First there were the attacks on Santa Claus and Christmas and now it’s the Easter Bunny.
A display featuring a toy Easter bunny, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words ‘Happy Easter” was removed from the lobby of City Hall this week by the city’s human rights director because he said a citizen had complained and he was afraid it might offend non-Christians.
The decorations hadn’t been purchased with tax dollars. They were donated by a city council secretary.
One city council member said it had “gone too far. We can’t celebrate spring with bunnies and fake grass?”
But the council president, Kathy Lantry said the issue was about separation of church and state and that “as government, we have a different responsibility about advancing the cause of religion which we are not going to do”.
“I absolutely wonder how colored eggs and bunnies and chickens are Christian”, one councilman said. 3-24-06
