Was that Deal or Purdue that held a prayer on the capital steps for rain a few years back? Did he pray to the rain god or just the regular god? Ha
Upper case Jesus loves you. :)
Students can pray in public schools. Where have you been squawker? It's the school systems that are in fear of a lengthy litigation by those few who threaten with a lawsuit if prayer is said at a HS football game, or assembly, etc. It is the school systems that should say, "Bring it on!" Instead, they cower when the receive a letter of protest from the ACLU, SPLC, NAACP, NAMBLA, or any other screw ball organization.
What a moron we have for a Governor. Sorry but I am agnostic and find this to be a wrong move.
I'd rather have the bible in the drawer of the nightstand than the Quran. either way, if you don't like it being there just simply keep the drawer closed and don't worry about it. Like georgiagranny said, it's not like the bible will come out and bite you in your sleep.
And what if the Governor was Muslim? Would we be applauding if he mandaded the Koran was to be placed in the State of Georgia's lodges and cabins? Or a Morman placing the Book of Morman in all the State's rooms? There will be a law suit against the State of Georgia over this. It reeks of State imposed religion.
How does putting donated Bibles in the bedside table of a state lodge reek of state imposed religion?
The lodge, inn, hotel or where ever could simply have the Bible available at the front desk, just like they have extra amenities, such as pillows, shampoo, etc. Make the Bible, Koran,or other religious material available upon request. In todays world of technology, most folks have the information right at their fingertips, so I fail to see what all the fuss is about.
I agree with your statement, mercat13. Good idea about having it be at the front desk. I don't go the lodge I vacation at to look thru the nightstand to make sure a bible is there so don't know what the big deal is.
I bet his phone was ringing off the hook!
Most hotels would be happy to put the Book of Morman and the Koran if someone wants to pay for it. The Muslims would rather kill and main instead of using money for Bibles.
