ACLU sues La. school district over Bibles
NEW ORLEANS - The American Civil Liberties Union on Thursday filed its fifth religion-related lawsuit in 13 years against an eastern Louisiana school district, this time alleging that a principal improperly allowed people to distribute Bibles to students.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court on behalf of the parents of a fifth-grader at Loranger Middle School in Tangipahoa Parish, who were upset that Gideon Bibles were being given to students on school property during class hours.

"School officials in Tangipahoa Parish habitually show disdain for the Constitution, while disrespecting the right of parents, who happen to be Catholic in this case, to choose the religious tradition in which to raise their children," said Joe Cook, the ACLU executive director for Louisiana. ...

Depends more on who's distributing the Bibles, Lance, since the Bibles the Gideons distribute(KJV or NKJV usually) are as sufficient as a Catholic version in defending the Catholic Church's faith and morals. But of course, if the Gideons distribute them, people are more likely to attend a church favored by the Gideons and that most likely wouldn't be a Catholic church. That may explain the parents' concerns.

I wonder what sort of "Catholics" these parents are. No normal, practising Catholics would object to the distribution of Gideon Bibles to their children.

"Undermining Scripture"

I would remind people of the Golden Rule in this case, though.

Matthew 7:12
12. Therefore all things whatever ye desire that men should do to you, thus do *ye* also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
