From the Washington Post:
The U.S. Navy will no longer allow Bibles and other religious materials in the guest rooms of Navy lodges, a decision that has infuriated some conservative groups, which recently learned about the new policy.
The Navy’s decision came after the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter questioning the constitutionality of religious literature in the Navy lodges’ 3,000 guest rooms.
The June 19 directive from the Navy Exchange Service Command, which runs the Navy’s 39 guest lodges in the U.S. and abroad, allows religious materials to be made available to guests. But it forbids religious items to be placed in guest rooms, aligning the command, known as NEXCOM, with U.S. Navy policy, said NEXCOM spokeswoman Kathleen Martin.
I have stayed in hotels/motels for many decades. If I choose to look for a Gideon’s Bible, I will look in the desk drawer. If I choose to not look for one, then I don’t go and look. I have never in my life felt compelled to look or to not look. I have never felt put upon by the existence of a Gideon’s Bible or the lack of a Gideon’s Bible.
For the life of me, I don’t understand what FFRF’s issue is.
