Judge Halts Distribution of Gideon Bibles

| 1 Comment

A federal judge has ruled that a rural Missouri school district's longstanding practice of allowing Gideon Bibles to be distributed to students is unconstitutional, the Associated Press reports.

The judge's opinion says that both the South Iron R-1 school district's earlier policy allowing classroom Bible distribution and an amended policy allowing the distribution before and after school and during lunch breaks violates the First Amendment's prohibition against government establishment of religion.
