ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — A Satanist group is pushing to distribute coloring books for children at a Central Florida school.

The push has caused Orange County school officials to consider a ban on the distribution of all religious materials at schools.

Religious groups are allowed to place religious materials at schools, and students can pick them up if they want.

So far, an evangelical group has distributed Bibles and an atheist group has distributed literature.

School officials said they’re reconsidering the policy after a group known as the Satanic Temple tried to get their coloring book distributed at schools.

Any school board vote on the matter won’t take place until early next year.
