So long, Easter Bunny.
A toy rabbit decorating the entrance of the St. Paul City Council offices went hop-hop-hoppin' on down the bunny trail Wednesday after the city's human rights director said non-Christians might be offended by it.
This is politcal correctness at its silliest. We have reached the zenith (or possibly the nadir, depending on how you view it) of the crazy tolerance movement.
The decorations — including the stuffed rabbit, Easter eggs and a handcrafted sign saying "Happy Easter," but nothing depicting the biblical account of Christ's death and resurrection — were put up this week in the office of the City Council by a council secretary.That's right - NOTHING about the real meaning of Easter. Can any rational non-Christian really get tied in knots because of a bunny rabbit and colored eggs? If so, can we continue to call that person rational?
Plus, as David Taylor points out, the irony in this story is wonderful: It is reported in the ST. PAUL Pioneer Press, which is housed in ST. PAUL, Minnesota and the event happened at the ST. PAUL city council offices. Are you saying that having a public city named after the most important New Testament character after Jesus doesn't offend these same non-believers? If not, I question their consistency and their true agenda!
