A major hotel in Britain, called the Travelodge, has removed all Bibles from its buildings, for “diversity reasons… in order not to discriminate against any religion.” According to one report:
You can find a Bible in almost every hotel room around the globe. However, in August the Travelodge chain, one of Britain’s biggest accommodation chains, removed the book from all its 500 hotels for “diversity reasons… in order not to discriminate against any religion.”
The hotel chain said if customers want to read the Bible, they can pick up a copy from the reception desk.
The Church of England condemned the move as “tragic and bizarre,” saying that Bibles in hotel rooms are important to provide hope, comfort and inspiration to travelers.
Several recent cases indicate that Christianity is not practiced as freely as was previously the case. In 2006, a British Airways employee was banned from wearing a cross at work.
The European Court of Human Rights ruled in 2013 that Nadia Eweida should not have been prevented from wearing a cross at work. She was awarded £1,600 in damages.
The Guardian claims that in 2013 there were 5.4 million churchgoers in the UK, representing some 10 percent of the adult population (people aged 15 and over). That is 300,000 fewer than five years previously, when 12 percent of UK’s population attended churches.
No wonder Islam is making a base in the UK. When Christian declines, a void is formed and it is with false religions, like Islam and atheism, Hinduism and numerous other cults.
