Amazon.com has been accused of ‘censorship’ by angry Twitter users after it banned a ‘gayer’ version of the Holy Bible, written by a US vlogger Elijah Daniel. The book’s PDF version is up for sale on a website created by Daniel himself.
King James Version may be everyone’s favourite but Daniel’s version (EDV) is a little different. It has singer Rihanna playing God, US President Donald Trump as Satan and Jesus turning water into mimosas (A cocktail) instead of wine.

Daniel has changed half the words in the Holy Bible to ‘make it gayer’.
The 2,355 page book’s listing page on Amazon is filled with five star ratings and rave reviews. “If you liked the King James Version, you will love the Elijah Daniel Version. Well maybe not. But it will change your life. It’s such an eye opener, and it will give you a new outlook on life. And it will probably make you gayer than you already are, comments one user.

Where's the freedom of speech crowd? Where's the outrage?! This is censorship!— ben but angery (@benmcramer) September 18, 2017
The EDV has changed all the weapons in the Christian text to dildos, the Garden of Eden is now West Hollywood and the word ‘smite’ has been replaced with ‘smooched’.
“If me rewriting the Bible & p****** y’all off makes just one lil closeted kid realize it’s not that serious then f*** ya b**** keep it comin [sic]” tweeted Daniel, defending his book.
There are a few social media users who have been offended by the EDV.

Daniel is most famous for becoming the mayor of Michigan’s Hell for less than a day in August this year and banning heterosexual people from the town. He says his satirical gay Bible is for the queer community that was made miserable by the teachings of Christianity, including himself, according to a report on pride.com
