A Separate Legal Issue About That Church Putting on A Charlie Brown Christmas

There’s been a big controversy lately because an atheist parent is upset over the fact that Terry Elementary School in Little Rock, Arkansas wants to take students on a field trip to see A Charlie Brown Christmas at a local church. You can read more about the story here.

But Huffington Post commenter barbara960 noticed a completely separate issue when looking at the Peanuts website: The church shouldn’t be performing the play in the first place.

So how did Agape Church get the legal rights to perform this play? Or did they think that, because they were Christians, they would be able to get away with it?

I’ve asked the church to answer that question. I’ll let you know if I hear back.
