Free Bibles for Gay Prom Controversy


A youth pastor who believes Itawamba County Agricultural High School students need help coping with this season's gay prom controversy plans to distribute free copies of the New Testament to students Thursday in Fulton, Miss.

The distribution will occur in advance of a private prom scheduled for Good Friday after school officials canceled the original prom in response to Constance McMillen's request to take her girlfriend as a date.

According to a news release from the American Family Association posted on, "This spectacle, which has drawn nationwide attention, has been turned into an opportunity for an enterprising youth pastor, Tracy McMillen (no relation) of Bethel Baptist Church in Fulton. His students are planning to offer a free copy of a youth-oriented New Testament to every student at Itawamba who wants one. The distribution will take place during non-instructional time on Thursday.

"'This situation has been chaotic and confusing for this entire community," said McMillen, 'and we believe the answers to the questions people have been asking are right here in this book. If my students can get a copy of God's Word into the hands of every student, this controversy can wind up serving an eternal purpose.'"
