You have to come from a very, very specific background for this particular letter on the firing of a Heartland Baptist teacher to make any sense. And the fact that I actually understand it makes me question my own sanity.
Also, when did we start putting periods between the letters of KJV?
If your parents made you cross out verses in your children’s books and re-write them with the RIGHT Bible…you might have been a fundamentalist.
(Many thanks to the SFL reader who found these books from his childhood and passed these photos along)
The devil comes in many disguises, brothers and sisters. We just cannot be too careful.

I think I’m going to have to start a Pinterest board for these wild-eyed graphics. (What, you didn’t know that SFL was on Pinterest?)
There’s nothing like watching a bunch of Irish kids at a fundy youth camp run by Bible Baptist Church of Balllincollig sing the praises of the KJV.
Because Ireland just didn’t have enough fighting fundamentalists so we decided to send them some more.
Update 1: A few folks have questioned whether the song above is really a praise of the KJV since the version isn’t explicitly mentioned. I suppose my own bias is somewhat at work here since I’ve never heard this song sung by anybody but KJVO folks and the line “I haven’t changed one word that it said” definitely seems to fit that particular camp.
However, whether or not this song is specifically about the King James, the church in the video is definitely heavily promoting a KJVO point of view.
