Stupid is as stupid does (or in this case, votes).

They want to outlaw Shariah because they hate competition.

Amazing. More here.

[Link: floridaindependent.com...]

A bill that would allow K-12 students to pray during all school events is currently being opposed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and the Liberty Counsel. Both groups warn that such legislation would cost the state money in litigation.

The Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal group, and the ACLU have historically been on different sides of issues — including gay parent adoption, gay marriage and a case involving student-initiated prayers in Duval County schools. However, both groups are now denouncing a bill that has passed in the state Senate and is moving through the Florida House.

Yesterday, the bill passed a House education committee where opponents warned that Senate Bill 98, which is sponsored by state Sen. Gary Siplin, D- Orlando, could lead to “messages of hate.”

I'm encouraged by the bolded bit there.

Also here is what they mean by "messages of hate."

[Link: floridaindependent.com...]

However, Democratic state Reps. Marty Kiar, Luis Garcia, Dwight Bullard and Gwyndolen Clarke-Reed proposed that the measure, if adopted, would give students the ability to deliver hateful messages at school events.

Kiar said that he worried about students who might have a “warped” understanding of what an “inspirational message” is. He argued that students could conceivably deny the Holocaust, give “anti-civil rights” speeches and endorse drug use at a school event.

I'd like to recommend this to the front page! People need to be made aware.

Family Policy Council echoes objections to school prayer bill

The Florida Family Policy Council, one of the most influential anti-gay rights and anti-abortion groups in the state, is joining the chorus of opposition to a school prayer bill quickly making its way through the Florida Legislature.

And now we've run into the nexus of the universe. Someone. Please hold me.

Truer words were never spoken.
