Gideons booted from Missouri school district (Sept. 28, 2011)

FFRF Staff Attorney Patrick Elliott wrote a Sept. 22, 2011 letter of complaint to the Superintendent of the Norwood School District in Norwood, Mo., protesting bible distribution by members of Gideons International at a table directly outside the school entrance during school hours. In a Sept. 28 response, Superintendent John Eaton replied, “I will write the local Gideons a letter making sure they understand that they cannot be on school property nor can they try to distribute religious literature during school hours.”
