The Bible 2: the uncensored version

censoring the bible

Matthew Stillman sure is an unusual guy. Since 2009, in example, he has been conducting an experiment in Union square, New York city, in which he sets up a table and two folding chairs. There is a jar labeled ‘pay what you like or take what you need’, and a sign that reads ‘creative approaches to what you have been thinking about’: passerbys sit down and discuss their issues with him, figuring out together ways to solve their problems. Stillman also developed the Western edition of the Iron cheftelevision show, does improve and writes book. Like, the Bible.
In fact, his latest work is Genesis deflowered – a sort of “uncensored director’s cut” of the holy book… with all the naughty parts reinstated wherever the King James’ version glosses over the details. And it glosses a lot – not only in the few episodes more or less everyone remembers, but in literally hundreds of pretty raunchy instances which, as they say, had to be finally told. This would sound pretty juvenile, until you learn that the “new” paragraphs are actually written in the same Elizabethan style of the original – making it as literarily interesting as they are malicious. Only time will tell whether there really is a market for biblical porn, but one thing is sure: the plot certainly beats a certain trilogy
