Violation 3 - Bible Distribution in School


The distribution of bibles to students on public school property is prohibited.

Allowing bible distributions in public schools or on public school property is an “affront not only [to] non-religious people but [to] all those whose faiths, or lack of faith, does not encompass the New Testament.” Berger. 

Unfortunately, Gideons International views schools as ripe missionary territory, specifically targeting fifth-graders. The aggressive tactics of the Gideons to visit classrooms to personally distribute bibles to small children flagrantly violates not only parental authority but public school law, as does complicity by public school principals or staff.
