Parents Upset Over A Bible!
I read this today.....very sad.
Some parents in a Texas school district are angry because Gideon International left some Bibles on a table inside a few middle and high schools... give me a break!
Members of Gideon left Bibles on cafeteria tables inside the district's middle and high school, under a school policy that allows materials to be distributed on tables... The materials usually discuss summer camps or tutoring.. The religious organization did not go evangelizing... they did not talk to the kids..... they simply left books for kids to read if they chose to pick them up... No one was making the kids pick up the Bibles. They were simple there....
The Director of Communications for the district told Fox News, "We have to handle this request in the same manner as other requests to distribute non-school literature - in a viewpoint neutral manner."
One of the parents said, "They should be giving those items wherever they worship. School is not a place to worship." My thinking is..... maybe there should be worship in school...it may bring down the crime rate....some kids might even develop a conscious.... a relationship with Christ... My question is How can that hurt?
It just amazes me - how people can get in a major uproar over a few Bibles... but not blink an eye at the Planned Parenting brochures that are sitting on a shelf in front of them.... Where are the morals???? I think things have gotten a little backwards.. don't you?
