Students attempt to ban Bible from halls

Via Christian Concern:

Students at a Welsh university have voted to ban the tradition of putting Bibles in their halls of residence in the name of ‘multiculturalism’.

Student John Morgan, who put forward the motion to the Aberystwyth Student’s Union, made the claim that the “compulsory inclusion of Bibles in university bedrooms is inappropriate in a multicultural university such as Aberystwyth.”


Of a 10,000-strong student body just five per cent of students voted, with only 300 students for and 175 against the idea of banning bibles.

University bosses will now decide whether to accept the students’ demands, a spokesperson for the university said: “The University is aware of a recent referendum vote that took place on the matter, and the referendum’s result.

“Aberystwyth University has a proud history of working with the Students’ Union on a wide variety of issues, and will work with representatives from the Students’ Union to facilitate students receiving spiritual texts which reflect their personal choice.”
