Atheist Group Gets Gideons Booted from Georgia School District
An atheist group is claiming victory after a Georgia school district pledged not to allow outside groups like the Gideons to distribute religious materials in the classroom.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation, which represents atheists, agnostics and skeptics, sent a letter to Effingham County Schools in Springfield, Ga., last December alleging that two schools – Ebenezer Elementary and Marlow Elementary – had allowed the Gideons to “enter classrooms, preach to students about the significance of the bible, and distribute Bibles to students.” The allegations were made on behalf of “multiple” parents of students, according to the letter.

“It is our understanding that every child was given a bible, but they were told that they could return it to the teacher if they don’t want it,” the letter, dated Dec. 13, said. “... Courts have uniformly held that the distribution of Bibles to students at ...

Jim knows that the Muslims, atheists, perverts, and other ungodly groups already have access to the public schools, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. After all, he serves the same devil they do.

Dear Mr Lincoln, I for one am very glad that when I was a boy my school permitted distribution of Bibles by the Gideons. In my day they did use the KJV, which actually is a very good version, using the same texts that the Reformers and Puritans used. Never fear, nowadays, I believe that they use modern translations like the NIV, unfortunately based on the liberal texts of Westcott / Hort / Nestle /Aland.

As I understand your strange atheistic secularist system in the USA, (which, by the way, was only like that from the 1960’s, when two regrettable activist Supreme Court judgements were handed down, because of the activism of a militant atheistic woman, Madelyn Murray O’Hare), banning any kind of prayer and then finally Bible reading in public schools.

However, the other religions do get into the schools, and I am not merely talking about after school clubs, but actually as part of the curriculum. The atheistic societies and ACLU are usually conspicuously absent when this happens, only appearing if there is remotely Christian. Yoga, martial arts, lessons about Islam, meditation and mindfulness, along with subtle forms of Earth worship in environmentalism, even witchcraft and Satanism, are often a key component of curricula and after school activities in your public schools

Satan's mission is to remove the Word of God from everywhere.

Even some churches are helping him - such as Anglican, Episcopalian, PCUSA, and others.

Removing the Word of God from schools of course is removing the Word of God from future generations.

Reprobation is spreading quickly in the nations.

Prov 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."

2Peter 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."

Mr. Jim the others already do it and are allowed to. I use to work in the public education system and these other groups and views were allowed to present in 7th and 8th grade class but never did I see my pastor or any like invited to present...the reason they want the Bible out is because it debunks and destroys every worldview they teach and allow and promote... period.

Well then, we best see to it they keep truth out of the schools. Remember if we let truth into the schools, so can lies be let in.⚠️

The Alliance Defending Freedom, as of 2013, maintains that there are "constitutionally permissible ways in which Gideons Bibles may be distributed," and attorneys Rory Gray and Jeremy Tedesco write that the Alliance Defending Freedom sent letters to 174 school districts in Kentucky stating: "Federal caselaw overwhelmingly supports the decision to grant religious and non-religious community groups an equal opportunity to provide literature to willing students." In early 2014, the "Gideons International again distributed Bibles at a public elementary school in Kentucky."

The school board made a very excellent decision. It should also be noted that The Gideons can use very excellent versions of the Bible such as the ESV and very poor ones like the KJV. Of course opinions can vary on versions

I was truly blessed in the late 1950’s, the 1960’s and the early 1970’s, to have a broadly Christian and even at times Bible based education, in both my main primary school, and my secondary selective grammar school, (both Church of England Anglican foundations), but in the state or public school system with funding by the LEA, or local council, (as was usual in Britain).

The RE in my primary school was actually based only on the Bible, even if the teachers were probably not evangelical, and so were the morning assemblies!!

The secondary school actually possessed a chapel, had a chapel choir, but again in my earlier years there was Bible based RE, though later on interfaith elements did begin to seep in. The second of the three chaplains in my school was an evangelical, and started a Christian Union. At age 11 in my 1st year there, (6th grade to you in the US), we had a Gideons presentation, and I also believe there was also a Bible distribution in another occasion of Bristol City Council (the funding LEA), in my primary school!!

I have a Gideons New Testament that was one of the many thousands distributed to school children in the 1940s. If you could read its introduction, you’d see that we are not living in the same country, or even on the same planet, that we once knew. Come, Lord Jesus.
