    Yes, it does make a difference.
    Why don't they carry their own, instead of relying on government handouts?

    It's not a government handout.

    It's not the government, it is the

    Why would a private charitable society dedicated to providing Bibles and tracts free to the public put Bibles in Navy lodgings?


    Why indeed.... quite the mystery isn't it?

    Re: Navy reverses Bible ban

    So what I'm getting out of this thread is that:

    1. The USN used to allow donated bibles to be placed in quarters.
    2. They stopped allowing the practice for one reason or another at some point recently.
    3. They have now started allowing it again.


    Some hack reported the previous bit as a ban on bibles in the navy, which so far as I can tell was nowhere near the case.

    Turns out they didn't. "Ban" is not what happened here. The Navy merely stopped placing bibles in their lodgings.

    Why did that become a thing, anyway? Why does every hotel in America have a bible in the drawer?
