STEPHEN A. COSTON, SR.
The Latest Evidence Supporting the Godly Character of the Most High and Mighty Prince James By the Grace of God, King of England,
Scotland, France, Ireland, Wales, Defender of the Faith, and Renowned Christian King.
The Myth & His Maligners
"You've Heard James' Critics, Now Read the Truth!"
James wrote in his work Basilicon Doron that:
"There are some horrible crimes that ye are bound in conscience never to forgive: such as witchcraft, willful murder, incest, and sodomy."
There is no recorded objective documentation that King James ever practiced or promoted sodomy, the historical record only knows of King James' heterosexuality and condemnation of sodomy.
"There are a number of recorded statements in which James justified homosexuality/sodomy...King James was a homosexual monarch."
King James condemned "soft delicacies" in a man more than once:
"But especially eschew to be effeminate in your clothes, in perfuming, preening, or such like...and make not a fool of yourself in diguising or wearing long your hair or nails, which are but excrements of nature...Guard against corrupt leide and effeminate ones."
The King also condemned "female transvestism" by instructing the clergy by royal order and express commandment to inveigh vehemently in their sermons against the faddish practice.
James was effeminate and encouraged his favorites to also be effeminate.
King James wrote to his wife Queen Anne:
"I thank God I carry that love and respect unto you which by the law of God and nature, I ought to do to my wife and mother of my children...for the respect of your honorable birth and decent I married you but the love and respect I now bear you for that ye are my married wife and so partaker of my honor...God as my witness ever I preferred you to all my bairns much more than any subject (signed) Your Own, James Rex."
King James also wrote love poetry to his wife and in addition to this James also wrote of Anne:
"...if it were possible for me to love her better than ever I did before it were my part to do it."
After her death, James wrote, "She was an excellent wife to us...she has left a great longing for her." The Mighty King James had 8 children with his wife Queen Anne.
King James did not love his wife, disliked the institution of marriage and women in general.
"And there must go much more to the make of a guilty man than rumor."
The court is now in session, read for yourself what has been hidden on the shelves of libraries around the world and which will now travel through the reaches of time to vanquish ignorance and repression of the Godly character of one of the most famous and learned princes of the Jacobean world - King James VI & I.
