Boone County Schools students in Kentucky will see the distribution of both Gideon International Bibles and The Young Atheists Survival Guide book, after the Christian organization and a local atheist group were given permission to hand out literature.
Gideons International and the Tri-State Freethinkers group will reportedly offer Bibles and by Hemant Mehta's book on Tuesday, Fox 19 reported.
In a short email message to The Christian Post on Tuesday, Gideons Director of Communications Jeff Pack said: "From our standpoint, what work we do is through the school board and we follow whatever direction they give us. That¹s our standard practice."
Creation Museum President and CEO Ken Ham, whose organization is based in Kentucky, has expressed opposition to the distribution of atheist material.
