Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers out there. Hope you and your families have a safe and happy holiday. And also, will be praying for a Dallas Cowboy victory.
One last thing…
Heard a story recently about some parents who took exception to the religious aspects of a little play known as, A Charlie Brown Christmas. The Christmas special has long been a favorite play for kids, as well as an animated TV special aired around this time of year.
The following is a message provided by one atheist group regarding a school trip to see the play:
“While everyone loves Charlie Brown, the religious content of the program is a problem, as is the trip to a church to see it,” wrote (Anne) Orsi on the group’s Facebook page. “Oddly enough, not all kids at the school are Christian, and their parents don’t want them singled out as ‘different.’ Who’d a thunk it?”
While the irony is almost certainly lost on people that complain about such religious events – that they take exception to others forcing their religion upon them, and fight back by forcing their non-religion on those same people – I’d like to take the time to recognize this particular atheist organization trying to rain on everybody else’s parade this holiday season.
So atheists, I present to you the easily most offensive portion of A Charlie Brown Christmas in your eyes – Linus, quoting scripture in an attempt to quantify the true meaning of Christmas.
