Now they won't even let Christians hand out Bibles in Orange County, Florida.

Oh! Wait! Actually they did. Orange County school district had no problem when a Christianorganization, on three separate occasions, handed out leaflets, and bibles to kids coming out of schools. But, now that non-Christian organizations want equal time with the kids? Wellll....now it's a problem.

The school board did not have an issue permitting evangelical group World Changers of Florida to hand out Bibles on three separate occasions — and the group fully intends to do it again in January. In fact, the group has already purchased copies of the New International Version to be handed out in 18 district high schools. “We’re looking forward to doing it again,” said World Changers Vice President Greg Harper.

The “open forum” may have applied to the Christian group, but when Satanists announced their intent to distribute an activity book that includes coloring pages, a maze, a word jumble, and other educational materials, and lessons in morality, suddenly the non-Christians were “taking advantage.”

The irony is that the evangelicals are calling this an attack on Christians!


World Changers is unhappy with this latest development. Despite that it is an obvious attack on those who do not subscribe to the Christian faith, Harper calls the planned policy change an attack on Christians.

“They seem to be moving against the interests of a large part of the community,” he said, likening it to the district’s August decision to ban football chaplains at schools. “The Bible will open somebody’s heart, somebody’s mind, and cause them to pursue answers.” The World Changers VP likened the policy amendment to the district’s August decision to ban football chaplains after receiving complaints of Christian proselytization.

Now, how Harper can view this as an attack on Christians, when the practice was perfectly acceptable when Christians were the only ones attempting to participate is completely beyond me. I think that Lucien Greaves has a more honest take on the situation:


"It strongly implies they never intended to have a plurality of voices," said Doug Mesner, co-founder and spokesman for The Satanic Temple, who also goes by the pseudonym Lucien Greaves.
Orange moves to change policy to keep Satanist coloring book out of schools


But, you know. We live in a nation where Christians are under attack...

I'd like to pass out history and science books to the students as they leave school.
That you could probably do, so long as you aren't doing so with a theological message. I just think it's hilarious that they had no problem with the "outreach" when it was Christians doing the outreaching.

Chances are this is going to be a very short topic. I really don't expect the theocrats to want this topic to be given much attention. After all, it kinda destroys their whole, "Everyone is out to get poor us!" narrative...

Christians don't see the world as all others. Christians are unconscious to all the perks they receive on a daily basis; yet feel persecuted if all things don't go exactly their way.

I live in a major metropolitan area. Last night on the local evening news, there was a story of a man seeing the face of Jesus burning into his car's hood insulation from the engine heat.

Last week a viewer sent in a still image of a story of a house fire covered by the station. The image was of the smoke raising from the fire and what the viewer claimed was the face of Jesus in the smoke. That got actual air time.

Well, if I were a Christian, faced with Satanism literature, I'd prefer that people found out more about:

- an infinitely wise God (who made mistakes)
- a perfect God (who was murderously jealous)
- an omniscient God (who couldn't predict that certain things would happen)
- a transcendentally moral God (who gave instructions on how to acquire slaves and unwilling female partners) and
- an infinitely merciful God (who killed millions of people in rage).

Hey - anything else would be anti-Christian!

So I hope that's clear.

You have to understand this.

Christians allowed you to get this uppity by going along with your abolishment of Christianity in our society as it was. Christianity was and still is the Mother's Milk of our founders and the founding ideological backdrop as well as the guiding principles of this country and most of our citizens.

By the way, were you blessed with U.S. citizenship?

Christians who are so unwilling to speak out about the persecution by Muslims of Christians around the world only emboldens these jihadists.

Christians are the world's most persecuted minority.

NOT Muslims.

Will you ever get on the good foot with your facts?

Women are the world's most persecuted segment. Bar none. Nothing else comes remotely close.

They're the persecuted majority

WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH woah

They're handing out colouring books, word scrambles and mazes?

These are elementary school?????

These psychopaths were giving religious pamphlets out to other people's little children??? Never for a second thinking "this is so subhuman disgusting I'm destined to burn in hell for it"???

Uh yeah. Someone hands out a religious pamohlet to a child in my neighborhood I guarantee there will be one call to police.

The police will not be called the second time. Maybe by his loved ones a few days later...
