Update for “Sue the Publisher”

“Don’t like what the Bible says?  Sue the Publisher” is one of the more popular things I’ve written lately.  On Saturday, more people viewed that post than hit my site searching for Outrigger Island.  I’ve learned a little more about this story in the mean time:

Pictured above is Bradley Fowler.  In my original article, I mentioned several publishers that had better get ready to be next, and one of them was Thomas Nelson.  It turns out Fowler has already filed suit against Thomas Nelson as well.  Zondervan says Fowler is putting fault in the wrong place, pointing out that none of the translation they publish were translated in house.  Fowler’s claim is that these publishers intentionally crafted a religious judgment that homosexuals were sinners.  I wonder if Fowler ever read the King James Bible?  In the case of the KJV, it has been around so long it is public domain; there were no copyrights in 1611.  There’s no one to sue if you don’t like what the KJV has to say.  Of course, my original premise has not changed:


I’ve also learned that people having been sueing publishing companies in Canada – and winning – so we shouldn’t be surprised that it finally happened here.  Fowler is representing himself in both cases, and you know how that usually turns out.  Will someone please hurry up and throw this case out of court so the overworked system can move on to a real case.  May God have mercy on us all.

  1. I completely agree with you.
    I’d like to see people who sue others, if lose serve time, if what they said was intentionally false. This dude makes false accusations, for this matter he himself should go to jail.
    this is disgraceful. homosexuals attacking.

  2. One thing for sure we need to pray for this man. If he has been so involved in reading the Bible after his jail term, why hasn’t he learned that the Bible condems this ungodly life-style. Read waht happened in Jude 7 to Soddom and Ghmorra.

    1st Corinthians also teaches in Chapter 2 that the natural man can not understand the word of God because it is spiritally decerned. Obviously Mr Fowler has a form of godliness but denying the power thereof!

    We should not be surprised at these attacks on God’s word. That same Bible has pegged Mr. Fowler perfectly. He is an apostate, according to 2 Peter, and Jude. They are ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into laciviousness, or perversion.

    Jude told us as believers to Earnestly contend for the faith! We must fight for truth, suffer persecution, and stand against the attacks of the devil.

    All this must be done with love and compassion for people like Mr. Fowler who despretely needs to be saved from the wrath to come, which is defined in the Word of God as judgement by God on the unrighteous. Jude says God is coming back with 10 thousands of His saints to execute judgement on all the ungodly sinners, and all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed.

    Stand on God’s word! All of it! It truly seperates the wheats from the tears. God have mercy on the homosexual agenda in America! Would to God that we would turn our faces towards God once again! 2 Chronicles 7:14

  3. This is the first I am hearing about this. I found it rather intriguing as I might be interestied in suing a religion – Islam. But anyway, I pulled out my New International Version of the bible to see for myself what it said. I thought it was very ironic that 1st Corinthians 6 was about lawsuits among believers before it spoke of sexual immorality and then ended with ‘But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.! One could take that to mean that homesexuality is OK now if you believe in Jesus Christ as Lord. But, he is sinning by suing his fellow believers! Now what?

    So, now, how about suing Islam? Can you help me with that?

  4. Thanks for you comments, Lynn. There is a lot ironic about this case.

    As for suing a religion: the religion of Chrisianity is not being sued, but a publisher of the Bible. I don’t know how one would go about suing any religion. Outside of the United States, Islam is very popular. Don’t be fooled into thinking the world is turning against Muslims. We may have done that in the U.S., but Islam as a religion continues to grow in most of the world, most recently in Europe it has taken a foothold. To sue a person or organization, you must proved they have broken the law and harmed you in some way. You might sue a Muslim or a Muslim organization, but I see no possible way to sue their religion. Islam is not a person, nor a business run out of a warehouse somewhere. It is a thought, an idea, a set of values and beliefs, as all religion are. Sorry, I don’t see how you can sue it.

  5. Yeah, I know. I was just venting a bit there. But I might be able to sue Saudi Arabia for their publications that they put out that promotes their perverted version of Islam. I’ll look into it because I think I may have heard something about the 9/11 victims had Saudi Arabia on a class action suit. But, I might be making that up.
