What a lot of fundies don't seem to grasp is that the "authorized" in "Authorized Version" is short for "...by the Church of England for use in public worship"; it's essentially the traditional lectionary Bible of the Anglican Communion, and held pride of place for centuries. I don't see many of the people who think it should still be used joining the Episcopal Church if they like the Anglican leaders telling them what Bible is fit to read. Of course, we now have other authorized versions that see much more use, though I don't know of any list of Anglican-approved bibles that does NOT include the King James translation.
