Atheist literature left in Orange County public high schools

Posted: Updated:
ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -

Atheist literature was placed on tables for student to look at in eleven Orange County high schools on Thursday.  This comes after a controversial free handout of bibles in January by a Christian group.

The schools where the pamphlets were placed include: Apopka, Boone, Colonial, Cyprus Creek, Edgewater, Evans, Jones, Timber Creek, University, Wekiva, and Winter Park.

The brochures and booklets included the titles, "What is Wrong with the Ten Commandments?" and "Why Women Need Freedom From Religion."

Atheist organizations, including American Atheists, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, and the Central Florida Freethought Community, asked to passively distribute the materials after the group World Changers of Florida passively distributed bibles at the same schools in January.

Hoping to avoid a lawsuit, Orange County school leaders say they decided to allow the distributions.
