War on Easter? Schools, cities planning another round of ‘Spring egg hunts’

Mar 21, 2013 by

MUSKEGON, Mich. – In our increasingly politically-correct society, Christmas isn’t the only holiday too hot to handle for school districts. Easter, another holiday rooted in Christian faith, is now being marginalized by governmental entities.

School districts and cities across America are holding “Spring egg hunts” and similar events, frequently omitting the word “Easter” from calendars and public announcements. Consider these:

There are many, many more examples.

Does it matter that they’re detaching “Easter” from “egg hunts”? After all, the original significance of the day has nothing to do with bunnies, candy or hunting painted eggs.

It does, because “culturally sensitive” bureaucrats are further secularizing America by wiping Christian names off traditional community events.

Like Christmas, Easter has become increasingly commercialized. But by continuing to embrace the Christian rooting, we’re remembering the real reason for the holidays. As secular progressives remove the meaning, they’re becoming nothing more than Hallmark holidays and we’re becoming an increasingly ungrounded society.
