Now wait a minute, shouldn't it be the Christians that are offended by the Easter Bunny?

I'm not saying that the Easter Bunny is offensive to Christians, but rather that it doesn't really represent the religious meaning of Easter, but it seems that these symbols have come to represent important religious events in the eyes of non-Christians.

St. Paul City Office Boots Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny has been sent packing at St. Paul City Hall.

A toy rabbit, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words "Happy Easter" were removed from the lobby of the City Council offices, because of concerns they might offend non-Christians.

A council secretary had put up the decorations. They were not bought with city money.

St. Paul's human rights director, Tyrone Terrill, asked that the decorations be removed, saying they could be offensive to non-Christians.

But City Council member Dave Thune says removing the decorations went too far, and he wonders why they can't celebrate spring with "bunnies and fake grass."

  1. I never told you that I loved this post. The Easter Bunny offends me - how dare someone call it a "Christian" symbol. That's insulting.


And what do you think?
