Legislation that will encourage coercive prayer in schools sat unsigned on Gov. Rick Scott’s desk for 15 days.
Was this a sign that the Florida Republican, who’d suggested that he was leaning toward the bill, had a change of heart?
Not so much. On March 23 Scott finally did what had been expected all along – he approved a bad bill that will allow “inspirational messages” in public schools.
A bill that would allow Florida students to deliver “inspirational messages” is just one step from becoming law. Can lawsuits be far behind?
