Atheists: Bible Says Kill Gays & Non-virgin Women

The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has claimed victory in its battle to force Penn State to remove the Gideon Bibles from Nittany Lion Inn and the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.
“The Bible calls for killing nonbelievers, apostates, gays, ‘stubborn sons,’ and women who are not virgins on their wedding nights. . . .  What is obnoxious in a private hotel, however, becomes inappropriate and unconstitutional in state-run lodgings.”
-- Annie Laurie Gaylor, FFRF attorney and co-president

 Penn State has removed Gideon Bibles from hotel rooms after a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) accused the Bibles of advocating the killings of nonbelievers.

“The decision to remove Bibles from individual guest rooms was made following questions from the Freedom From Religion Foundation,” Lisa Powers, director of strategic communications at Penn State told Campus Reform in an email. “It raised our awareness and we took the opportunity to review our hotel practices. We wish to be respectful of all religions, and also of those who have differing beliefs, yet we still want to make the publication available to those who desire to read it while staying with us.”

Powers said that the Bibles had been in the Nittany Lion Inn rooms for “decades” and had been in place in the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel for “probably a dozen years.”

From "Penn State Denies Removing Bibles From Hotels Following Atheist Complaint" by Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter 9/5/14

Contradicting a press release by the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a representative of Penn State told The Christian Post that the Bibles have not been taken out of their hotels.

"The Bibles have not been removed from our hotels. The decision to make Bibles and other publications available in our libraries and other public access areas was made in mid-summer," said Powers. "There are still Gideon Bibles at our facilities and they have been there for decades. We do not have a specific date for when they originated."

While the Bibles are not in "individual guest rooms," they remain "available in our public access areas" for "those who wish to use them," explained Powers.
