Dale,
You miss the context. The original discussion was that the King James Bible
is not `documentation' and should be moved from the docs section into 
another one,
e.g. books (the name of the `other one' section is under discussion). 
Everybody
agreed (that's my impression at least), that this was legitimate, since 
someone
could upload the Koran, Alice in Wonderland, or other texts [I'm kidding 
at the
moment, since I don't now which of these texts are really free].
