A church in Little Rock, Arkansas at the middle of a controversy regarding the play "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" has decided to remove itself from the issue.
Agape Church will not be offering the program for school matinees and will instead just have the public performances on the weekend.
The controversy began when some first and second grade teachers at Terry Elementary invited students to a performance of "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" at the church on Friday, December 14.
From there, a parent reached out to the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers (ASF) with concerns the production of "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" went against her religious beliefs. The ASF then mounted a campaign to have the field trip called off.
