Happy EASTER Everyone!

Easter Bunny

The Political Grapevine

Palm Beach, Florida made headlines when city officials renamed all Christmas trees "holiday trees" last December. Now, some shopping malls in the city have decided to get rid of the Easter bunny. They're changing the name of Easter egg hunts to just plain "egg hunts" which will be presided over not by the Easter bunny, but by a "garden bunny."

They've lost their minds. That, and the continuing assault against Christianity has gone way over the top.

I'm not the least bit religious, and I tend to hold religious beliefs against people when I judge their intelligence. But there's something sinister about how the Christian religion is singled out for abuse. It's Easter, for chrissakes...and it's Christmas. Yes, those holidays may have their roots in a religion, but they've long ago been secularized in this country (I don't know of any Kris Kringle or egg dispensing rabbits in the bible, do you?). There is no need to change the freaking names of the holidays.

The next thing we know, we'll be referring to devil's food cake as "ethically disadvantaged pseudo-nutrition product". But it'll be lucky. By comparison, angel food cake will be demonized and ridiculed beyond belief.

Jeff.

Please may I borrow your Easter bunny? I'll vote Republican or something, if you say "Yes". I am that shallow and easily bought.... :)
