ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A southeast Missouri school district should be barred from allowing a Bible giveaway program to fifth-graders, the American Civil Liberties Union said in a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
The complaint filed in U.S. District Court in St. Louis seeks an injunction prohibiting South Iron Elementary School in Annapolis, Mo., from allowing Gideons International into the classroom to distribute the Bibles. ACLU of Eastern Missouri Legal Director Tony Rothert said the suit was filed on behalf of two sets of parents from the district.
"The primary objection here is the Bibles are presented during class time in a public school," Rothert said. "It was presented as part of class, which makes it appear the school is endorsing it."...
The true motive of the ACLU lawyers is not any concern for the first amendment, but to collect fees from the taxpayer. The lawyers in our legislature refuse to close this loophole that in effect, forces all Americans to support the ACLU. When will we the people rise up and demand congress stop this thievery?
The Gideons has distributed in Lebanon hundreds of thouthands of New Testaments in 3 languages(arabic,french and englisH)to schools,hotels and others and all christan religions has accepted this and asked for more
From:biblebelievers.org.au/blackpope.htm "the underlying Greek text for the King James, the Textus Receptus, was the Greek text of the Reformation. It represents 95% of the existing manuscripts that we have today. The Greek text that underlies all these other versionsâ€”thereâ€™s a Westcott and Hort Greek text, which I then discovered was really a conspiracy to adulterate the Textus Receptus in England, led by Brooke Foss Westcott and Anthony Hort, who were Maryolitors, Mary-worshippers. Later, I found out that they had invited Cardinal Newman to sit in on the revision committee. Well, Cardinal Newman was a traitor to the Anglican Church, with his Track 90, which blew-off the Anglican Church. He then left England and he was then a Cardinal by Pius IX. So, here we have Cardinal Newman, and E. B. Pusey, had been invited to sit on this revision committee, the end result being a Greek text that had been produced that was pro-Jeromeâ€™s Latin Vulgate. Jeromeâ€™s Latin Vulgate is the basis for the Jesuitâ€™s Reheims-Douay text, that was put out in 1582, that was attempting to rival William Tyndaleâ€™s English text, which later became the King James Version of 1611. So now I see this awful Jesuit hand in my Bible college, attempting to deprive me of the Word of God, the authorized version 1611"
TLC is off his trolley again. I have a Bible... my brother has a Bible, my Mother has a Bible. Please...oh please don't tell the Pope...he might produce another Bible like the Doulay Rheims, the NAB, Jerusalem Bible, Ignatius Study Bible, RSV (Catholic Edition) not to mention all those version in hundreds of languages. If you accuse the Vatican of not distributing Bibles with more errors than a dog has fleas (like the KJV)...then their're guilty as charged.
Mark 4: " The sower soweth the word.  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,  And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful."
I guess Satan works to these verses in a variety of ways to "remove" the Word of God from our people and our children. Certainly one of the simplest forms would be to remove the Bible itself, as the servants of Satan are trying to achieve here in the schools(future) and in society in general(today).
But as the Bible itself proclaims the tares will grow together with the wheat until the end.(Matt 13:38-40)
But of course it's OK for the ACLU to distribute its literature. It sounds like the ACLU is just really disgruntled about every little thing they can't understand. I think all ACLU members should leave---better yet ban them from these United States.
