In just the latest incident in the War on Christmas, a Kentucky elementary school cut Linus Van Pelts famous monologue from A Charlie Brown Christmas, in which he shares the meaning of the holiday season by reading Luke 2:8-14.
Linus has been seen doing just that for 50 years on CBS every single year since its first 1965 broadcast.
Yet the liberals in charge even in the heart of Kentucky decided it was too controversial and cut it out of the program. All this while liberal school official across America keep indoctrinating students in Islam.
Well the administration probably wasnt expecting the kind of response they received… which millions of Americans are cheering online tonight at the video has gone viral.
During Thursdays production of A Charlie Brown Christmas, parents seemed prepared at just the right moment to recite Linus Christmas message. In unison, the Kentucky parents started reading Luke 2:8-14.
In response to Thursday nights happenings, a parent from the Kentucky school and a representative from Alliance Defending Freedom, the religious liberty organization that called on Johnson County Schools in Paintsville, Kentucky, to reverse the decision to cut the monologue, shared their reaction on Fox News Fox and Friends Friday morning.
The parents in the bleachers basically quoted the verse from the book of Luke, and it was just an amazing moment it really was, Joey Collins, parent of one Kentucky student, said. Everybody was pretty much in tears and clapping. It was just a great time.

The famous speech caught in the center of the Kentucky controversy shared words fairly familiar to Peanuts creator Charles Schulz. In fact, he often used his cartoons to share his faith.
Humor which does not say anything is worthless humor, Schulz once told Decision magazine. So I contend that a cartoonist must be given a chance to do his own preaching.
In fact, Schulz originally added the minute-long monologue because, in his words, the Biblical meaning of Christmas had been lost in the general good-time frivolity. As it turns out, even when the first script was written, CBS the station that originally aired the special wasnt too happy about the Scriptural message.
But the monologue made the cut for CBS and, thanks to outspoken Kentucky parents, it made the cut during Thursdays elementary production, too.
