Here we go again! The politically correct, diversity overload, let's cater to the single complainer and ignore the majority people have struck again. This time it involves the annual Easter egg hunt at an Alabama elementary school. Apparently, the principal has decided that the word Easter may be offensive to some people... so out it goes... and the Easter egg hunt with it!
First, let's state the obvious. Easter, like Christmas, is a Christian religious holiday. Yes, you are probably thinking, "Duh," but for some people the meaning of Christmas and Easter is somehow elusive. Plus, as I've learned over the years, there's no such thing as common sense when it comes to the left wing, politically correct agenda.
As reported by WHNT News, children at Heritage Elementary School in Madison, Alabama will not be having an Easter egg hunt this year, because the egg hunt is associated with Easter, and Easter may be offensive to some people. Are you kidding me? Here's the story:
This is unreal. The principal, Lydia Davenport, says that she doesn't want to offend anyone. Her entire course of action is offensive! You can have a bunny, but you can't call it an Easter bunny. Hello! This is Easter time. Of course it's an Easter bunny.
One Heritage parent wrote in an email response:
“I don’t get upset about too many things, but this upsets me. What is this world coming to? I am a Christian and proud to announce it. But even non-believers enjoy a good egg hunt. Kids need to enjoy being kids.”
“We had in the past,” explains principal Lydia Davenport, “a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at school, so we’re just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody’s differences.”
My kids are off from school tomorrow, because it's Good Friday. It's not some after Spring Break break. It's part of Easter weekend, and this is America... where Christian religious holidays are celebrated.
The idea that the shape of the containers needs to be changed because that could remind people of the Easter bunny which would then remind them of Easter which would then offend them in some way is crazy. What's happening to this country???
Upset? Please let Lydia Davenport at Heritage Elementary School know how you feel.
