The Passion of the Easter Bunny

The Beating of the Easter BunnyIn Pennsylvania, a church trying to teach about Jesus' crucifixion performed an Easter show with actors whipping the Easter bunny and breaking eggs. To quote this Newsday article, "People who attended Saturday's show at Glassport's memorial stadium quoted performers as saying, "There is no Easter bunny," and described the show as being a demonstration of how Jesus was crucified".

What exactly is so Christ-like about beating the snot out of a furry rodent? I understand Christians wanting to preach about the true meaning of Easter, but please, leave the poor Easter Bunny out of it. He's harmless and the kids love him.

James knows the Easter Bunny is coming on Sunday morning and he's excited about the chocolates he gets to find, if Booner doesn't find them first, that it. If James was at this church he'd have been scarred for life. Watching the Easter Bunny getting whipped and hearing actors exclaim "There is no Easter bunny" would have guaranteed him decades of therapy.
