PAINTSVILLE, Ky. — Audience members at a Kentucky school's performance of "A Charlie Brown Christmas" recited a Bible passage that school officials deleted from the play.

W.R. Castle Elementary School Principal Jeff Cochran tells the Lexington Herald-Leader that some people attending Thursday's performance recited lines from the play in which the character Linus quotes from the Gospel of Luke.

Cochran said all Biblical references were removed from the play after a Dec. 11 message from Superintendent Thomas Salyer.

Salyer told the newspaper Tuesday that Christmas programs across the district were being reviewed for possible modifications of religious references after receiving a complaint.
