Didn't the Catholic Bible come before the King James?  If I remember right, the King James version was made because King James wanted to divorce his wife and the current Bible of the time didn't allow for that.  According to that little sentence that says it's a horrible, unforgivable sin to change the word of God, King James is the one who is in Hell.   

No, I don't think he thought it through.  They never do.  Extremist morons like him have such flawed logic that poking holes in it is way too easy.

Err... wrong British monarch. That was Henry the VIII (I am, I am), and that wasn't so much to do with the Bible as the Church. The Catholics don't believe in divorce and Henry wanted a son and thought it the fault of his wives. So he created the Church of England, the head of which was he.

He killed his wives.  He had them all beheaded.  That was how he was able to get married over and over again.

First one was divorced
Second (Anne Boleyn) was beheaded
Third one died
Fourth was divorced
Fifth was beheaded
Sixth one survived (because Henry died).

King James was the sponsor of the first officially sanctioned (by the British Crown) translation of the bible into English.  The Catholic Bible, the Vulgate, was in Latin.  One of the big things about the Reformation was that the Protestants did not believe that someone else, a priest, should stand between a man and his God.  Unfortunately, since there were no approved English Bible translations, and not everyone who could read English could read Latin all that well, this was a fine principle without practical use, since they'd need someone who could read Latin to translate and interpret it.

There's nothing so specially holy about the King James translation; it's just that people love the archaic language.  There are plenty of places where its translation is considered questionable.
