Viewpoint: Putting the Bibles back

We agree with the Governor's decision to order Bibles returned to rooms at Georgia State Parks.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources should not have removed them in the first place.

They did it after one guest complained about a Bible being in a room.

The obvious solution would have been to remove it during that guests' stay, not the knee-jerk, overreaction of removing all Bibles from all rooms permanently.

The Georgia Attorney General ruled Bibles can be placed in the rooms because they are put there by an outside agency or organization.

And we're glad to see our state leaders taking what we believe is the right stand on this issue.
