Skip to comments.Libraries put Bible on top shelf in a sop to Muslims

Librarians are being told to move the Bible to the top shelf to avoid giving offence to followers of Islam.
Muslims have complained of finding the Koran on lower shelves, saying it should be put above commonplace things.
So officials have responded with guidance, backed by ministers, that all holy books should be treated equally and go on the top shelf together.
This means that Christian works, which also have immense historical and literary value, will be kept out of the reach and sight of many readers.

Couldn’t they put the koran in the bathroom? That’s where my copy is, at least what’s left of it.
Shouldn’t it be on the floor where islamderthals can walk on it?
I agree with putting all religious books on the same shelf. However, the Bible is not a religious book.
Another nail in the coffin of the UK. I wonder when and if any of them are going to stand up and fight this to the death, if necessary.
And I hope that the Brits that read this will find that bible and put it right back where it belongs.
And,keep doing it until the idiotic - ready for revolution - joke called British justice is overthrown.
I think it wold be a good idea to put the Bible down a few shelves to eye level. They can keep the Koran up higher where nobody will notice it
And the once-mighty empire spirals down to Sharia.
I can see the day when Big Ben becomes a minaret and is drowned out by the call to prayer, and St. Paul’s becomes a mosque.
And the Brits will all put their asses in the air at tea-time...
If the Muzzies in the UK demanded everyone drive on the right, would they do it ?
And if the Bible had been left where it was would we be complaining about how the Koran was placed higher than it?
From what I have read, if the “muzzies in the U.K. demanded that everyone eat crap you would see the politicans walking around with a turd in their mouth and one in each hand.
But the way things appear to be going, our turn is right around the corner.
Religious books are written by man. The Bible is the written word of God and as such should not be on the same shelf as the Koran with its focus on death.
Now I understand. AMEN! Thank you. ;-)
“..our turn is right around the corner.”
Only because WE WANT it to be that way while no one is complaining.
“our turn is right around the corner”
This isn’t Britanistan. The day is soon coming when any bearded Muslim walking around wearing an arrogant smirk along with his kufi cap is going to get both wiped right off his ugly Islamic face.
“Silence! I kill you!!”
Are you a Muslim or an atheist?
Explain to me how the Koran is a “religious” book and the Bible is not a “religious” book.
Yes, I'm rolling my eyes at your intolerance to Christians and sympathy for Muslims.
