It’s remarkable that Americans in 2016 are still wrestling with the text of the First Amendment, in particular the bit about the establishment of religion. Call it the war on Christmas if you like, but this seems like a losing battlefield on which the Killeen Independent School District has chosen to take a stand.

The Dallas Morning News reports that district officials banned an employee’s Christmas display, insisting that employees “can’t impose their personal beliefs on students.” The item that was somehow imposing Christianity on students? A home-made poster of Linus van Pelt from “A Charlie Brown Christmas” that was hung on clinic aide Dedra Shannon’s door.

When the matter was brought to his attention, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, in the words of Todd Starnes, “dropped a great big Yuletide truth bomb” on the district, citing both the First Amendment and the state’s 2013 “Merry Christmas Law.”

The school board met Tuesday night, and the religious nonprofit group Texas Values and attorney Jonathan M. Saenz documented some of the proceedings.

Trigger warning: here’s a photo of that poster that had to be taken down:

Veterans of school board meetings know that large turnouts and unanimous public support are no guarantee the district will change its position, so stay tuned.
