Historic First: DeSantis to Require Teaching Hebrew Bible in Florida’s Public Schools
In an August 27 speech at the Nashville Women’s Conference, Laurie Cardoza-Moore from the Republican Party announced that she was working with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to make his state the first to teach “the Hebrew Bible” a requirement in Civics in Florida public schools.
“They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the founding of our nation,” Cardozo-Moore explained. “They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the drafting of our founding documents. They will learn about the Hebrew Bible and the role it played in the structure of our form of government. Our nation was founded on the Torah.”
“Florida is the only state in the nation now that is teaching what God commands us to teach our children,” she said. Moore is the head of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, a Christian Zionist organization that battles antisemitism.
A video of her statements was posted by a far-left organization, saying it posted the clip “to expose the agenda of the extreme right.” The organization slammed her speech, describing Cardozo-Moore as a “Trump-loving, anti– Islam, religious-right activist who has recently begun to focus her efforts on ensuring that public school textbooks eliminate what she claims is anti-Semitic, anti-Judeo/Christian, Anti-American, pro-Islamic indoctrination of students.” (I365N / VFI News)
