"If a Quran, a Bhagavad Gita, the Tipitaka, or a book promoting the various religions of secular humanism were in the drawer, I would do one of two things: I would pick it up and read it out of intellectual curiosity, or I would leave it in the drawer and turn on the TV. Simple. Problem solved."
I don't agree with his last point, though. I think a university has every right to deny tenure to a science professor who injects religion into that science to its detriment in a major publication. But I've never had any problem with Gideon Bibles in hotel rooms.
