Religion in Public Schools?

APRIL 6, 2006 -- Just two days after a plan passed to bring Bibles to Brunswick County high schools, the topic of religion in schools is coming up in New Hanover County.

A discussion Thursday at Cape Fear Community College touched on the balance between church and state and whether religion should be taught in schools. The group stressed that although it's often a national debate, it's very much a local issue.

As for the controversy in Brunswick County, the ACLU and the Freedom from Religion Foundation continue to protest the school board's decision to allow the Gideons to pass out Bibles.
