Bible Society Turns Down Bible Printing Request

(AP) CORONA, Calif. Two Corona pastors who minister to the adult film industry have hit a roadblock in their crusade. Their publishing company is refusing to print bibles with the brand “Jesus Loves Porn Stars” emblazoned on the cover.

Pastors Mike Foster and Craig Gross are the founders of the anti-porn Internet ministry XXXchurch.com. They hand out copies of the New Testament at adult film conventions.

They thought putting an edgy cover on the bibles could get them attention and increase their distribution.

So they paid the American Bible Society (ABS) to print 10,000 copies of the Scriptures. But the publisher backed down after hearing about the cover concept.

The ABS says while it appreciates the pastors’ mission, the words “Jesus Loves Porn Stars” are �misleading and inappropriate for a New Testament.”
