Can't help thinking most of the comments so far are stating the bleedin' obvious. Of course it is good that they stood up for themselves, but is there not a possible downside? How many times in history has this kind of thing been manipulated as seditious and anti-establishment by the fanatics with the ear of many, and turned around to mobilise even more extreme oppression. Some caution is needed. Slowly-slowly-catchy-mohammadi. Glad to see some sanity / reality in C12.

Can we find a way to have this kind of inteligent literature available strategically placed in hotel rooms worldwide, alongside the hate filled Gideon clone ghost stories? I suspect this is still widespead in some regions, including the US, RSA etc (but I actually don't know ?).

I thought this had mostly - thankfully - ceased in the UK until I recently found said poisonous fiction in the top drawer at a UK emergent French Travel Lodge clone.

There must be some inteligent free thinkers in the Hotel trade? The ideal would be to have a copy of The God Delusion available everywhere to balance things, but ......

Also, same question. How can we counter this type of BS ...

Lighten up debaser71 (comment 3), if we can't be 'jovial' about serious issues then we may as well give up now. Would you prefer wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of cloth?

Lashes, prison and loss of livelihood, hmm. I would say neurotic or paranoid, but anal seems so much more appropriate!

Just joined. I would sorely like to see any of the senior, elequent representatives of the FES (aka the Roman Catholic Church) comment also on the fate of Hypatia of Alexandra, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypatia. Among her crimes was that she encouraged logic and mathematical study in place of empirical enquiry, became the first (and only?) respected leading mathamatician and philosopher in antiquity, invented the hygrometer and said things like "All formal dogmatic religions are fallacious and must never be accepted by self-respecting persons as final", "Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all", and "To teach superstitions as truth is a most terrible thing". These quotes seem to me to sit well with the RDFRS mission statement. For this the pagan witch was eventually sliced to pieces with broken oyster shells, before having her body parts paraded around the city. Oh yes, and I think the chief author of this moral and intelectual attrocity went on to be lauded as 'Saint Cecil' at some point! Perhaps the FES cannot distance themselves from all such 'unfortunate' historical incidents, but but this seems to sum a lot of things up!
