Atheists believe some first and second grade teachers at Terry Elementary stepped over the line separating church and state when those teachers sent home letters offering to take children to a production of "Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!" being staged at nearby Agape Church.
The church tells KARK it has canceled its December 14 production and has rescheduled two shows to be held on Saturday, December 15 instead.
The dust up started after a parent expressed her concern to the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers that her daughter might be singled out for ridicule if she opted not to attend the production.
