ACLU warns Kentucky schools about Bible giveaways

(Continued)

FRANKFORT, Ky. —

Several schools districts, including the Raceland-Worthington District, have already made policy changes.

"We respect parents' wishes on the distribution of that type of material. Whether we agree with it or not, we have to follow the law," Coldiron said. "We have to take our own personal beliefs out of it."

The ACLU says the practice continues in other districts, and it warns that any future complaints could lead to a lawsuit.

Details for this story were reported by The Daily Independent in Ashland, Ky.
