Everyone knows that the Bible is a sacred book. One could say that is a well known fact.
Yet, this did not stop a YouTube comedian called Elijah Daniel from rewriting it and turning into a gay book filled with a lot of scandalous replacements!
He announced his intention via a series of tweets on Friday, September 15, 2017.
As you may have guessed, this version bears very little similarities to the original one.
In Daniel’s gayer version, Rihanna is God, Carly Rae Jepsen replaces Noah while Jesus turns water into mimosas, not wine.
The only seemingly acceptable thing (if you ask some people) is that Donald Trump is Satan.
Apart from that, the gayer Bible is basically a blasphemy, something many Christians wasted no time pointing out.
To the criticism, Elijah said, “all I did was rewrite your ideology against you to show you how stupid you look and you made yourselves look dumber that’s a f***in talent”.
Speaking with Billboard, he revealed his reasons for depicting Rihanna as God, and Donald Trump as Satan.
According to the son of a "super religious family" and pastor father, he chose the pop star because she is not the obvious choice. Her clapback tweets were used to replace God's passages.
He said, “It’s just obvious. I feel like everybody would expect a Beyoncé, but I just feel like Rihanna is the perfect fit.”
On choosing Donald Trump, he said the president “wasn’t the obvious choice. I feel like Satan in the Bible is a slick, tempting, good character, not just a [blob] of human waste. It’s more of a compliment to him than anything.”
Taylor Swift can be found in the book as the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the disciples are drag queens while Ryan Murphy, Ryan Seacrest and Shawn Mendes simply make appearances.
The book is dedicated to Ellen DeGeneres.
Daniel’s version of the Bible was written in three days. His book has been turned it into a Kindle edition on Amazon.
It was number one with 4.9 stars out of 5 from over 100 reviews until it was briefly taken down.
According to the Independent, this was an accident that was eventually fixed. The response to the gayer Bible may produce a sequel.
This is not Daniel’s first attempt at something like this. In 2016, he wrote a gay erotic novel that featured Donald Trump.
The 10-page erotic novella was titled: ‘Trump Temptation: The Billionaire & The Bellboy.’
Speaking with Huffington Post, he said, “It’s been a long-running Twitter joke spread by my followers that I’m Donald’s gay lover. Which is not true, Mom. I promise.”
“Everyone’s loved it, weirdly enough. I thought I’d at least get a little bit of negativity, but I really haven’t.”
The positive response to the Trump gay erotica caused Daniel to launch other non-controversial projects.
