Good grief, Charlie Brown. What a bunch of blockheads.
A school principal in Killeen, Texas, got her bells jingled after ordering a staffer on Wednesday to remove a Charlie Brown Christmas poster quoting a Bible passage,. “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown,” Linus said.
Well, ma’am, this is Texas. As in “don’t mess with.” And one of the things they don’t mess with is Christmas. So when the state attorney general called, she probably knew to expect a lump of coal in her stocking.
“This is an attack on religious liberty and a violation of the First Amendment and state law,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “I am calling on the school board of the Killeen Independent School District to immediately reverse their unlawful decision.”
The school board has a long history of standing up for religious liberty. The Board of Trustees voted to change the name of “Winter Break” to “Christmas Break,” refused to cease praying before meetings, and ignored the federal Department of Education’s demand for transgender bathrooms.
In 2013, then-Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, signed the “Merry Christmas” bill into law. TheBlaze reported that this legislation protected public school officials’ right to make biblical references to Christmas. The principal might have inadvertently broken this law.
This isn’t Linus’ first foray into the storm of political correctness. Fox News reported that last year a Kentucky school cancelled a Charlie Brown Christmas play due to the inclusion of Bible verses.
In another school, one horrified grandmother told WND that “Silent Night” had been replaced by the “Whip Nae Nae” song. Seriously.
The hypocrisy of school officials who preach diversity but practice the exclusion of Christians is glaring. Dec. 25 is called Christmas. Not Wintermas, not Breakmas, not Giftmas. At the center of the holiday is Jesus Christ.
Thank you, Linus. Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown.Texas, we’re depending on you.
