Where Have All the Gideon Bibles Gone? Going?

Here's an article from the mainstream, liberal leaning Globe and Mail. So, again, read it for what it is.

But I wanted you to note some of their "writing intended to form a subtle impression in the readers' minds". For example, "The board (involved) will either end up banning distributin of non-instructional religious materials, she (Board chair) said, or devise an inclusive policy that complies with the Education Act, human rights codes and the charter. The latter option is tricky, she admitted." Implication?

Simple: The G&M is subtly suggesting the only way to go is to ban the distribution of Bibles. And the rest of argument is written in such a way that says, "ban the practice".

I say let them give out any faith's religious materials. The Bible has no equals. Take a look.
