ACLU Protests Distribution Of Bibles At SD School

May 12, 2014, 3:14 PM

MILLER, SD -

The South Dakota chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is protesting the distribution of Bibles to fifth-graders in the Miller School District.

The organization on Monday announced it sent a letter the district's board of education president asking to reconsider its decision to approve the Bible distribution.

David Fremark is the school board's president. Fremark says he has not seen the letter.

The board last week voted to allow Gideons International to distribute pocket-size New Testaments to fifth-graders.

The ACLU says courts across the country have prohibited Bible distributions in public schools under a variety of circumstances. The group says schools that allow the distributions venture onto shaky constitutional grounds and potentially open themselves up to legal challenges.

Miller is located in central South Dakota.
