Easter Bunny Whipped At Church Show - Children Cry
<snip>

A church trying to teach about the crucifixion of Jesus performed an Easter show with actors whipping the Easter bunny and breaking eggs, upsetting several parents and young children.

People who attended Saturdays performance at Glassports memorial stadium quoted performers as saying, There is no Easter bunny, and described the show as being a demonstration of how Jesus was crucified.

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.

Patty Bickerton, the youth minister at Glassport Assembly of God, said the performance wasnt meant to be offensive. Bickerton portrayed the Easter rabbit and said she tried to act with a tone of irreverence.

Beating rabbits. How lovely.

Maybe at Christmas they can hire a department store Santa Claus and beat the shit out him too.

5. Heh...I was just reading about this...
over on the Freepers' site. Yes, I lurk and post there quite often. It makes me feel dirty whenever I go there, but I still am curious as to what the far-right thinks on certain issues.

11. Maybe somebody should let them know.
Jesus's death was a bad thing.

12. Vile... but religion is interesting too...
See, they take pagan symbols and twist them to their cause.

Then they go around saying pagans and their rituals are bad...

Can somebody explain their hypocrisy? Without pagans, they'd have nothing to exploit the consumers with.
