'Merry Christmas Charlie Brown' Performance Canceled Following Atheist Complaints

A church in Little Rock, Ark., canceled one performance of "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" after an atheist organization complained and said students should not be exposed to a show with Christian themes as part of a school field trip.

The controversy began when a parent became upset at the school's offer to take students to the church to watch the play, which is based on the "A Charlie Brown Christmas" cartoon and contains some Christian themes. Although the field trip was optional, the woman planned to allow her daughter to attend the production out of fear she would be singled-out by her classmates. The ...

Yes. Break, or at least help to break this terrible government-citizen co-dependency cycle so people will be more responsible and government won't have to be so awful huge to accommodate the people's increasing lack thereof.

Unbelievable. Charlie brown is "offensive" and promotes Christianity but glee promotes immorality and that's ok. Woe to those who call evil good and good evil. It's sickening to see how much our country has changed . I better be careful I might be labeled " a hater" . You know what? So be it. I'm not ashamed of Jesus

Either homeschool the children or else send them to a private church school. Either way is more appropriate then sending children to public schools. When I get married and have children I plan on homeschooling them. When I get a farm in Eastern Colorado I will build a one room schoolhouse and my wife will educate them in that one room schoolhouse. The school year will begin after Labor Day and end around the end of March. 6 months of school and 6 months off for my children.

I strongly believe the performance should have been held. It is long past time that we, as Christians, should stand up against those of no faith who are attacking our rights. We also need to stand against this phony conception of the "separation of church and state."
