Easter Bunny Banned From Rhode Island School

The latest assault on the Easter Bunny has taken place in Rhode Island, where Tiverton Middle School has replaced him with "Peter Rabbit" because "Easter Bunny" sounds too Christian.

According to the school district's Superintendent William Rearick, anything that reminds people of Christianity at Easter time must be suppressed as part of "an attempt to be conscious of other people's backgrounds and traditions."

Totalitarian moonbats have the advantage when it comes to banning the Easter Bunny because he isn't taken seriously. As Bernard Healy, the Catholic Diocese of Providence, puts it:

As a Christian symbol, I would say [the Easter Bunny] is not one of those that I would go to the barricades to defend.

Maybe Healy is waiting until moonbats start banning crosses from chapels before he puts up resistance.

Unsurprisingly, the ACLU is pleased to see the Easter Bunny prohibited. Barks Steve Brown of the ACLU's Rhode Island affiliate:

Public schools should not be promoting Easter celebrations, and to the extent that the school districts try to avoid that problem they are to be commended.

Rhode Island State Rep. Richard Singleton calls suppression of the Easter Bunny "political correctness gone wild." At last it has pushed the poor rabbit to the breaking point, as can be seen in this video (on a tip from Pam).


First they came for the Easter Bunny…

What ever happened to the Ramadan Goat?

Of course the ACLU views Easter as a "problem". They are unapologetic for promoting Islam and attacking Christianity. As an athiest I am aghast at what they do...
