AG Vows To Protect Bible Distribution At Oklahoma Schools
OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma – Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt says religious freedoms are under attack in Oklahoma and he’s telling public school districts across the state he’s ready to protect them for allowing citizens to distribute Bibles in schools.
In a letter to state superintendents on Tuesday, Pruitt says school districts can allow private citizens to distribute religious literature, including Bibles, to students.
He says the districts must enact a “neutral policy” that allows equal access for all Oklahomans to freely exercise their religion. He also offers to help school districts craft an appropriate policy “to ensure the maximum level of freedom for the citizens of this state.”
Pruitt says some school districts have been intimidated by out-of-state groups that have threatened to sue over the distribution of Bibles on campus.
