Kentucky School Removes Bible Verses from 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' and Parents Recite It Anyway

On Thursday, Johnson County Schools in Paintsville played A Charlie Brown Christmas special to an auditorium packed full of students, parents and administrators. Yet, they omitted a piece of the story where Linus recites Bible verses to explain the meaning of Christmas to Charlie Brown.

School administrators explained that the move was "inclusive" for all the students. This is the part they edited out:

"8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."

Yet, Kentucky parents went ahead and started reciting the omitted Bible verses in unison for everyone in the auditorium to hear. Joey Collins, the parent of one Kentucky student, said, “The parents in the bleachers basically quoted the verse from the book of Luke, and it was just an amazing moment — it really was. Everybody was pretty much in tears and clapping. It was just a great time.”
