Navy Bans Bibles then Kicks Atheist Group to the Curb – Puts Bibles Back in Hotels – Freedom Outpost

Atheists from the Freedom from Religion Foundation had complained back in March to the US Navy that the Navy was unconstitutionally showing preference to Christianity. As a result, the Navy sent out a memo in June informing all lodge managers that any religious materials, including Bibles, would be removed from the rooms under “established procedures for the lost-and-found property.” However, upon a review of its policies, the Navy ordered that the Bibles, largely furnished by Gideons International, be returned to the rooms.  Sam Grover, the attorney for the atheist group, complained that the Bible had been the only religious book seen in the lodges for the past 20 years.”That demonstrates the Navys preference for Christianity over all other religions and nonreligious sects,” he told Stars and Stripes.
