CHECOTAH, Oklahoma -

Several Oklahoma school districts are accused of breaking the law.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation says Oklahoma representative George Faught's son, James, and other members of Gideon's International were passing out Bibles to fifth graders in Checotah, Eufaula and Stidham.

It sent letters to more than two dozen districts saying distributing bibles at school violates the Constitution.
