What we call the War Against Christmas, which has now morphed into a War Against Easter, is really a part of the War Against Western Civilization, and the War Against The American Nation. Christianity is part of that, so like a thousand other symbols and traditions, it has to go.
Not only go, but be forgotten, if possible. And of course, part of the attack is blasphemous, and part of it is just silly, because the War On Easter includes attacking…the Easter Bunny.
['Easter' Bunny Gives Way To 'Spring' Bunny: Local Mall Goes P.C. For Religious Holiday, Dallas-Fort Worth nbc5i.com] Peter Brimelow, Easter 2005]
"William Rearick, Schools Superintendent of the Tiverton Public Schools in Rhode Island [email him], has banned the Easter Bunny from appearing at a fundraising event tomorrow at the Tiverton Middle School. He has also banned the word 'Easter' from all school events. He told the Providence Journal that during the last year and a half, he has become 'more aware of folks who don't have a Christian background.' Taking the place of the Easter Bunny will be Peter Rabbit; children will be able to get their picture taken with him." [Catholic League For Religious And Civil Rights, Easter 2007]
Of course, attacking the Easter Bunny isn't about a little chocolate rabbit. It's about post-America.
Even if you're not a churchgoer, Easter is a link with the past, with hundreds of years of settlement in America and with two thousand years of Christian civilization. Even if you were a moderately fierce atheist, like the late Oriana Fallaci, you couldn't help being angry at being told it's not Easter anymore because we don't want to offend Hindus and Muslims—who, when they're at home, have no problem persecuting Christians.
America is a Christian nation. The objections you hear when anyone says that in public are caused by the fact that most people don't know what is meant by the word "nation." The United States is country with a constitution and a First Amendment. The American people is a nation, a group of people with common ancestors and a common history.
If people are offended by any mention of your religion, and the religion of your ancestors, then maybe it's time you got offended.
If you are a Christian, I'd like to share with you a song called He's Alive by Don Francisco, a Christian songwriter. Francisco's website is here. You can here Francisco sing the song by clicking here, [MP3] I first heard this performed by Dolly Parton, [video] but the singer of the song is meant to be St. Peter. It's a very powerful song, and says a lot about what Easter is about, even for those of you who may not actually believe.
Here is our collection Easter Links.
(Easter is a movable feast, but the speech Peter was talking about is still worth reading.)

And finally, the most serious thing we've published about Easter, and about the only thing we've published worthy of being read in Church on Easter Sunday, is this:
