Translating the Holy Bible to Patois

Recently there was a popular talk show that did a survey on what citizens of Jamaica would think about having the Holy Bible translated to Patois.
Now I'm bringing this question to my set of people to hear their take. I personally don't like the idea but what the's just a question with your personal opinion..
What do you think about the idea of translating the Holy Bible to Patois?

It's a nice idea but we have to be serious here. Ptios has no set writing style or dialect. It would just be for kicks but I can guarantee you that 50% of Jamaicans wouldn't be able to read it.

It would be a good idea to me because I can read it, but what about those who can't which is more than 85% of the Jamaican population.

C'mon people, be practical. Just mentally translate one Bible verse to patios and tell me how ridiculous it sounds. That would be utter rubish. Noone recognizes patois anywhere else in the world. If it was translated it would be for Jamaicans only, and knowing us, a friend would buy one copy and everybody else would photocopy or bootleg it, so it wouldn't sell. There's no purpose for it.

*Sigh* another rich idea, i'm all for it as long as long they don't really use it. It makes no sense to be teaching "English Language" then going around to teach Patois in school. Thats nonsense as Patois has no structure as it varies and if they try to standardize its going to be confusing. Don't tell me they have ran out of subjects to teach at school?

t a long term relationship or a short fling? You have to make choices as well if you want to continue a relationship or not. If you made the right choice when it comes to your partners or not.

If you have an entrance or an exit to an area or premises that receives a high amount of traffic, but still requires a relatively high level of security, it may be to your benefit to consider installing a security gate. Overhead doors employed in warehouses and factories may be convenient, but they may not be secure enough. In addition to being easily compressed or
