There's a side to the Gideons that a lot of people don't know about. In rural areas, particularly in the Bible Belt, they also go to public schools to preach to students. (I know this from first hand experience.) They don't say much, and they say it quickly, but they still try to violate state-church separation. Researcher 03:28, 30 November 2007 (EST)

I've seen it first hand too. very preachy! airdish 06:14, 30 November 2007 (EST)
Ah, I did not know that. Change it as you feel necessary. EVDebs 12:57, 30 November 2007 (EST)
I remember hearing a news story about this from the not too distant past. I just wish that I could remember where I heard it. --Edgerunner76 13:11, 30 November 2007 (EST)

You people do not understand the seperation of church and state (or the establishment clause) very well, do you? (talk) 06:00, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

The books themselves.[edit]

Anyone here collect Gideon Bibles? have a few different versions, including two smaller bibles with only the NT along with Psalms and Proverbs. One is soft cover, the other is hard. Majintahu (talk) 03:52, 16 June 2011 (UTC)

Who actually owns the Gideon Bibles?

Why don't the women set up an analogous organisation - or have they better ideas of what to do with their time? (talk) 15:48, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

A buddy of mine got hit in the eye by a gideon bible that some dude threw out of his hotel window. True story. (talk) 01:23, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
