"The Latin Vulgate (see the Douay-Rheims Bible) indicates that the effeminate will not inherit the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:10). But the New American Bible, which is used by the USCCB, omits the word effeminate:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (Latin Vulgate):
Verse 9: "Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: Neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers:
an nescitis quia iniqui regnum Dei non possidebunt nolite errare neque fornicarii neque idolis servientes neque adulteri
Verse 10: Nor the effeminate nor liers with mankind nor thieves nor covetous nor drunkards nor railers nor extortioners shall possess the kingdom of God.
neque molles neque masculorum concubitores neque fures neque avari neque ebriosi neque maledici neque rapaces regnum Dei possidebunt."
1Corinthians 6: 9-10 (New American Bible) posted online by the USCCB:
Verse 9: "Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor sodomites
Verse 10: nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Interesting. I always use the Douay-Rheims because of its faithfulness to the Vulgate but also because of the beauty of the language. Sometimes, though the use of language may be a bit archaic, I get insight that I never get with the NAB or RSVCE.
Regardless, as the writer at LaSalette asks:
"Why do you think this is so? The Latin Vulgate, which we have obtained from the great St. Jerome, is the most precise translation of the Sacred Scriptures available. There are many other problems with recent translations of the Scriptures. But my focus here is on this passage. Why has the word "effeminate" been dropped from 1 Corinthians 6?"
I don't know but I'm sure going to find out. I can make some guesses here based on certain proclivities toward the feminine that I have personally observed in many priests over the years, a proclivity I tend to believe exists all the way to the very highest levels in the Vatican and academia. I would also guess that this is further evidence of the evils of political correctness and it's Marxist roots infecting the Church. And of course the homosexuality that underlies the sexual abuse crisis does come to mind.
While I go in search of some answers I'd like to leave you with another passage from the Bible, Douay-Rheims version, of course:
"And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from these things that are written in this book."
How deeply has the evil penetrated into the core of Holy Mother Church?
