Bradley LaShawn Fowler claims that the versions of the Bible the aforementioned publishers put out state that homosexuality is sinful — and that has led Fowler to suffer “discrimination, emotional pain and mental instability.”
Fowler also claims the bible passages in question leads him “…or anyone who is a homosexual to endure verbal abuse, discrimination, episodes of hate, and physical violence … including murder,”
He is seeking $60 million from Zondervan and $10 million from Thomas Nelson.
What do you think of this lawsuit? If holy texts contain teachings that might lead to other people being discriminated against, is that libel of some kind? And what do you think the outcome of the lawsuit might be?
