[sword-devel] New filter for red letter words

I have a rhetorical question, if a user was to desire to read Jesus' words
in green rather than black or red, should it be allowed and should we
I know it is a dumb question.

it wasn't my intention to start a flame war :)
We just remove the red color, but no text. The red color was added later by
the translators but it's no in the original ancient texts. Just like
footnotes. Or am I wrong here?
It's the users choice if he likes Jesus' words in red or black, isn't it?
And I didn't implemented this because of the sword-support eMail but because
wanted the filter myself.
But if Troy says this it's wrong what I did I'll remove it.
