Fifty Shades of…the Bible.

Via on Jul 26, 2012

A British hotel swaps the Bible in bedside tables for “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

They’ve replaced the book of Job with the book of “Rim Job.”
~  Stephen Colbert

But the Bible is full of “hot stuff” and Colbert gives the lucky ladies a little taste.

    Thank God for Christianity. It seems to be the first place people run back to do when they're escaping all the New Age cults, from the Church of Scientology to the Buddhist Roach Clip club. It has it faults, but nothing takes the place of authentic faith formation and properly trained spiritual guides. You certainly won't find them in American yoga – at least not these days. Thankfully, no one actually has to pay for their sermons or their masses, and ministers don't advertise on the Internet, either. The ones that do, and who are merely storefront wannabes, are usually exposed for who and what they are, because serious spiritual movements – and serious movements generally – work to purge their ranks. Spirituality shouldn't really be about what the market will bear?

    Sounds like this hotel is merely acknowledging that it was a temporary brothel all along? Plenty of those, Bible or not! Namaste
