You can bet the Gideons are planning a stern visit to the Damson Dene Hotel, where the ultimate blasphemy has occurred.
After hearing guests talk non-stop about the erotic novels, hotel manager Wayne Bartholomew decided to save them the embarrassment of making a trip to the bookstore and swapped out the Bibles with 50 Shades of Grey.
“I thought it would be a special treat for our guests to find it in their bedside cabinet and that includes the men too,” he said. “They are as desperate to get their hands on a copy as the women.”
He added: “The Gideon Bible is full of references to sex and violence, although it’s written using more formal language, so James’s book is easier to read.
Guests can still request a Bible at the front desk…if they’re not too embarrassed to ask, that is.
Making travel a treat.
