The month of May is the Nerofibromatosis awarness month. 

One of the major signs are cafe au lait spots (flat brown spots on the skin).

Please research this disorder!

I think it ahould be up to the motel to decide. I dont think it should be required or banned.

They can do whatever they want. Any private company can. Freedom of religion. Not freedom from religion.

I think it's kind of fun to have the "bible search" whenever we check into a hotel. It's never in the same place and it brings me 20 seconds of joy. lol! 
I don't think it's a big deal, the hotels should be able to decided if they want them or not.

I couldn't care less either way. I don't believe in god but I don't care if it's there because I don't have to read it if I don't want to.

When I went to a training course in Louisiana I spent 10 minutes searching for that darn bible. Someone has hidden it inside the "things to do" booklet.
I felt compelled to hide it in a different spot when I checked out. Best bible search ever! lol!

No, they should have copies of The Lord of the Rings (a single volume book that has sold more copies than the Bible), Harry Potter (a series of books that has sold more copies than the Bible) or the Guiness Book of World Records (a regularly updated book that has sold more copies than the Bible).

Upmarket hotels should be allowed to substitute A Tale of Two Cities, by Dickens, the Thomas The Tank Engine Railway Series, and 수학의_정석 (a book on mathematics); all of which have also outsold the Bible.

i dont think they should have too but they are their own buisness and should beable to have it if they choose too.  just like a restaursnt can say no shirt no shoes no service.

The bibles don't cost the hotel anything to provide because they are usually provided to hotels by the Gideon's society. If the hotel agrees to put them in their hotel it is completely up to them. Although I do have to say I almost expected to find a Book of Mormon with the bible when I stayed at the Marriot(Mormon owned).
