Political correctness strikes again! The state this takes place in is good ol’ Alabama…the school principal, Lydia Davenport has banned the word ‘EASTER‘ at the school this year…she says; ” “Kids love the bunny, and we just make sure we don’t say ‘the Easter bunny’ so that we don’t infringe on the rights of others, because people relate the Easter bunny to religion.” blah blah blah and all that jazz!

You can read more about this here, here and here. – This is via WE:

Here comes Peter Cottontail, but he’s not hopping down the bunny trail because Easter’s on it’s way. At least not at Heritage Elementary School in Madison, Alabama.

Heritage principal Lydia Davenport said “We had in the past a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at the school.”

So, because of questioning, there will be no Easter. And, almost, no eggs.

There will still be a bunny. Just not an Easter bunny.

The original plan had been for teachers to host an Easter egg-themed quiz game where students would buzz in to answer the questions using egg buzzers. The would also be able to search for answers hidden in Easter eggs.

At first the school announced the quiz game would continue but with different shapes, not eggs.

One parent told the local television station, ““I don’t get upset about too many things, but this upsets me. Even non-believers enjoy a good egg hunt. Kids need to enjoy being kids.”

Watch this report below…it’s a good one:

Phil Schimdt, a Madison City School Board member told Fox News “The prinicipal was trying to be extremely cautious about having anything religious in the school – probably more cautious than she needed to be. In this world of schools, it’s probably better to be cautious than reckless. But at the same time you’ve got to use good judgment about it.”

Davenport indicated that the school’s intent was to make sure that students from diverse backgrounds still feel comfortable. She noted that one kindergarten class in the school has students from six different religious backgrounds.

Ironically, eggs, bunnies and even the word Easter do not necessarily have their origins in Christianity. Eggs and bunnies represent spring.

In most European languages, the name for Easter is traced from the Latin Pascha, which comes from the Hebrew name for “Passover.” Although some scholars believe that the word comes from the Anglo-Saxon goddess Eostre who had been celebrated in April from ancient times and during the Middle Ages. [Religion News]

In a world where Christmas break is now Winter Break and even Santa Claus is banned in some schools, the next obvious victim of political correctness was the Easter Bunny.

Hope you and yours all have a ‘Happy Easter, Easter, Easter‘!

  2. And here’s another school that’s gone berserk in a different way…political correctness once again. – Check this out and see if this doesn’t frost your flakes too!

    http://radio.foxnews.com/todds.....eball.html

    And then same people, including whining parents…complain about our kids being too fat. – Geesh…what’s their first clue!

    My oh my friends…how did we ever survive? Now it’s called bullying if it’s competition and you aren’t the winner…or something like that.

    I’ve had my fill. ~ Glad our kids are grown.

  5. ‘Eggs and bunnies represent spring.’
    Fertility of spring.

    bunnies = prolific breeders
    eggs= hatching

    • Since liberals all seem to gravitate towards homosexuality, I suppose for them it means more buggering. After all, they support it, condone it and even want to pass laws to protect the queers. Apparently there is lots of fudge packing in the ranks of the democrats.

  10. Don’t expect a liar/politician to have anything to say.

    Pagan rituals are not to be confused with any God fearing religion.

    Easter is what it is.

    • I guess since people just remained silent about all of this type of thing that’s been swirling around them for years and years now…seems people have had their fill and are now fighting back on many issues like this time and again recently. – Plus, we do have different tools now to use to get the message out to others to join that fight…and it sure isn’t the msm, the msm usually doesn’t catch up with a lot of this until a day or more later. We have the internet now…thanks to algore.

      Just tossing out a few thoughts on the matter. ~

      Btw Edtudo…Happy EASTER, EASTER, EASTER!

  14. Not really a big deal since little black children don’t know about the Easter bunny… they sure as hell know about the crack dealer and mom is teaching them about government handouts from Uncle Obummer.

    Yeah that was a tad racist but I’m totally fed up with lazy worthless people, PC, and this socialist fraud occupying the White House.

    A NH School District Bans (Foam!) Dodge Ball

    Windham school officials drop dodgeball

    By Alex Lippa | March 27, 2013

    Dodgeball has been banned in Windham schools, due to concerns about violence and bullying.

    The School Board voted, 4-1, last week to remove dodgeball and nine other “human target” activities from the district’s curriculum. The vote was taken after a committee of physical education teachers studied the issue, then recommended eliminating the games.

    “We spend a lot of time making sure our kids are violence free,” Windham superintendent Dr. Henry LaBranche said. “Here we have games where we use children as targets. That seems to be counter to what we are trying to accomplish with our anti-bullying campaign.” …

    Does this mean they are also going to ban Tag and Duck, Duck, Goose? (It turns out we were right to suspect this.)

        • Believe it or not…I read about that story about two months ago…I think on the UKDaily or something like that. Anyway, they had pictures, the story…but not how he was going to get his cat out of there, he as worried as heck about it etc. So…this is a happy ending indeed!

          Btw…the story I read back then stated they aren’t even allowed to have a cat…dogs okay, but now cats are supposed to be there blah blah blah. You get the drift.
