Compromise near on Bible distribution in public schools
Today's St. Petersburg Times story on religious expression in public schools - a follow-up to this story about a Muslim teacher in Hillsborough who wears a hijab - overlooked a development this week down in Collier County: a potential compromise in a case involving the distribution of Bibles in public schools.
According to the Naples Daily News, the proposed settlement will allow a group called the World Changers to "leave Bibles in Collier middle and high schools on Religious Freedom Day, allowing the students to take a Bible if they wish." The group filed suit after the district prohibited members from passing out free Bibles on that day.
