Dear Rabbi,

If a secular book has the word G-d (with an o) can it be taken into a bathroom? Thank you!


Dear Sarede Switzer,

It is permitted to take such a book into the bathroom, although it is best not to have it open to the page which has "G-d" printed on it. Read a different page while in the bathroom.
