School District Votes To Keep The Bible on Shelves After Atheist Claimed Its Content Is ‘Too Controversial’

A school district review board committee in Broward, Florida unanimously voted on Dec. 6 to keep the Bible in district libraries, addressing a challenge from an atheist activist claiming it contains content “too sensitive or controversial” for students. The activist said the decision was “completely expected” and plans to appeal.

State law allows parents to challenge books in Florida school districts. Chaz Stevens filed the challenge due to perceived inappropriate sexual and violent content in Scripture—“It is obvious the Bible’s content is too sensitive or controversial for a typical classroom setting,” he said in the complaint. He was not present at the Dec. 6 meeting.

Stevens told Fox News that he will continue fighting due to the Bible’s “casual reference to rape, bestiality, cannibalism and slavery, to name a few. … What’s the cultural or literary value of teaching about drunken orgies to those in third grade?” He said that he challenged the Bible also “to highlight the hypocrisy of conservative activists, like Moms for Liberty.”

The irony is that Moms for Liberty opposes books such as “All Boys Aren’t Blue” and “Flamer,” which contain extremely graphic and sexually explicit descriptions or pornographic drawings. A committee member and leader of the local chapter of Moms for Liberty, Corie Pinero, said in the meeting that the Bible “does not violate state law. It’s not graphic at all. It’s actually very tame compared to a lot of the books that are in Broward County schools right now.”

The vote followed a meeting with many passionate conservatives in attendance, some of whom protested outside the building beforehand holding signs saying things like, “America was Founded on the Bible” and “Don’t Tread on Our Religious Liberty.”

“[The Bible] is important for world studies,” said committee member and retired district librarian Elaine Aaron. “I believe the Bible should be on the shelf.”

Back in June, a Utah school district voted unanimously to reverse its previous decision to ban the Bible from middle and elementary school bookshelves. The original complaint called the Bible “pornographic” and “one of the most sex-ridden books around.” The reversal came after 70 community members pushed back against the decision. The appeal committee decided the Bible has “significant, serious value for minors which outweighs the violent or vulgar content it contains.”

Moms for Liberty members in Broward have called for the removal of several other books for explicit content, which will be considered at upcoming committee meetings.

The Tangled Web Of Deceit: Why Muslim Terrorists Are Incapable Of Accepting Peace

Clearly, there can be no negotiations for peace with Palestinian leaders. There can be no two-state solution. There can only be a complete and total victory by Israel over the terror groups that have unanimously vowed to annihilate the nation of Israel. There simply is no room for political optics or posturing for Israel.

The Rejection Of Biblical Truth In The Church Should Be Met With A Trumpet, Not A Whisper

If you read articles that expose false doctrine or rebuke apostasy, it is not done in order to dwell on the negative, spark controversy, or draw attention to our ministries. It is an expression of our love for Jesus and the truth of His Word.

We May Face Mockery, But Jesus Will Reward Our Watchfulness

Everything will change after the Rapture; the Lord will reward our steadfastness in watching for His appearing. His special recognition of our faithfulness will replace the mocking that now rings in our ears.
