(KSLA) -- MINDEN, Louisiana -- A Christmas play will go on in Webster Parish, even if it mentions the name of Jesus. A nonprofit organization made the announcement hours after receiving complaints about the religious reference during a play at school earlier this week.
According to the Minden Junior Service League, some people who watched the play raised questions about the use of Jesus' name. As a result, according to a Facebook post, public schools will not be allowed to attend the play.
“Today, the Junior Service League of Minden fell victim to the politics of the public school system and the religious debate that is abundantly present in their path. After our first performance this morning, several in attendance felt it was necessary to report us for the mention of the reason for the season, Jesus," a statement posted on Facebook read.
