    Church's Easter card offensive to some - Video on msnbc.com

    It seems that there is a Christian church who is sending out Easter cards showing a dead rabbit with Easter candy strewn all around it, and the card simply states "Bunnies stay dead, Jesus didn't".

    Believe it or not, this was actually sent out by a REAL pastor of a REAL Christian church.

    Would you want your children to see a dead Easter bunny on the cards sent by your church?

    You know, I'd kinda expect behavior like this from some other kind of group, but certainly not a Christian church which is supposed to be promoting positive values.

    For as much as Christians like to tell me that they do, based on this pastor's actions, I'd say it's not always true.

    Fine by me. I don't particularly like the Easter bunny or Santa being more popular with Christian children than Christ. To me, it's another example of the Churches failure to impart it's values to it's flock.

    Maybe if we started a rumor that Santa killed the Easter bunny and ate him, the Church could be rid of both of them.

    Actually, it was the Church's mixing of pagan worship and what they took from Jerusalem and calling it Christianity that started this whole thing in the first place.

    Christmas trees, Yule logs, bunnies, eggs, sunrise service on the first Easter after the spring solstice just to name a few.

    OR. We could bleat that Santa Clawz flew down during the Great Flood and rescued the only bunny that was left behind and maid it hiS patRon Saint to carry oUt hIS work when the sun(son) came back during passover ( the equator).
    it's all relative, with no theory.
