image for Complaint filed in Florida to ban Bible as “too woke”

Stevens cites examples directly from the tome to prove that the Bible is too “woke” to be available to young students.

Critical race theory is a body of academic work that originated in law schools in the 1970s and 1980s.

The legislature also passed the “Don’t Say Gay” law that prohibits teachers from discussing gender identity or sexual orientation in certain grades.

“With the constant concerns about teaching Critical Race Theory, should we not take stock of the Bible’s position on slavery?

I am concerned our young white students will read such passages and wake up to civilization’s sordid past,” he wrote in his complaint.

“If they’re gonna ban books, then the whole library should be in play.

My hope — and it’s a longshot — is that they will apply their own standards to themselves and ban the Bible,” Stevens told the Miami New Times. »
