DELTA, Co. — A public school district in Colorado has agreed to allow professing atheist and satanic groups to place their materials in area middle and high schools after the organizations took issue with a recent Bible distribution by Gideon International.

In December, Gideons made Bibles available for students at public schools in Delta County. That prompted a student to complain, and led to secular groups such as the Freedom from Religion Foundation, Western Colorado Atheists and Freethinkers and the Satanic Temple to apply for similar distribution.

Kurt Clay, the assistant superintendent of the Delta County School District, told reporters this past week that the district can’t turn down the groups because of way the distribution policy is written.
