A Wisconsin-based anti-religion group is pitching a hissy fit after a group of Georgia Baptists donated free backpacks to children.
A child at Graysville Elementary School in Ringgold was sent home with a purple King James Bible and a note inviting them to join the Catoosa Baptist Association family in May, according to a “concerned viewer” of News Channel 9.
Chris Line, an attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, claimed the “Hope New Testament” given to the children violates the law.
“When they include a Bible in that, what they’re doing is promoting endorsing religion, and the school through allowing that or through working with that church is also promoting and endorsing religion,” Line said.
He went so far as to compare the distribution of Bibles to loaded firearms.
“I mean, if they if there were weapons in the backpacks, and the school wasn’t aware, the school would still be liable for helping distribute those,” said Line.
National radio host and best-selling author Todd Starnes slammed FFRF for targeting the Baptists.
“They’re like predators – lurking in the shadows — a bunch of godless, heathen atheists out there bullying Baptists,” he said on his program.
The school’s principal, Kerri Sholl, said the school is doing all they can to make sure it never happens again, adding to the local news her goal is to educate children and keep them safe.
