Another day in the place that used to be America...

...another example of how atheists are better at not being offended by religious symbols/texts in the public square than everyone else.

When did free-thinkers begin to favor the suppression of books?

//The order was hailed by the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The FFRF had filed a complaint with the military—claiming the presence of the Bible "amounts to a government endorsement of that religious text."

"FFRF is pleased to learn that NEXCOM has taken seriously its constitutional obligation to remain neutral toward religion as a representative of our federal government," FFRF Sam Grover told me. "By removing Bibles from Navy-run lodges, the Navy has taken a step to ensure that it is not sending the impermissible message that Christians are favored over guests with other religious beliefs or over those guests with no religion."

The Bibles had been placed in the rooms, free of charge, by Gideons International.

An active-duty service member contacted me and alerted me that the Bibles were being taken out of hotel rooms, and a lodge housekeeper told American Family Association the same thing.

"They told us to put them in boxes where they would be taken to a donation center somewhere," the housekeeper told AFA.//
