politics in school.. does not compute
Well, reading what is written at Patheos, it looks more like he jumped in with two feet to test the school to see if it is actually neutral in regard to religion.
Having lived in Florida, I suspect he will encounter resistance, but not from the school. (Remember what happened to Jessica Ahlquist, from Rhode Island, a state founded on religious freedom? Florida has no such history.) He will be called out in the state legislature. Fellow students and school staff will turn on him. There will be death threats called into his house.
Except Florida is far more dangerous for that kind of stuff than Rhode Island.
