Bibles can no longer be found in the rooms of Northern Illinois University's campus hotel after a secular group complained it had no place in nightstands.

The Chicago Tribune reports Freedom From Religion Foundation co-president Annie Laurie Gaylor found a Bible in a drawer when she visited the campus last month for a speech sponsored by the Secular Student Alliance. The foundation's lawyer wrote a letter to the Holmes Student Center director requesting the Bibles be removed.

Gaylor says a Bible in the bedside table is "proselytizing" in the privacy of a room a guest probably paid a lot of money for.

University spokesman Brad Hoey says the student center removed the Bibles immediately. He added university officials are "very conscious of the separation of church and state."
