Mistranslation and the Koran

Bob is questioning the language behind the Koran. This is a great service to the world. In his most recent post, he questions the filtered language behind Islam's view of homosexuality. This has raised some eyebrows from the Islamic community.

I support you completely, Bob. Injustice anywhere is truly a threat to justice everywhere. Thank you for bringing your flashlight to bare.

I think this is great and fairly obvious at the same time. This should be done for the bible and other scripts as well. Any holy script passing through "man" hands is suspect. Not only getting each word right, etc. but also using the right connotation for each word. The same word can mean many different things to different people, eh? That's one thing I talked about going around looking at so much Christian history and early evidence of the Church. Unless divined onto the page by some godly force--God's own printing press--it's suspect and can't be taken word for word. That's my jive and I'm sticking too it.

Merry Christ-mas(s) folks.

Happy Holidays (whatever)

I'll be thinking of you.
