After a push for distribution of satanic materials to be distributed throughout schools in Florida, the school board has decided to to ban all religious materials from schools, this includes bibles. Wow! I used to use this as my own territory when in high school, I had a few studies while in school...our young people really have it tough now!

Apparently there's been an argument from the Satanic worshippers that if 'religious studies' are allowed in schools then their material should be allowed too, as it's a ' religion ' and a recognised one at that. So sounds like to get rid of the Satanic influence they are thinking that banning everything religious will get rid of  it.

The article says nothing about a student bringing a bible its when a group wants to distribute them to everyone in the school they refuse it. Read the article. Its does not say students are banned from bringing bibles or other materials into the school.

The ban is not yet in effect, it is a proposal that will be voted on tonight, and may easily fail.

 

And according to a regional news channel, if passed, the measure will ban "the passive distribution of all religious and political materials to students".

 

So Witnesses would be banned from setting up literature carts in public schools (a non-issue since we never set up in public schools anyway), but Witness students would be perfectly free to bring any Bibles and literature they want, as long as they refrain from open distribution.

Just of Fox News the head of the school board says they have really come to the conclusion that religion does not belong in the schools, it should be left at home...sounds like ALL religious content will be rid.

All religious and political content would be banned from distribution, that is the plan.

 

The courts have repeatedly ruled that schools cannot ban students from possessing religious literature, and that is not at all the subject of this debate, no matter how much Fox News and similarly vitriolic media outlets would like it to be.

 

For the short time that the school allowed the Satanic literature, the media narrative was "students forced to read Satanic propaganda". That report was no more true than the current narrative of "students banned from reading the Bible", but these media outlets are willing to overlook facts when there's potential to invoke outrage against an opposing politician.

 

 

The background of this whole debate is that christian groups pushed the school to allow distribution of Bibles in the school. In turn, a Satanic Temple began placing their own literature alongside the 'free Bible' display. Some "christian" parents were outraged (Fox News has recently been blaming "atheists"), so the school banned that literature, but not the Bibles. The Satanic temple went to court, and the court ruled that the school cannot show favoritism by distributing materials from one religion while banning others, they must allow all or none.

The head of the school board stated these comments, he was on Fox News, it wasn't Fox News stating it. He was stating it in the manner that they had been discussing all that it encompasses and stated that "religion belongs at home." That's it. A lot of the young ones have phones with their bibles on them, and ofcourse the schools all have Internet anyway so they can get it one way or the other.

The text of the amendment, which will be voted on in an hour or two, says absolutely nothing about students having Bibles or other religious material in the school, nor do they have any legal right to imply otherwise.

Yes, that is what I am saying, they are even including political and "other" materials that they have not expounded on yet. They are trying to cut out everything that he called a "distraction" to the education process. He said" religion should be left at home to learn and in the churches". I don't even know what else he was talking about, voting information and flyers maybe. I guess we will see later tonight though.
