The copies of the Holy Bible have been removed from the public hospital bedside tables across Australia, according to The Sunday Mail newspaper report.
The move is part of the infection control program in the health system. But those Australians, who see the Bible as a source of comfort, are not amused.
The new policy is based on the basic premise that while the Bible can effectively spread The Word, it can also spread germs or offend non-Christians.
Nevertheless, The Good Book will still be available to patients upon request.
