Al Gore Has an Embarrassing Mix-up While Trying to Quote His Favorite Bible Verse-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
This email alleges that during a presidential campaign speech, Al Gore told a crowd that his faith was very important to him and that his favorite Bible verse was John 16:3. It was obviously a reference to the well known passage in John 3:16 which says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (NIV) John 16:3, however, says, “They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me.” (NIV)
There is no evidence this ever happened to Al Gore. None of the reports talks about a verifiable date, place, and time of this statement. No documented occasions have been found. At the very least, this is an unsubstantiated story. Christian author Cal Thomas, however, says he was present at a convention in Washington, D.C. when that slip of the lip did occur…but to then President George Bush, not Al Gore.
