ADF: Schools have legal right to permit Bible distribution

After the ACLU threatened Kentucky school districts with lawsuits because of Bible distributions, a legal organization says it stands ready to help the schools. Alliance Defending Freedom has sent letters to the 174 threatened school districts to inform them that the law is on their side if they cooperate with the Gideons.

Rory Gray, legal counsel at Alliance Defending Freedom, says the ACLU knows case law exists allowing distribution of religious literature in public schools.
“If the school district enacts a neutral literature distribution policy,” says Gray, “it’s extremely unlikely that the ACLU will sue them because they know the law that’s on the books.”
