The line between art and pornography is at the center of an education dispute after a Florida charter school principal resigned following accusations that middle school students were shown inappropriate adult content.

At issue? Students in the school were shown images of Michelangelo’s Renaissance period sculpture “David,” leading to complaints that the children were shown pornographic material.


Principal Hope Carrasquilla, according to the Democrat, resigned Monday after the school board chair told her to resign or be fired. Chair Barney Bishop confirmed to the Democrat that he gave Carrasquilla that ultimatum, but would not explain why due to “advice” from the school’s attorney. Parents were informed by email on Monday.

The Florida Times-Union wrote,

The statue depicts David, hero of the Jewish Torah and Christian Bible who slew Goliath and went on to become a king. Most depictions of David in paintings and sculptures to that point showed him as a boy facing or standing over the fallen giant, but the 26-year-old Michelangelo depicted him as a muscular nude man, alone and defiant, before the fight. The sculpture is a symbol of the strength and independence of the Florentines, according to the Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze, the museum which displays it, and it has become of the world's most recognizable and treasured works of art.


There are copies of "David" all over the world, including a cast-bronze replica in the courtyard of The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota where it became the focus of the official seal of the city.

 The Witch Hunt continues, now even the Greek classic are not immune!

They know not what they are doing. They don't know and don't want to know the harm that they are doing to the children!

A clueless Capitol and its obsession with drag shows | Steve Bousquet

The Florida Legislature has become a parody of itself.

A state Capitol that was once a place of stirring debate on the overriding issues of the day is now all about “prosthetic genitals.” Tallahassee has lost its way. That’s what happens when one party has total control.

The latest illustration of the Legislature’s flight from reality came Friday in the House Commerce Committee as Republicans pushed ahead with a bill they say is for “protection of children.”

The hypocrisy is staggering.

Too many Florida kids go to bed at night hungry, and too many others die or suffer life-altering trauma from gun violence.

But some of the same House members who a few hours later Friday voted to legalize the permitless carrying of concealed weapons have decided that the real danger to our kids is not loaded guns.

It’s drag shows.

You may have been cancelled by your property insurance carrier, or someone you care about is couch-surfing to avoid living on the streets. But the supermajority in Tallahassee is fighting to protect kids from, among other things, “the lewd exposure of prosthetic or imitation genitals or breasts.”


“Fortunately, I personally have very little personal experience with these kinds of things,” he said.

You got that?

He doesn’t know what it is but he’s protecting the children… from what? He doesn’t know but he’s protecting them!

The Democrats are not buying it!

Democrats call the bill overly subjective. They pelted Fine with questions for more than an hour, asking him to define “knowingly,” and “lewd,” and what constitutes a “live” performance, and whether Pride parades with drag performers might be outlawed.

If kids at drag shows are off limits, Fine was asked, what about a gathering at Hooters where the waitress sings Happy Birthday?

“It’s not a show in front of a live audience,” Fine said.


Rep. Dotie Joseph, D-North Miami, called Fine’s bill “state-sponsored homophobia” and added: “It’s bludgeoning businesses over the head for supporting a community that needs our help more than ever.”

Opponents accused Republicans of creating a “manufactured moral panic” in Florida.

Friday’s vote was 13 to 6. Every yes vote was cast by Republicans, and every no vote was cast by Democrats.

So you think that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats?

A drag story hour got firebombed in Ohio!

Fox 8 reports,

A local church says it was vandalized on Friday ahead of its drag show brunch and story hour planned for April 1.

The Community Church of Chesterland said in a press release that its sign was destroyed by Molotov cocktails leaving minimal damage to the church, which was unoccupied at the time, and no injuries.

“Despite the minimal damage, the church is taking extraordinary security precautions ahead of the planned protest scheduled for April 1 and services will resume as scheduled,” the church said.

Also, a sign that usually hangs in the front portion of the church was smashed with a sledgehammer.

“That kind of violence is pitiful. There are people who say, ‘think of the children, think of the children.’ Well, children go here. We have a preschool here,” said Pastor Jess Peacock.

Think what it is teaching the children about violence?
