Hotel replaces The Bible with 50 Shades of Gray

I won’t be staying at this hotel.

Would not either. Bible sold more in the year 2011 - 2012 than 50 shades of grey did but you never know that if from the mainstream media

I would…that way I could replace all the books with a Bible.

Would it be dare I say…evil?


Why would a hotel do this? That’s disgusting! What if parents don’t know about it and their kids find the book and read it? I smell legal action, because it is illegal in many states to negligently allow minors access to such material.

Seems like a bad tactic considering that the Bible would permanently be on the bestseller list but the New York Times doesn’t like to advertise it’s popularity.

Me neither :nope:

Perhaps he should just have a selection at reception and ask what you want. Stuff ‘Gray’, I’d rather the latest Jo Nesbo.

But this hotel is in England. Perhaps the law is different there?

While scrolling down, I laughed out loud when I saw this. Thank you! :rotfl: I really needed that.

As far as them replacing the Bible with that “book,” its a disgrace. Probably a publicity stunt, but still a disgrace! :nope:

You’re welcome :tiphat:

The Bible is inappropriate, but porn is fine? What a world…

Well Porn is the universal language of luuuuuuv. :stuck_out_tongue:


Definitely the language of what love has become, at least in the secular majority.

This sounds like it is a “No Tell Motel”! I would not be surprised to learn that they are renting their rooms by the hour?

That is prejudice in our liberal modernist world. They should charge by the minute…some people cannot last a whole hour, let alone 1 minute. :stuck_out_tongue:


Al Bundy couldn’t, niether could Ben Stiller in that movie Along Came Polly :stuck_out_tongue:

I also won’t be staying at this hotel. They make their choices, I make mine.


:thumbsup: I agree completely. I “love” how in the article they felt the Bible was “inappropriate?” :eek: And I guess that smut is? Huh…

It doesn’t seem to be. They host weddings, conferences and the usual hotel stuff. It is located in the Lakes District of England, which I guess is a vacation area.
