I'm posting from a cell phone, so I apologize for the lack of detail.  But that whole one finger typing thing...

You may have heard about the school distrinct in Kentucky that decided that "A Charlie Brown Christmas" play could only be performed if the actual references to the religious reasons for the season were left out.  I don't know about you folks, but the part of the original that I remember best is the part where Linus recites the Bible passage that explains it all.

This came about because one, count 'em, one, person complained.  Instead of doing the decent thing and just not going to or allowing their child to participate in the play, they whined.  And the powers that be, completely ignoring the part of the Constitution that says that there can be no interference with the free exercise of religion, put their jackboots down.

But this time the parents stomped back.  And when the play reached the point where all that horrifying religion comes in but had been barred, they were ready.  And they stepped up and read the passage aloud as a group.

Bravo and bravo and bravo again!

You can read the story at, including a video that I couldn't figure out how to imbed from my phone.


  1. It should be noted that Charles Schultz had to battle CBS Television to have the passage included in the original TV broadcast. He won.
