Yet another dose of crazy coming out of the
state of Florida. It seems that the
Orange County school board, once a stout proponent of passing out bibles in
public schools, is now having second thoughts.
Wait, wait, wait…don’t get all geeked up just yet. The board didn’t have an epiphany, suddenly realizing that a public school is no place for religious propaganda. They still love Jesus, and want to jam Christianity down your children’s throats just as much today as they did yesterday. They’re just a little out of sorts because The Satanic Temple wants to distribute coloring books to schoolchildren.
Board chairman Bill Sublette said of the proposal, “This really has, frankly, gotten out of hand,” and “I think we've seen a group or groups take advantage of the open forum we've had.” Of course it’s out of hand, Billy. It’s always out of hand when people force their religions on others. Religion should be kept the fuck out of government. Every crazy-ass religion out there should be banned from all government or government sponsored activities.
The Orange County board is now considering a change of policy, which could happen in January or February. The group that passes out bibles says the possible policy change is an attack on Christianity. Ha!
Here’s a link to the coloring book.
