Lindale, TX (KTBB) —
The 5th grade musical “In God We Trust” will be presented tonight in Lindale in its original form.
That’s after a parental complaint prompted the Freedom from Religion Foundation to challenge plans to hold the play last week at E.J. Moss Intermediate School.
The Lindale ISD instead allowed a modified form of the play to be presented last week.
But, local pastor Tom Buck rented the Lindale ISD Performing Arts Center so the religion-themed musical could be shown intact tonight. According to a news release from Buck, support for tonight’s performance has been “overwhelming,” with positive response from all over East Texas.
Buck notes that organizers “have had to secure an overflow area that will carry a live feed of the program.”
The event is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., Wednesday night.
