Gay Man Sues Bible Publisher

“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 LaSawn 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. Fowler, who is representing himself in both lawsuits, says in his complaint that the Bible companies are ‘causing me, and others, who is homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate and physical violence—including murder.’” (WorldNetDaily. 7/10/08.)
