    Precedent-making, I hope.

    Re: Navy reverses Bible ban

    I was wondering why the Navy would have banned bibles.


    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?

    Leave it to FOX News to take a story out of context, and tell a lie for political purposes. But that's FOX News, where you have to take their stories with a shaker of salt.

    The Navy never banned Bibles. They only stopped putting them in the quarters of Navy personnel. Personnel were still allowed to have Bibles. So all that's happened is that the Navy is putting Bibles in their quarters again.

    Sheesh!!

    I wonder how NP would react to the Navy placing a Koran in all of its quarters.

    Because the Giddeons donate those Bibles.

    Around 70-80% of our military personnel profess Christianity.

    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.

    He gives a **** either way? They can put dictionaries in all quarters, too. Doesn't mean anyone is obligated to read the ****.
