    Nothing about this is taxpayer funded, unless you're counting whatever table or drawer the book in question is placed on/in.

    I believe that is exactly what he is saying along with the building itself.

    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?

    Are you actually suggesting Navy Pride would post something without a factual basis?

    I don't have the figures in front of me, but I'd guess less than 1% profess Islam.


    Yes, it does make a difference.
    Bull****. It's MY tax dollars.

    Because you could easily violate the 1A religion rights of the servicemen that way.

    NONE of your tax dollars funded the bibles. They were placed there free by the Gideons.

    I would probably pick up the bibles the Gideons place in the hotel room if it had a Dollar Bill hidden within its covers.
