A Florida Atheist, Chaz Stevens, has Petitioned to Ban the Bible in the Miami-Dade and Broward Schools. As of July of 2021, more than 200 books have been banned in school districts throughout Florida. It's one of the states with the high number of school book banning incidents in America. Stevens cites age inappropriateness, social-emotional learning, mentions of bestiality and rape, and "weakness" as reasons to ban the Bible. Each sense is accompanied by a corresponding Bible excerpt. Stevens warns. "If they ignore me, doesn't that tell you something? The government can't pick and choose religion, but can they choose which books they review for banning and which ones they don't?"
