Is the use of as in the following acceptable now :"As remarkable as the revelation is , more remarlable is the story that accompanies it."( cf. The "Perfect Aryan"Child ,The washington Post, July 4, 2014) ? As far as I know, most people would prefer to say :Remarkable as/though the revelation is....What do you think?

Hello, Pal, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange!

I'm curious about your use of "now" in the question of whether the construction is acceptable now. Have you read something that condemns the construction or that claims it is (or was, in some period of history) substandard and not simply a variant of the construction you personally prefer?
