An atheist organization has been given approval by a Colorado school district to distribute its promotional literature, including the Satanic Coloring Book, in the schools’ libraries tomorrow, April 1.
Officials for Delta County School District said that district policy required they approve the group’s request for space to distribute its materials, as policy outlaws discrimination of any particular group that requests to distribute non-curricular materials. The district can only deny materials that promote violence, advertise a produce, promote an election candidate, or are obscene or pornographic.
The Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers asked permission to distribute their literature after Bibles were handed out at the schools in December. The Bibles were supplied by Gideons International, the same group that has been putting Bibles in motel rooms for the past 100 years.
