A middle school in Texas has decided that a Christmas decoration featuring a Charlie Brown character talking about the true meaning of Christmas is too controversial.
FOX News reported:
School censors “Charlie Brown Christmas” poster
One of the most poignant scenes in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is when Linus stands on a stage and recites a passage from the Holy Bible describing the Christmas story.
“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.
Dedra Shannon, a staffer at Patterson Middle School in Killeen, Texas, was so inspired by the scene she decided to use images to decorate the door to the nurse’s office…
The decorations were installed on December 5. On December 7, Ms. Shannon was confronted by the school’s principal.
“She said, ‘please don’t hate me, but unfortunately you’re going to have to take your poster down,” Ms. Shannon said. “I’m disappointed. It is a slap in the face of Christianity.”
The principal went on to explain that the poster violated the U.S. Constitution.
“She said my poster is an issue of separation of church and state,” Ms. Shannon told me. “She said the poster had to come down because it might offend kids from other religions or those who do not have a religion.”
This sort of ridiculous political correctness is part of the reason Trump won.
The left is going to learn that one way or another in the coming years.
