Woman Horrified to Find Bible in Her Northern Illinois University Hotel Room: ‘It’s bad manners’

You know what’s also bad manners? Being such an insufferable douchebag that the mere sight of a Bible causes a meltdown.

Guests seeking a Bible at Northern Illinois University‘s campus hotel now must call the front desk after a secular group complained that the sacred scripture had no place in the nightstand.

Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, discovered a Bible in a drawer last month during a stay on the DeKalb campus where she had been invited to speak by the Secular Student Alliance. Upon her return home, the foundation’s lawyer wrote a letter to the Holmes Student Center director requesting the books be removed.

“It sends a message of endorsement — ‘We think it’s so important you can’t possibly go to sleep at night without your Christian Bible in your bedside table‘,” Gaylor said. “It’s proselytizing in the privacy of a room you probably paid a lot of money for. It’s bad manners.”

Brad Hoey, a university spokesman, said the student center removed the Bibles immediately, even though they had been in the rooms for a number of years.

“We’re very conscious of the separation of church and state,” Hoey said. “We also embrace our diverse and inclusive culture. Those who wish to have access to the Bibles can have access to them on the premises.”

What sad, pathetic,m empty lives these people have. Can you imagine what a hard-on you have to be to immediately upon entering a hotel room you go in search of a Bible — just so you can complain. Get over yourselves already.

While finding Bibles in private hotels rooms is “obnoxious,” she said, finding them in public accommodations is unconstitutional.

But only in recent years have institutions started to listen, Gaylor said. Bibles recently were removed from hotels at the University of Iowa and the University of Wisconsin after the foundation complained. The foundation also recently asked the National Park Service to remove Bibles from lodges at Yellowstone National Park.

“Even if it takes three decades of education, we’re finally persuading public officials,” Gaylor said. “It’s an anachronism. As this country becomes more and more secular, more and more people are offended. It’s a constant mop-up job.”

Really? Weird, but we never hear about this from anyone, except of course troublemakers like this obnoxious woman. By the way, we know this will utterly confound your, but she’s a raging leftist asshole:

    Just wait until she stays at a Marriott establishment. Heads will explode :-)

    Who cares if a Gideon Bible has been in most American hotel rooms for at least the last 50 years (as long as I can remember, anyway)? Leave it to one “tolerant” leftist asshole to act as if she found a turd in her desk drawer and destroy another American tradition. Nobody forced you to read it, or even take it out of the drawer, you dumb bitch.

    Regarding Alan’s post, above, for several years, we’ve been waiting for CAIR to demand that Korans be placed hotel rooms alongside the Gideon Bible and to instigate a leftist hate-flash-mob against those who fail to submit. Something else to look forward to….

    Darwin, she would have been more tolerant if she had found a turd. If these people actually knew history, they would know that they are full of crap. For example, the first thing the Government Printing office (or whatever it was called then) printed after the Constitution and Bill of Rights was ratified, was an English language BIBLE. And for decades, the Capitol was the largest CHURCH in Washington. It seems to me that the founding fathers must not have understood what they wrote.
