KILLEEN, Texas – Texas attorney general is criticizing a school district’s decision to remove a portion of a poster, a bible verse recited by Linus in the movie “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement that the so-called Merry Christmas law passed in 2013 means that schools cannot “silence is a biblical reference to the Christmas.”
He said Thursday that the decision of the officials in Killeen, north of Austin, is an “attack on religious freedom.”

A staffer had placed the poster on a school door. It shows Linus and the line of the gospel of Luke: “unto you is born this day in the city of David a saviour.”
