Question
Thank you for your response to my question. A quick follow up question - You mentioned that you don’t have to run out of the bathroom - but can you leave the material in the bathroom?
Answer
You can leave the material in the bathroom until you come out, unless it refers to G-d's name in a Torah or Jewish context. You should, however, not be taking material into the bathroom if it is likely to have content of this sort.
