It’s called National Religious Freedom Day, but this year the superintendent for schools in Collier County, Fla., wouldn’t let a familiar face, Jerry Rutherford, hand out Bibles at the local high school:
“This rejection is a slap in the face,” Rutherford said. “The decision to deny access to community groups that are religious in nature is censorship and bias.”
There’s no indication that any other religious texts were welcomed onto campus. Maybe it’s supposed to be called Freedom From Religion Day.
