    I mean the legal case, although the title is equally apt for the official who green-lighted this:

    The mother of a fifth-grader at E.E. Miller Elementary School has filed a complaint with the American Civil Liberties Union after a stack of Bibles were made available to students in her son’s classroom.

    Geri Weaver said she does not know whether a school employee or outside group placed the red New Testament Bibles on the table. The books have the imprint of the Gideons, a religious group best known for placing Bibles in hotel rooms.

    The teacher did not encourage students to take the Bibles or comment on them, except to say that they were available for anyone who wanted one, Weaver said.

    Sadly, the family will now likely face harassment from the “good Christians” in our community.

    I still say that the best way to fight this stealth “missionarying” is to insist on bringing other religions in on it. Someone needs to bring a stack of copies of the Qu’uran (in English translation) one day, another day make it copies of “Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practicioner”, and next week copies of “Kindness: A Treasury of Buddhist Wisdom for Children and Parents”, followed by “The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”.
