Are you worried about the differences between the Gospels?

The political world of 2017 seems a funny place. In the wake of the festival of nightmares that was 2016, the terms Fake News and Alternative Facts have emerged around the internet.
Obviously it can be argued that these are both fancy marketing terms for well placed lies, or at least, a way of helping the establishment make its point of view.
What if the Bible was re-edited for an age of alternative facts?
What would that look like?
Would an alternative fact bible look something like this?
Any other ideas for verses that could have the alternative fact treatment?
Our alphabetical guide to church life continues with…
aka “The Good Book”. Its generally thought that reading the Bible is a good thing. Reading things that help you read the bible is also considered a good thing. Lots of people try and read the Bible in a year. Last September we tried reading the Bible in a year. One of us got stuck around last November. The other is trapped around July.
Many people seem to agree that the Bible is a good thing to read. Actually reading it seems to be something else.

Aka. The Boss. It was confirmed by the synod last year that while The Church of England is perfectly OK with women being a Church Minister / Vicar / Pastor… the idea of a woman being in charge was not really acceptable in these modern times.
The Boss sometimes visits churches to perform special things… like blessing a new church roof… or something. You can tell if he’s around due to the Church Warden using the following checklist.
1.Is the pastoral team wearing the correct liturgical uniform?
2.Do we have the correct amount of communion wine in stock?
3.Have “those” children been locked away in the crèche?
4.Has crèche been relocated into the basement?
5.Has the building been dusted? (In and out – yes including the tower)
6.New red carpet rolled out?
7.Crowd been taught correct responses?
8.Crowd now informed they are the “congregation”?
9.Do the “Sunday Morning Welcomer’s” look smart enough?
10.Does the communion wine have another alcohol in to ensure its elevated above the level of Ribena?
Any I’ve missed?
