When Ky. School Cut Bible Out Of 'Charlie Brown Christmas' Play, Parents Did THIS

A Kentucky elementary school gained unwanted national attention recently when it cut out the part of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where Linus Van Pelt recites the Bible in their version of the children's play.

That section of the play traditionally begins with Charlie Brown's exasperated question, "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?" And Linus replies by reciting the Christmas story from Luke 2:8-14.

But according to The Blaze, the omission also caught the attention of radio talk show host Glenn Beck, who suggested a way the parents could protest the school's decision.

Many of the parents watching the play took Beck's advice. At Thursday night's performance, when the student playing Charlie Brown asked if anyone knows what Christmas is all about, the crowd in near-unison recited the omitted Luke 2:8-14.

One of the parents, Joey Collins, expressed to The Blaze: “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.”

"Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz almost had that scene cut by CBS out of the cartoon the play is based off of back in 1965, but he always wanted it in there because he felt that the true meaning of Christmas "had been lost in the general good-time frivolity.”2

Schulz once explained in a magazine interview, “Humor which does not say anything is worthless humor. So I contend that a cartoonist must be given a chance to do his own preaching.”
