The guest rooms at the Iowa State University Memorial Union Hotel are now bible free.
Last month, university officials made the decision to remove the bibles from guest rooms and move them into the hotel’s library for guests to check out and read.
The controversial decision began after the Freedom from Religion Foundation requested the school remove the bibles from the rooms. The foundation argued because Iowa State University is a state-run school, the bibles were a violation of the separation of church and state.
Officials took the bibles out of the night stands on Saturday. Anyone staying at the hotel that would like a bible to read can always check one out from the Memorial Union Hotel’s library.
