The people of Apopka, Florida love their Jesus.
That’s why, last year, a local school board gave permission to a Christian group to hand out Bibles to students (leading a young atheist activist to counter with a freethought literature distribution of his own).
It’s also the city where there’s a tight race for one of the seats on the board of commissioners. The election between incumbent Marilyn Ustler McQueen and challenger Diane Velazquez takes place in two weeks and it just took a nasty turn.
After a candidate forum Monday night, McQueen took to Facebook to post thoughts about her opponent. Her biggest complaint?
Velasquez doesn’t appear to be a True Christian™!
