Already the Bible has been banned in several public university hotel rooms in this Country, and the Freedom from Religion Foundation is trying to get it banned from the rest.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation is claiming that it is unconstitutional to have Bibles in university hotel rooms, and that the Bible advocates the killing of non-believers.
This is ridiculous and the assertions of the Freedom from Religion Foundation are false! Jesus taught that we are to love everybody, even our enemies and those who persecute us.
Matthew 22:39 “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.”
Matthew 5:44 “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
In addition, it is not unconstitutional to have Bibles in public university hotel rooms.
The First Amendment says “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Allowing the Gideons to put Bibles in public university hotel rooms is a right protected by the “Free Exercise Clause” of the First Amendment of the Constitution.
Furthermore it does not violate the “Establishment Clause,” because simply putting a Bible in a hotel room is not establishing a religion. No one is being forced to read it. In order for the State to establish a religion, people would have to be forced by law to follow that religion. Furthermore, there are multiple religions that use the Bible. The Bible can even be taught in public schools as a history or cultural book.

Please share this with everyone you can.
