Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

12 Reasons I Use a King James Bible: Copyright

The King James Bible has no copyright. For the sake of argument, how do you copyright God's Holy Scriptures? How to you get the up the audacity to put a "copyright-use with permission" proviso on the Holy Bible? Also, does the Holy Spirit get a cut of the royalties? How does that work? Can you actually copyright the words of Christ? Unless, of course, the manuscripts they are translating from are not in fact holy. But that's a whole other post!

In order to get a separate copyright, the new work must be at least 10% different than the original work. Therefore, the butchered and twisted wording is an awkward attempt to get a new Bible published so that it can start making somebody some $$$$.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. (I Cor 2:12)
