Fifty Shades of Grey

Fifty Shades a replacement for the Bible?

Wayne Bartholomew, manager of Damson Dene Hotel, Crosthwaite, has upped the eternal damnation ante considerably by replacing the Gideon Bibles in his rooms with copies of Fifty Shades of Grey as reported in the Westmorland Gazette.

“I thought it would be a special treat for our guests to find it in their bedside cabinet and that includes the men too,” Bartholomew said. “They are as desperate to get their hands on a copy as the women…. The Gideon Bible is full of references to sex and violence, although it’s written using more formal language, so James’s book is easier to read.”

Rev. Michael Woodcock, the local vicar, commented: “It is a great shame that Bibles have been removed from rooms and very inappropriate to have been replaced by an explicit erotic novel. The Bible remains a source of comfort and inspiration that many people do find helpful.”
