Christians claim they have been banned from holding a bible talk in a pub named after the founder of Sunday Schools – because it might offend other religions.

According to a story by Darren Boyle for MailOnline, churchgoers had organized their annual Bible Day event at Robert Raikes House, a pub named after the man behind the Sunday school movement in the 18th Century.

But they were forced to find a new venue – claiming the landlord did not want to be associated with the word “Bible.”

According to MailOnline, Roland Parsons, city preacher and spokesman for the group, said “We think the pub has excluded us because it wanted to please everybody else and not have the word Bible associated with the establishment. We find this quite ironic because of the work Robert Raikes did for Christianity and education.”

He added, “It’s upsetting to be banned but as a Christian, I personally forgive the manager.”

The event was held at another location.
