Hotel Boss Faces 50 Shades of Religious Fury After Replacing the Bible With Popular Porn Novel

By Gary Cutlack on at

Popular filth title Fifty Shades of Grey has found itself a fan in hotel owner Wayne Bartholomew, who has risked angering God by replacing the Bible in his hotel rooms with copies of the awful porn book.

Bartholomew runs the Damson Dene Hotel in Cumbria, which has 40 rooms of magnolia decor, all of which now boast a copy of the sexy book that's setting the hearts, minds and elasticated trousers of the over-50s on fire right now.

Local vicar The Rev Michael Woodcock has brought his own small strike of virtual lightning down on the head of Mr Bartholomew, claiming it's little more than a "gimmick" and any claims that the Bible has just as much sex and smut in it are made by those who would take its holy words out of context.

The traditional Bible option is still available in the hotel, but guests will have to "opt in" at reception if they'd like to receive one and read stuff about Jesus and fish rather than elderly S&M before bed. [Telegraph]
