Well, that's a sticky situation, considering it's going on a website. ;)
Poking around last night, I found that the American Standard Version is in the public domain (not the New American Standard Version though). So, I think I'll take a look at that and use it if the portions I want to use are not too dissimilar.
I'd hate to have to avoid ever visiting the U.K. for the rest of my life. ;)
As for the "religious debate," the original Bible is not copyrighted, but the various translations (a derivative work of a public domain work) are copyrightable.
One reason for copyrighting a translation of the Bible is to protect the integrity of the work. In the U.S., the "Revised Version" was not protected by copyright, so various publishers printed Bibles and called them the "Revised Version." But, they could each make changes so every "Revised Version" could be different. So, the American Standard Version was copyrighted so that no one else could publish that same translation and call it the American Standard Version.
It's difficult to "spread the Word" if everyone's Bible is different. "Hey, my Bible doesn't say that!" Not that having various versions of the Bible doesn't make for some confusion, but at least each version can be standardized so that people can be sure they are at least looking at the same version.
