A Charlie Brown Christmas

The other day while channel surfing, I came across "A Charlie Brown Christmas". By chance I happened to tune in right at the moment Charlie Brown yells out "does anybody know the true meaning of Christmas!?!?!"

Linus steps up and calmly answers "Sure, Charlie Brown. I do"...

"Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord..."

Does anybody think an animated Christmas special made today would dare quote (gasp) the Bible?

It got me thinking about all the attacks on any public displays or even the mention of Christmas by groups like the A.C.L.U. If you haven't been paying attention, the effort to remove all vestiges of religion has really been stepped up this year. Christmas has been targeted like no other time in our history by bureaucrats, educators and "civil rights" organizations. Personally, I think it is partly some childish sort of payback for reelecting Bush.

I don't doubt that should the ACLU succeed in removing all the military chaplains, swearing ins using a bible and painted over the Ten Commandments in the Supreme Court, they would eventually seek to have this sort of program banned from the public airways. Doubt it? Ask a Boy Scout.
