No, this is not a story from Babylon Bee.
The Blaze is reporting that a group of feminist theologians are publishing their own Bible and it will provide “alternative interpretations of traditional scripture and aims to challenge text that might justify the subjugation of women.”
From The Blaze:
The authors of “A Woman’s Bible” assert that they “are tired of seeing their holy text used to subjugate women” and will use their own translation as a tool to teach Christianity in a way that does not portray women as subservient
Christian feminist scholars assert in the book that women in the Bible appear in a negative light as servants or prostitutes who dance for a king or kneel before Jesus’ feet.
Pat pointed out that while it is true that women in the Bible are found kneeling before Jesus to kiss his feet, this was not a negative portrayal of women but rather an act of humility.
The new version of the Bible is being pushed as a rewriting in the era of the #MeToo movement and the authors told Yahoo Lifestyle the book is a “tool for women’s emancipation. Emancipation for women is the freedom to live as a person, not as a rule, the freedom to choose what is the ‘best part,’ not to conform to norms,”
“We want to empower women and men to live who they are, in confidence to their vocation as Christians, and we transmit the message that the biblical texts are not a hindrance to this freedom to become who we are called to become: fully human.”
This quote says it all "We are fighting against a literal reading of the texts". #WordofGod #Bible See : In the #MeToo era, theologians publish 'Women's Bible' https://t.co/KABFhXmhXY pic.twitter.com/Fw5dK3F7fl
