Reader Diane L., inspired by yesterday’s post about Penn State’s hotels removing Gideon Bibles from the rooms, sent a photo she snapped in a hotel that takes religious diversity very seriously:
Your post about Penn State removing bibles made me remember a “spiritual menu” at a Portland, Oregon hotel – the Hotel deLuxe—and had to share. I didn’t end up touching the “Make it So” button and choosing a book, but only snapped a photo of the menu. I loved how I got a beam of light for effect! : )
Of course it’s from Portland—the hippest of hipster towns. And “Make it so,” is, of course, the phrase used by Captain Picard on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
I have four comments:
1. BOOKS ON SCIENTOLOGY???
2. Judging by where the light beam fell, the True Religion must be Hinduism.
3. Why is the Torah a separate document, since it’s simply the first five books of the Old Testament, from Genesis through Deuteronomy? Is the deLuxe’s version in Hebrew, or do the Jews simply not want to defile themselves by holding the New Testament?
4. Where is The God Delusion?
