Florida school board learns what “freedom of religion” really means, doesn’t like it

January 19, 2015

When faced with a lawsuit over their refusal to allow non-Christian groups to distribute material alongside those who were distributing Bibles, a Florida school board finally relented and said others could hand out their books and pamphlets as well.  But when they finally realized what that meant, and that religious groups they didn’t like (including the Satanists) would have similar access to children as their preferred ones, they decided to cancel the event completely.

You have to either allow no groups at all to distribute their materials, or allow all of them: anything else become Constitutionally problematic. But situations like this expose the hypocrisy behind those who claim religious freedom to defend their actions, but then immediately back down when it becomes clear theirs may not be the only religion represented.
