I have no problem with the Gideons, but I wonder if they still hand out King James Version Bibles. On the one hand you don't have to pay a fee to print KJV Bibles and I guess all Evangelicals aprove of it, but on the other hand I have to wonder how many people can still read it these days.

I was going to ask the same thing! My kids were handed Gideon bibles in the KJV about 3 years ago... they never cracked the covers. I love the positive stories, but I wonder how many 1000's of negative ones like mine get told?? If they want to make themselves more influential, I hope they'll use a more readable & more accurate version!
