Good news: Gideons get left behind (March 19, 2015)

After FFRF received a report that Gideons International distributed bibles to students at Holly Hill Elementary School, Enterprise, Ala., Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel wrote a March 18 complaint letter.

“It is unconstitutional for public school districts to permit the Gideon Society to distribute bibles as part of the public school day. Courts have uniformly held that the distribution of bibles to students at public schools during instructional time is prohibited,” said Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel in a March 18 letter to the district.
Enterprise City Schools Superintendent Camille Wright responded the next day, saying she had notified all principals not to allow Gideons to distribute bibles on school grounds.
