May I bring a magazine that has Torah in it in to a bathroom if I am reading non-Torah articles?

Answer:

Being that the book is not intended for the study of Torah it does not have the status of sifrei kodesh and may be brought in to the bathroom. Any Torah thought should not be read and that page should not be left open to in the bathroom.

Sources:

Sefer Ginzei Hakodesh pg. 155, footnote 14, in the name of Rav Nissim Karelitz shlit”a.
