Over the Easter weekend came the stories of the politically correct loons removing the word “Easter” from such subversive, oppressive and noninclusive titles as “Easter egg roll,” “Easter egg hunt” and, horrors upon horrors, “Easter bunny.” They claimed that they did it to respect the views of everyone — everyone, that is, except Christians.
This piggybacks nicely with the rebadging of the Christmas tree as the “holiday tree.”
There were also reports of people looking at Good Friday as a great way to get a three-day weekend. And this follows what's now the tradition of observing St. Patrick's Day as another fine day to get cross-eyed drunk.
The early church gets ripped for taking pagan holidays and Christianizing them. Today, the “PC” bunch and the general degeneracy of the culture take Christian holidays and paganize them.
They must be so proud.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
