image for Florida Will Now Force Kids to Observe a 1-Minute “Moment of Silence” in School

Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed into a law a “Moment of Silence” bill that serves no educational purpose whatsoever but will allow Republicans to say they put prayer back in public school.

He said that after referencing the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

To put that another way, Fine thought about Parkland, blamed it on kids having “issues,” and thought the cure was forced silence.

But other Republicans, including DeSantis, admitted what everyone else knows is true: This is all about injecting Christianity in schools:.

No court decision has ever said otherwise, and no atheist group has ever called for censorship on those matters.

DeSantis is lying because he’s a Republican and he knows his conservative Christian supporters are dumb enough to believe him.

By the way, the law says “students may not interfere with other students’ participation” during the silence. »
