(NIRR) - Hotel rooms may be appropriate places to
distribute Gideon Bibles, but public schools are not. The
Rensselaer (Ind.) school board unsuccessfully asked the
U.S. Supreme Court to hear its case against prohibiting
the free distribution of Bibles to fifth-graders.
The high court, without comment, left the ban intact.
"Our private prayers have been answered," Allen Berger
said of his four-year battle to have the practice stopped.
The Indiana Civil Liberties Union represented the father
of two in the successful case against the school district.
John Price, Rensselaer's attorney, maintained that the
Gideons were like other groups that addressed the
schoolchildren, and that the ruling amounted to censorship
of free speech, simply because it was religious in nature.
The Gideons had no official comment.
