After a complaint from a group that tracks what it sees as violations of the separation of church and state, prompted Dixie State Inn, a hotel associated with the state-owned southern Utah university, to remove all copies of the Bible and the Book of Mormon from guest rooms.

 

The Freedom From Religion Foundation alerted Dixie State’s president about the problem in June, who then turned it over to the St. George school’s lawyers to consider.

 

The group reminded Dixie that the establishment clause of U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment forbids public schools from promoting, endorsing or advancing any religion.
