I've not seen them waning, but I have noticed that the Qu'ran and the Bible now drifting to the drawers in the cupboards as opposed to the drawers in the bedside cabinet at the hotels I stay at. More that they are still being supplied but not so "In your face" about it anymore

all they do is supply bibles free of charge


There would be a cost involved in getting them printed. A much better use of the money and resources would surely be to use it for actual charitable purposes, and use the human power of getting them all delivered for better purposes like helping out in nursing homes, helping clean up streets etc.

Do you want to dictate how people of faith want to spend their time and money?

Well it does rather depend upon what your fundamental beliefs are and what you think the greatest good you can do is.
For the Christian, charity is reaching out in love to someone else and the greatest act of charity/love there is is seen in Jesus' death on the cross. It follows that the greatest act of love a Christian understands that they can do is tell other people of this since the consequences are so great.


Of course, if you don't think that history revolves around the life, death and resurrection of Jesus then you'll make other choices. Just depends upon what you are convinced of.

It is volunteers that are donating their own time to supply and maintain the bibles. So the fair response to that is who are you to question how someone else spends their spare time or money. If someones favourite charitable work is saving gay whales then good for them.

If you are so concerned about dirty streets, then get on your bike, grab your broom and start cleaning rather than expecting someone else to do it.
