A Texas judge has ordered a school district to restore a decoration that included a biblical verse recited by Linus in the 1960s TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” and add the line that labels it “Ms. Shannon’s Christmas message.”
I guess that way it’s not the school endorsing Christ but just good ol’ Ms. Shannon, the friendly nurse.
This is a change as school district officials in the Killeen school district ordered Ms. Shannon to remove the decoration which featured the Bible verse that Linus quotes in the Christmas special,
According to the AP, “Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued to get it restored, arguing the state’s 2013 so-called Merry Christmas law means schools can’t ‘silence a biblical reference to Christmas.”
A happy Christmas ending for you. But the fact that this was an issue at all is just nuts.
