Florida Atheist Petitions Schools to ‘Immediately Remove the Bible,’ Trolling Gov. DeSantis’ Recently Signed Bill

The “Stunt Activist,” as Stevens calls himself, is asking people to join him “in demanding every single Florida school board banish the Bible from their school district” by contributing money. He shared that he will soon be releasing an app so supporters can easily create a “customized PDF Bible-banning letter” to send to their local school superintendent.

One of the Stevens’ petitioned letters was shared with Patch Miami. In the letter, Stevens writes, “Additionally, I also seek the banishment of any book that references the Bible. “While you’re at it, please consider removing those insipid ‘In God We Trust’ signs thumbtacked to the wall.”

Stevens’ letter listed areas of concern for his Bible removal request. He explains that the Bible may not be age appropriate, because it describes the killing of children, bestiality, rape, wokeness, slavery, and social-emotional learning.

“Is this the message we want to teach our children? If you rape a woman, the father has to give you 50 silver pieces,” Steven wrote. “As the Bible casually references (i.e. Matthew 15:19) such topics as murder, adultery, sexual immorality, and fornication…do we really want to teach our youth about drunken orgies?”

Explaining his purpose to the Miami New Times, Stevens said, “If they’re gonna ban books, then the whole library should be in play. My hope—and it’s a long shot—is that they will apply their own standards to themselves and ban the Bible.”

Steven said he uses lawmakers own hypocrisy when it pertains to the laws and policies he opposes, remarking, “My job is merely to turn hypocrisy on itself and let the bureaucrats eat each other for lunch.”

Speaking to those who opposed the Bill, Gov. DeSantis said, “You have some groups that want to take away classic books like ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ but they want things like ‘Gender Queer: A Memoir,’ which is a cartoon style book with graphic images of children performing sexual acts. That is wrong. That has no place in the schools. They want eliminate ‘Of Mice and Men,’ but ‘Lawn Boy,’ a book containing explicit passages of pedophilia is somehow accepted as being okay.”

“Parents understand when they see this. They understand when they need to blow the whistle on this, and I just think we need to make sure they’re equipped to be able to do what needs to be done to basically defend the education of their kids,” DeSantis said.
