RABBIT STEW, COMIN' UP!


In the atheist’s continuing war on Christianity, two more blows were struck in the name of the alleged mandate of “separation of church and state” in our Constitution.




Side note-no one has claimed my standing one million dollar reward for pointing me to where the Constitution says that.

The first battleground is in the Pacific northwest, where school officials in Seattle are waging a war against the evils of Easter and it’s eggs.

Jessica, 16, sophomore at a local private high school , told KIRO Radio’s Dori Monson Show that a week before spring break, the students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a public school, which she would like to remain nameless.

 “At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that,” Jessica said.

She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about “their abstract behavior rules.”

“I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay,” Jessica explained. “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”

Funny, in their haste to save children from the horrors of the Easter egg these “educators” have laid one of their own.

 Who wants to tell the geniuses in Seattle that their "Spring Spheres" are actually "Spring ovoids"?

 

The second combat zone is across the country in Delaware, where the Indian River School District’s concern over issues of religious expression in the schools — a matter discussed and debated for the past three years — reached new heights this week when officials mandated on Tuesday that no school in the district can host or celebrate the Easter holiday with egg hunts, candy or the Easter Bunny, or his ilk.

 Apparently, this image is too Christian even for atheists!

 

 

The recommendation was made at the suggestion of the district’s administrative superintendent, Susan Bunting, on strong advice from attorney Jason Gosselin, in an attempt to bring the district’s policy on religion “more in line with the U.S. Constitution” after two Jewish families filed suit claiming the district had pursued pro-Christian policies.

The recommendation, with the ambition to avoid offending non-Christians, resulted in mixed opinions among board members.

The religion policy posted on the school district’s Web site, which states that the district does: “Permit the use of religious symbols such as a cross, menorah, star and crescent, Star of David, crèche, symbols of Native American religions, or other symbols that are a part of a religious holiday (including, but not limited to Christmas, Easter, Passover, Hanukkah, St. Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving and Halloween) as a teaching aid or resource, provided such symbols are displayed as an example of the cultural and religious heritage of the holiday and are temporary in nature.”

However, it was suggested at the board meeting Tuesday that Easter is the holiest day for Christians — and exclusively a Christian holiday. At Christmastime, other traditions, religions and events are celebrated, while Easter is of solely Christian faith.

Interestingly enough, the Passover holiday is prominently mentioned on the school district’s site.

I guess if there was a clause about the separation of church and state in the Constitution (and there is NOT), it would not apply to Judaism.

Hopefully, parents in Selbyville, Delaware, will start voting with their wallets. Stop giving money to the school. Enroll your children in activities that are outside of the school.

 
Let the school board know how you feel and what you are doing.
 
The school board was split on this, but bowed to the only two idiots making any noise. 

Make some noise of your own and shut those whining maggots up!

And for God’s sake, make sure those kids have black jelly beans! You can never have enough Brach’s black jelly beans!

  1. And yet, atheism isn't a religion. How disingenuous.

  2. I read in a blog that the only way to combat liberals and their social justice (read socialism) is to do it at the grassroots level, which is how they did it in the first place. This person suggested that if you want Christian values in your schools to put candidates in the school board elections and local mayoral races. Most people don't even know who runs for these positions. Sometimes there isn't even opposition in these races. Then stand firm when the Libs start bucking the policy decisions. Get Conservatives to come out in droves and support the curriculum that they want for their kids. The only way to make a change is at the local grassroots level. Now, is this going to happen in the cities in a Hardcore Blue State? No. But, other places have a really good shot at taking back their communities. All it takes is A Few Good Men and Women making the decision to get involved and rallying the support of their neighbors. Alinsky Works For Us Now.

      Sadly, Robin, the problem is that most people will not get involved.

      Back in the eighteenth century, Edmund Burke said "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

      It is far easier for good people to do nothing than to get involved.

      And so they do.

  3. Loved the picture of the "Killer Bunny"! It doesn't get much more "Easter" than that, Tim. "I soiled my armor I was so scared!"

    >> . . . “She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat ‘spring spheres.’ I couldn’t call them Easter eggs.”

    Interestingly, there is a good number of Christians who would even balk at the term "Easter Eggs", feeling that those things are merely watering-down the true significance of the Day with secular/pagan symbols. And yet even "Easter Eggs" are now TOO "Christian" to even be mentioned in school!

    And I TOTALLY AGREE with you about the black jelly beans, man! Love 'em; gotta have 'em!

    1. Stephen-

      I would imagine that the Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs have their origins in springtime celebrations rather than being connected to the Resurrection.

      However, I have it on good authority that there were black jelly beans present at the Last Supper.

      If you look at the DaVinci painting, there's a dish of them in the far left corner of the table.
