(Orlando Sentinel) Bibles are being distributed again today in Orange County Public Schools despite a lawsuit by an atheist group to halt or alter the practice.

The distribution, which has been allowed by Orange schools twice before, consists of both softcover and hardcover New International Version (NIV) Bibles left on designated tables by volunteers. The tables are placed in accessible locations where students can pick the Bibles up.

Tables have been set up at all 19 traditional high schools, said John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council. His group helped arrange this year’s distribution.
