Atheist Group to Distribute Pamphlets in Schools of Cartoon Bible Sexually Assaulting Woman

“But that is how society begins to fall apart. But these creatures would be the first to holler for help when they are in need and who comes to their rescue but those who believe. Remember the blacks would still be in slavery if it were not for believers. It wasn’t the atheists who were .the first abolitionists, It wasn’t the atheists ho hid the Jews from the Nazis. It wasn’t the atheists who went over to help the Ebola victims. They contribute nothing to this world. They are empty people who only believe in themselves. Which is fine as long as they leave believers alone.”
An atheist group is planning to distribute a pamphlet in several Florida public high schools that depicts an illustration of a cartoon Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.
According to a report by Brittany Hughes at CNSNews.com, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) plans to hand out a pamphlet entitled “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible,” with a front cover that is illustrated with an animated Bible with arms, legs, salacious facial expression, and salivating mouth, with its hand aggressively extended up the dress of a screaming woman, who is attempting to run away from it.
On its website, FFRF states that its free speech lawsuit filed last year against the Orange County School District was dismissed by Judge Kendall Sharp of the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, since the school district had agreed to allow FFRF to distribute all the literature it had initially prohibited. FFRF says it filed a free speech suit after the school district allowed an evangelical Christian group to distribute Bibles.
“This is a victory. The court has acknowledged that the school district is allowing all the materials that were initially prohibited,” said Dan Barker, FFRF co-president. “We disagree with how the court and the school district chose to handle this clear-cut discrimination, so we’re planning to appeal on some issues, but overall, it’s a win.”
In its motion to dismiss the case, the U.S. District Court did agree, however, with a previous Florida court ruling relating to materials outside groups may distribute in public schools.
“Indeed, Defendant may lawfully prohibit outside groups from distributing materials that are not appropriate for distribution in a school setting with the aim of controlling student conduct in the schools,” said the court. “This includes dissemination of content that is sexually explicit, indecent, lewd, or offensive in [sic] such would ‘undermine the school’s basic educational mission.’”
The memo, dated April 22, 2013, and referencing “passive distribution of atheist materials,” provided the following list of “approved materials” that FFRF and Central Florida Freethought Community (CFFC), FFRF’s local chapter, may “passively distribute” on May 2, 2013, in schools:
- The Age of Reason
- What They Said About Religion
- Ten Common Myths About Atheists
- What is Wrong with the Ten Commandments?
- What is an Atheist?
- Nontheistic Students in Your School
- Humanist of the Year Award
The memo also stated, “NO OTHER MATERIALS MAY BE DISTRIBUTED.”
High school principals are instructed in the memo, “You must have a member of your staff ensure that only the materials identified above are on the tables to be passively distributed.”
- Real anti-Christian bigotry, fake company
- Trojan Horse rules ‘stop us being Christian school’
- Churches targeted in new wave of attacks
- Godless millennials could end the political power of the religious right (Notice the anti-christian-agenda of “the Guardian”)
