The Passion of the Easter Bunny
I laughed when I saw this in Late Breaking News, but its a real story. This stage production featured a scene where the Easter Bunny gets whipped and his eggs are smashed. Some children cried, but unlike Mel Gibson's production, nobody died.

2. Of course, it's an Assemblies of God church
I visited one once. The congregants spoke in tongues and it was altogether a strange service.

This sounds like something off of Landover Baptist.

5. I believe that's Ayatollah General John Asscraft's denomination.
He always seems like he's speaking in tongues to me.

3. Disturbing!
<<Melissa Salzmann, who took her 4-year-old son J.T., said the program was inappropriate for young children. He was crying and asking me why the bunny was being whipped, Salzmann said.>>

<<Performers broke eggs meant for an Easter egg hunt and also portrayed a drunken man and a self-mutilating woman, said Jennifer Norelli-Burke, another parent who saw the show in Glassport, southeast of Pittsburgh.>>

He was crying and asking me why the bunny was being whipped, Salzmann said.

These people are crackpots. Plain and simple.
