When King James-I was about age 14-15, he was seduced by a homosexual, French Nobleman, Esme Stuart d' Aubigny, who was a distant relative visiting the young "orphan King" and was 24 years his senior. (His father was killed after James' birth, his mother in prison for decades). The affair became so serious that advisers to King James ran the relative out of the country, and threatened him with death if he returned.

He had many male lovers hie whole life, and the crowds commonly yelled "Queen James!" as he rode through the streets of London.

He was called out by the British Parliament in later years about his blatantly public homosexual behaviour, to which he gave a most notable answer: He accused Jesus Christ of having young John His disciple (probably age 17-19) for his male lover, hence the origin of calling such sexual partners "Johns".

When questioned, King James declared to the Privy Council:

"I, James, am neither a god nor an angel, but a man like any other. Therefore I act like a man and confess ... that I love the Earl of Buckingham more than anyone else,... (his long term lover whom he often called "Wife" in public);

I wish to speak in my own behalf and not to have it thought to be a defect, For Jesus Christ did the same, and therefore I cannot be blamed. Christ had his John, and I have my George

King James was buried between two homosexual lovers in his mausoleum, George Villiers, 1st Duke of Buckingham (1592-1628) on his left hand and Ludovic Stuart, Duke of Richmond and Lennox (1574-1624). His tomb is a tourist attraction in London today.

There is a great host of his openly homosexual personal letters still extant, as well as quotes from other world figures, either rebuking or supporting his gay activities.


That King James-I was such an ardent homosexual accounts for a motivation to "waste" so much tax money "re-translating" the Holy Bible. In his Pro-Gay KJV Version, he erased 26 "anti-homosexual references in the Greek language" . . . and every such denunciation by Christ Himself, inserting words benign to homosexuals.

It was not until 1946 that this blatant changing of God's word was realized, and the Revised Version re-inserted the clear admonitions against homosexuality.

Amazingly, the Conservative Bible Christians almost worship King James equal to Christ - with many claiming in most unbelievable ignorance - that a person can't be a Christian without using the King James Bible - equally ignorant of the fact that their "Hero King James" was homosexual of the most blatant degree which they detest.

Such ignorance is beyond comprehension. No wonder Christianity is dying in the Western World.
