Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, we learn of the most horrible news of all: Millennial-Oriented Hotels Won’t Have Bibles.
That shocking headline appears at the blog of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG). He’s the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Two new hotel brands won’t be carrying a Bible, or any other (what they call) religious material, in the bedside drawer. According to reports, the Marriot International hotel brands Moxy and Edition are “millennial-oriented” and “religious books don’t fit the personality of the brands” which are “geared toward fun-loving millennials.”
Shocking — absolutely shocking! The first thing we do when we check into a hotel is reach for the bible and read about Noah’s ark. Now that is being denied us. But that’s not all. Hambo says:
And it’s not just Marriot International that’s pulling Bibles from its hotel rooms. According to a recent survey, “The percentage of hotels that offer religious materials in rooms had dropped from 95% of hotels in 2006 . . . [to] 79% of hotels.” Apparently the growing number of young people who call themselves irreligious or “nones” (though, really, everyone has a religion) and international travelers of all religions have sparked this change.
This is an outrage! Something must be done. Hambo tells us:
However this group is still by far a minority! People often wonder why a minority can have such an effect on the culture? Well, it’s because all people are sinners, and we are in a spiritual war. … Generations of kids in the church have been brainwashed into having a very secularized worldview and have succumbed to the enemy in this war.
It’s a spiritual war! Hambo continues:
But, really, the decision by these hotels is a sign of the times we live in. We live in a secular culture where God’s Word has been replaced with man’s ideas. The Bible and biblical ideas are ignored and mocked by the growing secular population. More and more young people, especially, are turning their backs on what they view as religion and are instead embracing the secular worldview (which is just an atheistic religion). No wonder these hotels see Bibles as irrelevant to the demographic they are marketing to.
This is so sad. Let’s read on:
Hotels have also been under pressure from secular groups to provide “Bible-free” hotel rooms. As I wrote last year, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) wrote a letter to 15 hotel chains, urging them to ditch the complementary Bibles. They are intolerant of anything — even in the private sector — that even hints at Christianity. But they have no problem imposing their secular worldview (religion) on the culture!
The religion of secularism is being forced upon us! Another excerpt:
You see, the secular worldview is a religion. It’s a system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith — the definition of a religion. And their religion, a religion of naturalism masquerading as “science,” is being openly taught in public schools and being imposed on millions of kids (using our tax dollars). Secularists fight to get Christianity kicked out of the public, and even private, sectors; yet the government is pouring billions of dollars into their religious schools — the temples of atheism, also known as public schools of America.
Yes — those infernal government-run schools are “temples of atheism”! Here’s more
It is impossible for the government not to give money to religious schools because every school is teaching some kind of religion! By and large, public schools have become churches of atheism with most of the teachers (except Christian missionaries) as the religious priests. Our tax dollars are being used in most instances in government-run schools to impose the religion of naturalism on generations of kids.
It’s horrible — horrible! There’s more to Hambo’s alarming post, but this is our last excerpt:
How tragic that so many people, especially young people, have bought into the lie of naturalism and secularism. As believers, we need to commit to being salt and light in a dying world as we boldly and unashamedly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to all.
We wish Hambo well as he seeks to inflame his followers into taking action.
