School district reverses course, will allow 'Bible' on permission slip

A California school district has given the OK to a Christian church group to include the word "Bible" on permission slips distributed in schools.
 
The Pajaro Valley Unified School District originally told the Child Evangelism Fellowship of Santa Cruz County it couldn't circulate the permission slips because the papers included the word "Bible" and described "Bible stories," according to the Liberty Counsel, but the district relented after being contacted by the non-profit litigation organization that focuses on "advancing religious freedom."
 
The permission slips are for students to attend the "Good News Club," an after-school program hosted on campus by the religious group. The program emphasizes teaching lessons from the Bible.
