If you allow the distribution of Bibles in schools, it was only a matter of time before we showed to take advantage of that silly lapse in the law.
Oh yes, because the Bible is allowed to be distributed in 11 Orange County high schools in Florida, Atheists have started campaigning to distribute their literature there.
I think the most telling quote from the article is
But Daniel Koster, a 17-year-old senior at Wekiva High School, said there were adults and a student from theFellowship of Christian Athletes sitting at a table at his school, and he saw them talk to students. There were two tables, Koster said, one directly outside the cafeteria and one inside, near the serving line. Rodriguez said he would investigate.
“I should be able to go to class without being pressured by Christian groups to join them,” said Koster, who is president of the Wekiva Atheist and Secular Alliance. He said it was impossible to avoid the table. “It is being pushed on you because you have to go to school and you have to encounter it — unless you want to be hungry all day.”
Oh yes, they cannot approach you but they can make it hard for you to not approach them. A modern day rice conversion tactic.
And I agree with the article, if it were a Muslim group distributing the Koran there would be a ludicrous backlash.
It’s a terrible shame, the Bible doesn’t belong in the school, because the Bible was allowed the only way to keep things fair is to allow pretty much anyone who wants to flog religion there.
If the Bible is allowed in Schools, is Education allowed in Church?
