It hasn't? I certainly meet people who believe that any other version is somehow evil, that ONLY the KJV is correct, as if the Bible had been written in that Early Modern English, and all other versions were translations of it (which I suspect many of those KJV-supporters believe). And anyway, it's my preferred version for the Psalms. Of course, I also prefer the "Our Father who art in heaven ..." to the Contemporary English version. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
