Fla. Conservative Group Distributes Bibles at Public Schools

Volunteers from a Florida-based group have distributed Bibles to the lunchrooms of several high schools in the Sunshine State.

World Changers of Florida, a conservative organization, distributed the Bibles on Wednesday, with a focus on high schools in Orange County.

Greg Harper, vice president of Education for World Changers, wrote in a blog entry, "We have given out thousands of Bibles over the last few years and we are working to expand the program to many other school districts."

"Our members and volunteers from many local churches will place Bibles on tables during the lunch periods for students to pick up."

Katherine P. Marsh, senior manager of Media Relations for Orange County Public Schools, provided The Christian Post with a memo sent to high school principals last month regarding the distribution event.
"Prior to entry onto your campuses by any representative of World Changers, they will be cleared and registered as Volunteers and will have passed the appropriate background screenings," reads the memo.
