ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Wisconsin-based group that advocates on behalf of atheists and agnostics says though it recently won the right to distribute its materials in Orange County public schools, it doesn't think any religious or non-religious group should be allowed to.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation says it only joined an affiliate central Florida group's lawsuit against Orange County Public Schools last year after some of its materials were censored. A federal judge dismissed it in July when the school district decided to allow all groups in.

The New York-based Satanic Temple said this week that it will be distributing literature in Orange schools this year.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation says it has repeatedly and unsuccessfully asked the district to close all distributions.
