Ga. agency orders removal of Bibles at state parks

ATLANTA — Georgia parks officials say they’ve ordered that Bibles be removed from guest rooms at state lodges and cabins across the state.

WAGA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/YU6RxC) that the order came after a resident expressed concerns.

A Georgia Department of Natural Resources spokeswoman said that after the resident expressed concerns, management directed the staff to remove the Bibles from cabins and lodge rooms until managers can fully investigate the issue and make an informed decision.

The station reports that the DNR has not set a timetable for a final decision on allowing Bibles in state park guest rooms.
