Church gives in, cancels Charlie Brown play
Posted by Staff
The Blaze reports:

Charlie Brown may be a harmless cartoon character, but atheist activists in Little Rock, Arkansas, have pushed fervently to prevent a local public school from seeing a church production featuring the popular children’s figure. In the wake of the intense controversy over Terry Elementary School’s decision to send children to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at Agape Church, the house of worship has now cancelled the student matinee performance of the show.

While the children who were excited to attend the play may be disappointed, Agape’s pastor, Happy Caldwell, made it clear that the decision was made in the best interest of the teachers and actors, alike — parties who would, no doubt, come under fire if the production continued as planned.
