An atheist group is accusing an Arkansas grade school of violating students’ constitutional rights by inviting them to a performance of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a local church.
"We're not saying anything bad about Charlie Brown," Anne Orsi, a Little Rock attorney and vice president of the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers, told KARK 4 News. "The problem is that it's got religious content and it's being performed in a religious venue and that doesn't just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely."
Forget about the fact that no student at the Arkansas school is required to go to the performance, the venue is an inanimate object, there is no "separation of church and state" in the Constitution, and that the so-called "religious content" Ms. Orsi is referring to in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is a factually accurate recitation of the origins/meaning of Christmas. Public school children must remain of the belief that Christmas is all about Santa Claus, i.e., the Democrat Party platform pre two-thirds delegate "approval" of this!
