STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State has pulled Gideon Bibles from rooms of two hotels it runs and will, instead, make them available upon request in public access areas.

University spokeswoman Lisa Powers tells the Centre Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1uz1hwC ) that the school made the move “in the spirit of recognizing other religions and beliefs among our guests.”

Powers says other groups who want to donate religious books can do so, and The Nittany Lion Inn and the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel will make them available along with the Bibles.

The Gideon Bibles are now located in the libraries of both hotels, and are available in other public areas.
