Why is the Easter Bunny being attacked in an Alabama elementary school? Cant say easter bunny?

Heritage Elementary school banned Easter. The word Easter is banned in several schools. Why is the easter bunny a bad thing?

It's part of that ridiculous thing called political correctness. Just like a 'spring egg hunt', instead of 'Easter egg hunt'.

I'm an atheist and I would never even consider getting rid of the Easter bunny. It's a symbol for the kids. Jeez

Separation of church and state is to prevent government getting into our religion/churches, not the other way around. It also is not part of our Constitution but words in a letter.

I think you mean, church/religion getting into government

The Easter Bunny is pagan.

Kids don't know that. You can't say, " Well kids you can't believe in a giant bunny anymore because it's Pagan!". Then they just stare and all they here is "No candy"

PC runs amok. A Bunny that lays candy eggs has nothing to do with Christianity anyway. The name Easter the eggs and the Bunny all come from pagan religions.

Basically because in the matter of religious diversity it is better for schools to err on the side of caution.

A school official said that in the past some parents had complained about the use of religious holidays in the school, so the school decided to be as neutral as possible.

Everyone of course wants to blame the big bad atheists, but in many of these cases country-wide, the complaints have been brought by Jehovah's Witnesses, who don't celebrate the traditional holidays due to their pagan roots.

There are no complaints from Jehovah's Witnesses. They just keep their children home. They do not make a habit of stirring up trouble.

I like the words you used. Pagan traditions and there roots. That's why Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate these holidays. If it did not originate in the Bible it is not observed. Thanks for being knowledgeable about their beliefs. Most people don't know anything about them so they make up something or repeat something they heard. Never checking to see if it is true or not.

There was an issue with complaints from JWs in the school district I attended school as a child- and it was nowhere near the only one.

I come from a family of educators- I am familiar with the issue.

In fact- Jehovah's Witnesses have been involved in many of the landmark court cases of our modern times.

Just between 1938 and 1946, they brought 23 separate First Amendment actions before the Supreme Court. It was due to one of these cases that SCOTUS ruled that it is unconstitutional to force a child to say the Pledge of Allegiance in schools- an action commonly blamed on atheists by fundamentalist Christians.

A relatively recent court case in Florida involved two teachers who were fired for refusing to participate in Christmas events at the school because they were Jehovah's Witnesses.

In fact, the JWs have a long and clear history of civil disobedience and court action.

They actually think the bunny has to do with religion? That's funny.

Actually the bunny and the eggs are fertility symbols. Those, along with the name Easter come from pagan religions they were infused into the Roman Religion so that pagans could join the so called Christian church without having to give up their pagan tradition so they are religious in their origin. Just not Christian.
Many "Christian" traditions do have their roots in pagan forms of worship.

Oh hold on if the word Easter is banned from that school. Where will all the kids go that might have the last name Easter?

That makes no sense, Easter comes from the pagan "feast of Ester" the goddess of fertility and the bunny represents that fertility. It's either religious extremists wanting to wipe out all traces of the relation to paganism, or its over active secularists wanting to remove religion from a spring celebration, being Alabama I would bet on it being religious extremists. But either way they need to chill out and just enjoy life :-/

Wrong on all counts. It was a decision made not to offend those who don't believe in God/Jesus since Easter is most celebrated by Christians who are celebrating the death and resurrection of our Savior. It really doesn't matter how the name Easter came about or who used it first. What does matter is Christ died for our sins and overcame death/evil when he resurrected and we too can be forgiven by believing He alone has saved us.

It is not politically correct, and then there is that lie about the unconstitutional separation of church and state.

Where in the Constitution does it say anything about separation of church and state? No where! It was part of a letter that was talking about keeping the state out if the church like no national religion. Nothing was said about keeping God out of the state. This phrase has been so twisted that people actually think its in our Constitution. Sad what they no longer teach in school. No wonder this country is embracing Socialism.
