at least not yet), so we still have some recourse.

It's wonderful to have good news for a change.

This brave decision came after both Thomas Nelson and Zondervan were hit with a $70 million dollar lawsuit filed against them by a gay man upset by Bible verses condemning homosexuality.

"A homosexual man who has a blog on Sen. Barack Obama's campaign website is suing two major Christian publishers for violating his constitutional rights and causing emotional pain, because the Bible versions they publish refer to homosexuality as a sin.

Bradley LaShawn Fowler, 39, of Canton, Mich., is seeking $60 million from Zondervan and another $10 million from Thomas Nelson Publishing in lawsuits filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the Grand Rapids Press reported."

What's amusing about this (if a bit weird) is Zondervan's response that Mr. Fowler should be suing the translation committee instead of them! Okay . . . .

Can you imagine any of this happening in the 1950s? It's like something out of a SciFi novel. Our reality makes George Orwell's book 1984 seem like a comedy sketch.

Stay tuned for more exciting news from the world of Christian Apologetics.

Note: $60 million was filed against Zondervan and $10 million against Thomas Nelson.

Keep up the good work. However, I can't say the same about I've emailed him twice in the last couple of weeks and he hasn't responded to either email.

Please accept our apologies for the delay in answering you. We receive hundreds of emails monthly, and trying to answer all of them does become a bit overwhelming. We do our best but are limited on time.

The best way to reach us is to do what you did--be persistent. :)
