Taylor, TX

AU learned that members of the Gideons were permitted to set up a table to distribute New Testament Bibles to elementary-school students during the school day. The school even altered students’ routes to and from classes in order to allow students to pick up the Bibles. In a letter to the school, AU explained that federal courts have routinely held such distributions to be unconstitutional, especially when targeted at elementary-school students. The District decided the following week that the Gideons would no longer be allowed to distribute Bibles at the school.
