Conservative Bible Project: Schlafly’s “Liberal” Translators

A user, now banned, popped up on the talk page for the Conservative Bible project and posted a list of name (as shown below) These are people who have worked on Bible translations in the past and I assume the author was making the point that Andy is calling these eminent scholars “liberal” (then again, the new user might have been unaware of Andy’s view on Professor Values). Even so, this list makes for impressive reading:

Dr. Boyce Blackwelder. Anderson College, Anderson, Indiana.

  • Dr. E. M. Blaiklock. Professor Emeritus of Classics, University of Auckland, Titirangi, Auckland, New Zealand.
  • Dr. James L. Boyer. Professor Emeritus of New Testament and Greek, Grace Theological Seminary Winona Lake, Indiana.
  • Dr. John A. Burns. Academic Dean, Luther Rice Seminary, Jacksonville, Florida.
  • William J. Cameron. Principal Emeritus, Free Church of Scotland College, Edinburgh, Scotland.
  • Dr. A. Glenn Campbell. Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Greek, and Theology, Montana Institute of the Bible, Ottawa, Kansas.
  • Dr. Gary C. Cohen. Lecturer, Miami Christian College, Miami, Florida.
  • Dr. Huber L. Drumwright. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.
  • Dr. William K. Eichhorst. President of Academic Affairs, Winnipeg Bible College and Theological Seminary, Otterburne, Manitoba, Canada.
  • Dr. Virtus E. Gideon. Professor of New Testament and Greek, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.
  • Dr. Robert L. Hendren. Minister, Donelson Church of Christ, Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Dr. Robert G. Hoerber. Professor of Exegetical Theology, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri.
  • Dr. Ronald Jones. Associate Professor, Victory Tabernacle Baptist Church, Norfolk, Virginia.
  • Dr. Charles R. Smith. Professor of Christian Theology and Greek, Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana.
  • Dr. John A. Sproule. Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek, Grace Theological Seminary, Winona Lake, Indiana.
  • Dr. Harry A. Sturz. Professor Emeritus of Greek, Biola College, La Mirada, California.
  • Dr. Joseph S. Wang. Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky.
  • Dr. Phillip R. Williams. Registrar, Professor of New Testament, Northwest Baptist Seminary, Tacoma, Washington.
  • Dr. A. Skevington Wood. Principal, Cliff College, Calver, Sheffield, England.
  • Dr. Arthur L. Farstad. New Testament Editor, Dallas, Texas.
  • Dr. Lewis A. Foster. Professor of New Testament, Cincinnati Seminary, Cincinnati, Ohio.

Now that’s a long list, and well-littered with Drs. Andy, of course, legitimises the list of experts and writes them off, using the worst crime he can think of, voting for Obama. Nope, when it comes to the Ultimate Bible Translation, nobody is better suited for the job, than an idiot with a B.Sc and an JD (just a high falutin equivalent  to an LL.B) degree. (Yes, ok, normally an idiot wouldn’t have two degrees, but most idiots don’t have their mummies to buy them for them).

About PsyGremlin

PsyGremlin is a former Conservapedia sysop (although the position was earned nefariously), stand up comedian, DJ, and is currently a self-employed financial adviser, who impersonates a responsible adult at least 5 days a week. However, highlighting and poking fun at the crazies out there remains his first love. Well besides pork crackling. And custard. And cricket.

    Actually Andy has a JD.

    I tried to see who if any of them donated to political parties not a return of any of them. I was hoping to regale you with statistics on their political party alliances but none of them are active enough to show up. Oh well.

    Whoops. Let me correct that… although I see the Law School Bible says “This “new” law degree was designed as a replacement or alternative to its academic equivalent, the LLB or Bachelor of Laws degree. Odd as it may seem, the Juris Doctor is not, however, a terminal degree in terms of academic research degrees, and rarely, are its holders acknowledged with the title of “doctor”. While most U.S. law schools now only offer the Juris Doctor as a first professional law degree, some continue to offer the LLB as well. Some law school graduates actually prefer to be conferred with the LLB over the JD.” So as with all things related to Andy, it looks better on the surface than it actually is.

    Thanks for that! I think just the fact that they don’t appear is a pretty good indication, although no doubt Andy would just claim they’re all part of Obama’s hidden agenda.

      JD programs in the US require applicants to hold a prior undergraduate degree unlike other bachelor degree programs. A JD is ranked as a doctorate level degree by US universities and colleges because it requires the coursework equivalent of a combined masters and doctorate degree in other acaedemic fields. All of these characteristics also applied to the former LLB degree program (last offered in the US in 1971). We are rarely referred to as “doctor” because centuries ago we reserved the far cooler and more stylish title of “esquire.” Give a little credit to Mr. Bitter where credit is due.
