Catholic bishops have kicked the word ''booty'' out of the Bible.
The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has ordered a new translation of the Bible, one it says is more accurate, more accessible and more poetic.
Now ''booty'', a word that sets off snigger's in Sunday school, will be replaced by the ''spoils'' of war when the newest edition of the New American Bible, the English-language Catholic Bible, comes out tomorrow.
''We needed a new translation because English is a living language,'' says retired auxiliary bishop of Milwaukee Richard Sklba, one of the bishops on the review and editing team.
Fifty scholars and translators, linguistics experts, theologians and five bishops spent 17 years on the project.
Political correctness gone feral!!
