Sometimes I wonder. . . .
A hotel in the Lake District, England has replaced the Bible that usually appears in all hotel room with the very popular soft porn novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. Why, because it is more interesting and a best seller! I'm sure some visitors will get quite a surprise when they open their bedside drawer to find this erotic book to read. Unfortunately a child could come across this book quite unexpected as it is simply in the drawer next to the bed and I know a number of parents who really wouldn't want their young ones to flick through the book.
As would be expected, it caused quite an outrage, including from the local parish priest. The owner of the hotel felt the Bible was no longer relevant in our secular society. But if anyone wants a copy of the Bible, they will need to ask for it at reception.
I suppose it isn't much different to the range of movies that are on offer in many hotels, even including X-rated films. Its just the way it all appears to be heading.
But He answered and said,
"It is written, 'Man shall not live
by bread along, but by every word that
proceeds from the mouth of God."
