Bible

I’m guessing the people offended by the Bible wouldn’t have the same problem with a Koran.

Via EAG News:

Students in Aberystwyth are pushing for thousands of Gideon Bibles to be removed from university accommodation.

A poll conducted by the students’ union claims that more than half of students felt that having the Bibles in university accommodation as a matter of course was “uncomfortable” or “unacceptable”.

The call to ban Bibles mirrors action by the University of Huddersfield in 2013 – it said it wanted its properties to be “ethically neutral”.

‘Safe Space’

Student John David Morgan raised the matter at a student council meeting that 50 people attended in January.

He claimed that the “inclusion of Bibles in university bedrooms is inappropriate in a multicultural university such as Aberystwyth”.

The student went on to say: “It could be offensive for some, and the university should provide a safe space for students to explore and develop their beliefs in a neutral environment”.

A spokesman for The Christian Institute said: “It is hard to imagine how a person could actually be offended by a Bible simply being in their room.
