From FOX 13 in Memphis:

"According to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Gideon's International is handing out bibles in Desoto Schools.

The FFRF says parents made complaints after their kids received the religious literature. They claim Gideon's International gave out the bibles to all fifth graders.

The group says it's unconstitutional, citing public schools should remain neutral towards religion and are asking the district to not allow it.

In response, the School System released this statement:
"We are investigating the matter and the Desoto County School District will make a decision and issue a statement once our attorney has completed the investigation.".......... "
