Atheists cry foul over ‘A
Charlie Brown Christmas’

Daily Caller [Washington DC], by Caroline May

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 10:20:50 PM

Charlie Brown’s Christmas is on the outs at an elementary school in Little Rock, Ark. — at least among atheists who are calling foul over a planned student trip to see a stage production of the beloved Peanuts story. The trouble began when students at Terry Elementary School brought home letters detailing the trip to see “A Charlie Brown Christmas” at a local church, according to a report from Arkansas’ KARK. A parent who had a problem with the play’s content notified the local atheist group of the field trip. (Snip) “The problem is that it’s got religious content

So they are afraid their kids will turn religious? Do they believe they will never be "confronted" with religion? And what is "atheism" other than another form of religon believing man is god?

It´s time to take a bunch of Atheists out on a lone, dark road and let a couple of guys try that Charlie Brown football kick to the part of man´s body where it hurts.

Came home from work and sat down to eat. The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving started on TV and just like every year she pulled the ball away from him.

Sometimes we miss the good old days where some dark alley justice would take care of these grinches.

What gives atheists the right to dictate what children can see? Keep your child home and don´t ruin it for the rest of them.

Last time I looked, atheists were a very small percentage of the population.

Charlie Brown Christmas is my favorite of all the cartoons, especilally the Luke recitation. It´s time we Christians start fighting back.

I´m torn between wanting to smack these people around and feeling most sad and sorry for them. What kind of odd duck objects to the VERY REASON that a holiday exists? How do these poor souls even explain this to their kids? The whistle blower mom could have just kept her child home, no one except the administration would have had to know why the kid was not in class or part of the field trip. I know, I know - they don´t believe the same as we do. I got it. But because they have raised their children clearly in opposition to 75-80% of the rest of the country, they believe it is their prerogative to object to the holiday for the vast majority.

These sad sacks deserve our pity. They don´t know what they don´t know...

Anybody have the cojones to finally put a stop to these single digit offense takers ruling our world?

They have no strength if they´re not given it. And that´s all they have - what they´ve been given.

They have not the strength to demand, but ask in a loud voice and people shrink at their volume - they have no power but what was conceded to them.

Words spoken cannot hurt, compel, demand with reward, or otherwise accrue any desired conclusion, unless allowed by eunuchs fleeing their own defenses.

This isn´t an endorsement of a particular religion but more of an explanation as to the reason for the season. This presentation is an educational lesson for the festival of Christmas.

"Gee Daddy, what is Christmas?" "I´m sorry Son. That is a cultural festival based on beliefs you are not allowed to be exposed to."

Sounds like censorship to me. How about using the same logic on the Homosexual agenda?

It take 100 more faith to believe in the gaps in the fossil record than believe in Christ.

A bird may, by genetics, pass traits to have a longer beak, but it never became a bear (anothe species). Yes, you see the fossil record never shows one species becoming another (Darwin had a good guess).

When are Americans going to stop putting up with this crap? I used to bring my daughters history textbook to parent teacher conferences with pages marked with post it notes and would ask the teachers why they thought it was ok to demonize the white European immigrants who built this country. It wasn´t comfortable or fun but the look on their faces was priceless and someone has to do it. Stand up.

There is no reason to believe that evolution and God need be mutually exclusive. I think both concepts can co-exist. One does not need to take everything written literally, especially since much of it was not meant to be in the first place.

Mrs. Voxlapidis has an elegant solution.

The parents of the children who want their kids to see CB should keep them out of school that day and take them to the movie.

This action will effect school attendance which in return will effect funding for the school.

The atheists´ kids, off course, can attend class.

Both sides win.

#17, that would be a good punishment! BTW, I always wondered what happened to Madeleine Murray O´Hair after she was killed...Did she just go poof into thin air? Or what? I always wondered if atheists would just disappear or if they had to pay a price not just for their willful denial of God, but for trying to erase God from our society. O´Hair has done much more damage to our society than the ACLU in their worst cases...and she got rich off of her bad deeds too!

Easy Solution:
Have the students that want to see it meet at the play on a Saturday or Sunday as a group.
Maybe even with their parents or guardians. Not a class trip anymore but the class is seeing the play. Let´s the air out of atheist

Athieism is the only true God and Darwin is his prophet.

If you don´t want to believe in God, fine, don´t believe in god. Show the world the strength of your convictions, don´t take time off from your job at Christmas, refuse that Christmas bonus, or any presents from your infidal family. Don´t participate in heathen Christian dinner festivities. Explain to your children why they will not receive any presents or stockings full of treats. Condemn and persecute the unbelievers. Be true to your faith and when you die the prophet Darwin will welcome you to your eternity of darkness and nothingness.

Me, personally, I have a different idea.

I remember having two kindergarten students who parents were atheists. Nobody cared. However, when we had our Christmas party the parents chose to keep their children at home which was fine. We did get a little annoyed when the parents wanted to stop by the school to pick up their child´s Christmas party goodies. Needless to say they were told that there were no goodies for their kids.

These people apparently don´t understand "the free exercise of religion," as stated in the first amendment of the Bill of Rights. The relation between the government and religion is often incorrectly characterized as Separation of church and state, as prohibiting a state church, or in other ways, but these characterizations have no basis in the first amendment. The actual language is: congress shall make no law regarding an establishment of religion. No law-literally-as Biden would say. No law! Taken literally, there would be nothing to say about such a school presentation. Of course free exercise is not coerced exercise. A student should be free to go or not to go.

The old ´have their cake and eat it too´ ploy #37. lol. I think that atheists suffer from an extremely stiff neck in regards to their personal belief system.

What is astonishing to me about atheists is that when you read in the latter part of the book of Revelation, after the 1000 years of Christ´s reign, there are STILL going to be people who won´t believe! So I take current atheists with a grain of salt and a bit of pity. But I have no sympathy for them whatsoever.

Atheists -- the only group of people with no invisible means of support.

I once had a minister tell me that hell was an individual state of mind...if you were a little old lady that liked to sit quietly knitting and listening to opera, hell might be filled with psychedelic lights and acid rock, yet if you were a hard core biker, hell might be filled with chamber music.

Maybe for an atheist, hell would be 24/7 mass, monks chanting or nuns praying.

It is ironic what the "atheists" choose to protest...they don´t want anyone else to enjoy or participate in what the Christians choose to believe, yet they never protest time off work, "seasonal" bonuses, or sales at the stores...can you imagine the scene at Wal-Mart if an atheist were insisting on paying full price because he didn´t believe in Christmas?

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Move over, “Animal House,” Hollywood’s got nothing on the federal government when it comes to buying booze. Federal spending records show the government spends seven-figures a year stocking its cabinets with wine, beer and liquor. In fiscal 2013, the last year for which there are complete records, the government spent almost $1.3 million on alcohol, more than quadruple the $315,000 spent in 2005. The spending on liquor has increased over the years toward the $1 million mark, with 2013’s tab growing more than $400,000 over 2012. “You could say that Washington’s quite literally drunk on other people’s money,” said Jonathan Bydlak,

The Wisconsin Congressman has been looking into the problem of upward economic mobility and how effective federal programs are in combatting poverty.

Sharpton scolded Paul for thinking Obama doesn’t already know “full well the history’ of men like Martin Luther King, Jr. being spied on. Sharpton called this a “cynical use of race” on the right, marking a Republican slamming President Obama for not talking enough

BEIJING- U.S. first lady Michelle Obama met her Chinese counterpart on Friday, a long-anticipated encounter during a week-long trip to promote education and cultural ties. Obama, who is visiting China with her mother and two daughters, is expected to forgo discussion of trade, human rights and the tangle of other issues that have weighed on U.S.-China relations. Instead, she plans to focus on building goodwill through soft diplomacy.(Snip) Obama, a Harvard-educated lawyer, wore wide-legged black slacks and a loose black vest. Conversation between the two women was stilted during a morning visit to a calligraphy class, especially because both spoke

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

(Video) The Obama ladies are in the house — the house of China, that is. First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics. No reporters accompanied the family on the trip. “The nature of her visit is really quite

“Obamacare” as shorthand for the Affordcable Care Act was first used mostly by critics of the law, but now everyone’s using the moniker and President Obama has long since embraced it. But apparently no one told Nancy Pelosi, because she’s still ticked off at how much people talk about “Obamacare” instead of the “Affordable Care Act.” In response to a reporter asking a question about Obamacare being a political winner or loser, Pelosi said, “By the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act. It’s called the Affordable Care Act. I know you didn’t intend any compliment or derogatory––it’s called the

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf. During the five-plus years

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers. The racial disparities in American education, from access to high-level classes and experienced teachers to discipline, were highlighted in a report released Friday by the Education Department´s civil rights arm. The suspensions — and disparities — begin at the earliest grades. Black children represent about 18 percent of children in preschool programs in schools, but they make up almost half of the preschoolers who are suspended more than once, the report said. Six percent of the nation´s districts with preschools reported suspending at

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."

College basketball can wait. Did you know that March is actually National Nutrition Month? Today, First Lady Michelle Obama urged Americans via her "Let´s Move!" initiative to challenge their family members to eat one new fruit or vegetable per week in March to faithfully observe the occasion. "March is National Nutrition Month and you can celebrate by challenging your family to try a new fruit or vegetable each week," First Lady Michelle Obama said in an e-mail to supporters today. Never mind that there were less than two "each weeks" left in National Nutrition Month when the e-mail challenge was

Today’s Washington Post features an article by Steven Mufson and Juliet Eilperin headlined, “The biggest lease holder in Canada’s oil sands isn’t Exxon Mobil or Chevron. It’s the Koch brothers.” The article was based on a newly-issued two-page report by the far-left International Forum on Globalization. The Post reported: You might expect the biggest lease owner in Canada’s oil sands, or tar sands, to be one of the international oil giants, like Exxon Mobil or Royal Dutch Shell. But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned

During her visit to China, first lady Michelle Obama pointed out that the ability to travel outside of the United States was "rare" but that she chose China for a reason. "It’s very rare that I have the opportunity to travel outside of the United States, and it’s even more rare to have the opportunity to travel with three generations — with my daughters, and with my mother," she said. "And it is no accident that one of our first trips as a family is here to China." Obama made her remarks while visiting a school in Beijing, with the Chinese first

Michelle Obama arrived in China on Thursday for a weeklong visit that will steer clear of politics and instead focusing on education and community. [Snip] On Friday, she is to spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the wife of Chinese President Xi Jinping, something which diplomats hope will build bridges between the two countries. ´I think this is a very good opportunity to improve the China-U.S. relations, as the first lady can represent the soft side of diplomacy,´ said Wang Dong, a political scientist at Peking University´s School of International Studies. ´Michelle Obama herself has been accomplished in areas such as

Warm temperatures, colorful wildflowers. What´s not to like, about early signs of spring? Climate scientists at NASA say these early signs could be tied to global warming, and the consequences are troubling. 9NEWS talked to NASA scientist Dr. Compton Tucker at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. He said that on average, the last frost of the year is happening about five days earlier than it did just five decades ago. Tucker said his conclusions are drawn from a fleet of Earth-observing satellites that have been monitoring our planet for more than 40 years. That satellite data combined with
