The accusation, made by Adam Nicolson in "Power and Glory" (page 99), that Richard Thompson (just one translator) was a drunkard, is based on the historical account of one extreme Puritan called William Prynne. It is usual that those against the KJB will go out of their way to quote this single source.

Nicolson takes a giant leap, on page 192, he says, "The eccentric Bedwell, and drunk pornographer Thompson..."

This is called historical revisionism. It is in line with the sensational reporting that the smallest unreliable details of badness be blown up to make the godly men the worst that ever lived. Just look at how King James is made into a tyrant and child abuser!
