Actually, she died about a month ago, but it's apparently only become public now.


Mollenkott, you may recall, was an English stylist for the NIV before it was well known that she was a lesbian, causing KJV nuts to wax prolific, if not particularly eloquent, about how the translation was pro-gay (as if one English professor could control the direction of an entire biblical translation committee). Her book Is the Homosexual My Neighbour?, co-authored with Leah Scanzoni, was one of the seminal "evangelical" defenses of homosexual relations as a lawful sexuality. As Al Mohler put it just a few moments ago, Mollenkott was a "huge influence for rejecting biblical truth."


Welp. She has received the due penalty of her errors now.

There are no lesbians in Hell. Tragic.

She was a "switch-hitter", having been married to a man & having at least 1 son.

And she was used as a CONSULTANT in English style by the NIV makers, on a part-time "as needed" basis. She did no translating & was not a member of the NIV-making committee. Her role was quite-minor in its making, & once her orientation was discovered by the committee, they didn't use her again.
