Activist, atheist, and Mount Jab Church of Mars’ founder Chaz Stevens sent letters to 63 school districts in his home state of Florida requesting they remove the Bible from classrooms, libraries, and all other instructional materials, trolling Gov. Ron DeSantis for his recent signing of HB 1467.
The bill that passed the Florida House with a 79-41 vote, and which goes into effect July 1, 2022, was written after parents complained about sexually explicit books being taught in public schools. The bill increases the involvement of parents regarding the selection of books and materials used in school classrooms.
“Meetings of committees convened for the purpose of ranking, eliminating, or selecting instructional materials for recommendation to the district school board must be noticed and open to the public in accordance with s. 286.011. Any committees convened for such purposes must include parents of district students,” the bill reads.
