One of the most wonderful scenes in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is when Linus stands on the 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.

It sums up the true meaning and the true reason for the holiday season. The birth of our Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST!

From Todd Starnes:

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 included a picture of Linus, the scrawny Christmas tree and that classic passage of dialogue about the true meaning of the holiday.

The decorations were installed on Dec. 5 and on Dec. 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.”

Ms. Shannon was told she could keep Linus on the door – but the Bible passage had to be removed.

“I just took the entire thing down,” she said. “I wasn’t going to leave Linus and the Christmas tree without having the dialogue. That’s the whole point of why it was put up.”

Besides, there were plenty of other posters promoting all sorts of events and clubs on campus – so why target the Christmas-themed poster?

“Throughout the school there are talks about diversity. Well, you aren’t being very diverse if you are not allowing the Christians to put something up that refers to a Christian holiday,” she said.

That’s a really good point. And don’t forget – Christmas is a federal holiday.

Shari Savage at Conservative Tribune has this:

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.

Danny Breyeris the pastor of the Soldiers of the Cross Cowboy Fellowship near Fort Hood. He is also Ms. Shannon’s father and said, “People want us to be tolerant for everything – but they don’t tolerate Christianity. They bow down to everything else – but when it comes to Christianity…”

Yes sir, pastor. That’s a spot-on analysis.

Those who holler about tolerance are the least tolerant of all.

It’s not the first time “A Charlie Brown Christmas” has caused holiday controversy. Last year, a school canceled a stage performance of the Christmas classic over similar constitutional concerns.

I hope the Killeen Independent School District will reconsider their decision to censor Ms. Shannon’s lovely Christmas decorations.

Public schools are supposed to be in the education business and Ms. Shannon was simply educating students about the true meaning of Christmas.

And boys and girls really do need to know what Christmas is really all about. Right, Charlie Brown?

Please share on Facebook and Twitter to show that religious freedom — and common sense — aren’t dead, but we have to defend them at every turn.

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS
