Michigan Muslims Upset Over Christian Church’s Easter Egg Hunt

Remember, liberals say that we need to be “tolerant” of Muslims in the U.S. because, gosh darn it, they are Americans just like you and me. While you are remembering that, Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan are trying to oppress a local Christian Church because it is hosting an Easter egg hunt. Proof that Muslims are just as American and tolerant as you and me.

As it happens, Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church sent a bunch of fliers about their secular Easter egg hunt to a local school district as an out reach effort into the community. The church says that the event is just a community event and does not feature any religious content.

The flier features images of Easter eggs and an Easter bunny. Naturally Muslims in Dearborn are furious and want to behead someone over the matter. OK, maybe just figuratively–for now–as they want to know who in the school district allowed the Church’s flier to be handed out to kids.

They will wait until they get in charge to begin the literal beheadings, of course.

Anyway, the Muslims claim that handing out the fliers is some sort of violation of Church and State–says people who want their church to become the state.

“It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni said. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed to mix with schools.’”

I’ll guarantee Majed Moughni is a liar and that his son said no such thing.

The church, though, denies that there could possibly be any church-state issue.

“Part of our ministry in Dearborn is to invite the community to let them know we’re here,” Pastor Neeta Nichols said. “We’re offering various kinds of programming, fun opportunities, so what we can be engaged with the community.”

This is obviously no violation of church and state policies. But it is an example of the hate and intolerance of Muslims.

By the way, Mr. Moughni, it is freedom OF religion, not freedom from it.

    We’ve lost Dearbornistan.

    Evacuate the christians, put a wall around it to keep the liberals and muslims inside.

    In 25 years we can unlock the gate and see who’s left. (pun intended)

    • jim_m

      Technically, we should wall off everything in the metro Detroit area.

      • warnertoddhuston

        Wall off Detroit? Why spend so much time walling of piles of rubble?

    • Commander_Chico

      I know a hot Arab girl there, don’t wall it off until I get there to bang her.

  • 914

    F them! No tolerance for these lowlifes.

  • Walter_Cronanty

    Yes, we must have more tolerance – like Muslims in Pakistan:

    LAHORE — A Pakistani man sentenced to death for blasphemy appealed against his conviction on Tuesday, saying the charges were trumped up to speed the eviction of minority Christians from their land.
    Sawan Masih was convicted last week of insulting the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during a conversation with a Muslim friend in the Joseph Colony neighborhood of Lahore in March last year…More than 3,000 Muslims rampaged through Joseph Colony, torching some 100 Christian homes in Pakistan’s second-largest city, after the allegations against Masih emerged.

    If the muslims don’t like our traditions, then they know where the door is to go home…..no more bending over backwards for this moronic religion. You came to our country, so respect our traditions…If you don’t like it, keep it to yourself, no one cares what you have to say about it….

      Muslims are SOP sons of pigs, disgusting. Double dog dare them to say one word to Real American Christians. Those ugly rag heads can be done away by feeding them to the Alligators here in Florida, haha. BTW whose the wiser? There is a way, no tolerance I say.

  • GarandFan

    Typical “victimology”.

    • jim_m

      Yep. The left cannot tolerate beliefs that are different from their own so they demand that all evidence of the existence of such beliefs be expunged from the public view.

      The left is all about tolerance as long as you agree with everything they do they will tolerate you.

  • Commander_Chico

    Since Warner has called for Islam to be outlawed, his complaints about freedom of religion are ridiculous.

    • Sky__Captain

      I do not see where “Warner has called to Islam to be banned” in his post.

      Chico, would you care to withdraw your little attempt at derailing the discussion, or will you continue to support the intolerance and hate of Muslims?

      • Commander_Chico

        He said it here: http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/huston/060219

        A lot of Christians are against the Easter Bunny, too. It is derived from pagan fertility rituals (“fuck like rabbits”)

        ChristiaNet.com, a large Christian portal with eight million monthly page loads, recently asked, “Should Christians participate in the Easter Bunny?” President of ChristiaNet, Bill Cooper, stated, “Explaining the real meaning of holidays to children is important.”

        Out of 1,300 people surveyed, 46% did not believe that Christians should include the Easter Bunnyin their celebrations. One survey taker said, “The Easter Bunny did not die for my sins or the sins of the world; only Jesus Christ, his blood and his Holy power.” Some people spoke of the Pagan influence on the holiday as well, “The Easter Bunny is a Pagan belief and has no place in Christianity.” Another poller stated their reason as, “If you tell your children that there is an Easter Bunny and a Santa Claus, then they find out that they are not real and you attempt to tell them about Jesus, and they can’t see Him either, they won’t believe He exists.”

        • jim_m

          Wow, Chico. You’re really reaching on that one. WTH writes an article that is asking the question of whether or not islam should be made illegal and the piece is obviously deliberately provocative in its purpose. It is also obvious that he speaks specifically about radical islam and the violence it advocates.

          So once again we see you are a liar.

          And you also lie when you say “A lot of Christians are against the Easter Bunny”. I suppose that empirically, you might say that there are “a lot” if these people number in the hundreds but the reality in that compared to the number of people who profess to be Christians these people are a vanishingly small minority. Even in conservative evangelical circles these people are a minority.

          • Commander_Chico

            You know, Jim, sophistry is not an effective debating technique.

            Warner poses the question and answers it. The concluding words are: “Unfortunately, it is just that simple.”

            Daniel Pipes read it clearly: http://www.meforum.org/pipes/4868/ban-islam

            Christians have complained about the Easter Bunny in schools: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1298&dat=19861114&id=UOdLAAAAIBAJ&sjid=F4wDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6890,2589430

            Passing out flyers in school inviting kids to a church is prosthelytizing.

          • jim_m

            Incorrect. Passing out flyers invting kids to a church for a non-religious function is not proselytizing. My Cub Scouts group met a church, promoting its activities was not promoting the church. Once again in your rush to hate Christianity you over state the case.

            I did not say that Christians have not complained, I said that they were a small minority and it should be noted that they have been roundly ignored in their complaints. Your linked story is about removing books that are about witchcraft and the devil not Easter. While there is a brief mention of a couple that is against Santa and the Easter Bunny at the top of the article the vast majority of the article is about lawsuit over allegedly occult books. So you once again misrepresent the issues.

            Do you intend to present ANYTHING honestly? Or is it just that you cannot? Funny that you claim that sophistry is not an effective debating technique when it seems that it is your only technique.

            I also agree with Pipes that banning islam is not the answer, however banning agitation to violence is appropriate and I think the Warner’s comparison to the KKK was apt. Ban the violent expression of twisted religious ideas not the religion itself.

          • Brucehenry

            “Islam has become the KKK of the 21st Century.The sooner we awake to this truth and take steps to ban the religion or somehow curtail its pernicious influence the better. The West is going to have to place severe restrictions on Islamic Mosques and public displays of Islam. Further, devout Muslims should not be allowed to hold public office (though it certainly should not become a racial issue – sins of the father should not be visited on the sons.)”

            That’s a direct quote from the linked article. Not just “asking the question.” Who is the liar?

          • jim_m

            He also points out that the KKK claimed Christianity as the basis for their beliefs. Are you claiming that at any time there were people demanding the banning of Christianity in order to eradicate the KKK?

            Please show me where that is the case or where Warner says that this was what he was suggesting. The obvious analogy is that like the KKK, radical islam should be banned in order to suppress it.

          • Brucehenry

            No, silly, that’s MY point. No one suggested banning Christianity because extremists attempted to hijack it to advance their ugly unAmerican idiology. Yet Warner and many others have called for “Islam” — not “radical Islam” as The Voices insist has been added to Warner’s paragraph, invisibly to other readers — to be banned.

            Warner, in his 2006 article, isn’t “suggesting” anything. He is flat out calling for the banning of Islam or the taking of steps to “ban its pernicious influence.” He doesn’t qualify the noun “Islam” with the adjective “radical.” At least not in the quoted paragraph.

            And even if he did, we can’t ban “radical” Islam under our Constitution, Jim. Who would decide what defines “radicalism”? A government body? Would that same government body decide someday that an “extremist” Catholic group should be banned or its religious rites banned? Would it declare, or could it declare, hypothetically, that Zionism should be prohibited because it “foments hatred” or “creates enmity between communities”?

            The KKK (or the Communist party) were never banned outright. Certain practices in which the KKK had engaged, such as wearing masks in public or the burning of crosses on someone else’s property, were banned, and those things could not reasonably be seen as religious rites or ordinary political expression.

          • jim_m

            Did I make any representation that I thought islam should be banned or that I in any way thought that it could be done so Constitutionally? No I did not.

            I believe that like the KKK there could be found specific activities that could be made illegal and used to suppress radical islam.

            Again, I believe that the tone of WTH’s article is deliberately provocative and I agree that banning islam is not possible and ultimately, undesirable as it would simply fuel the radicals.

          • Brucehenry

            You seemed to be defending it, and at first you denied he had specifically advocated for a ban, as he clearly did. You claimed he was just “asking the question” until I pointed out the quote where he goes way beyond that.

            Nearly ALL of Warner’s articles are “deliberately provocative” but that doesn’t mean they aren’t also sincere advocacy.

            Certain activities inherent in “radical” Islam are ALREADY illegal in the US and are currently being prosecuted, such as the murder of apostates and honor killings. Murder is already illegal. Sometimes old anti-Klan statutes are dusted off, such as the prohibition on masks in public, although this can be problematic in cases involving hijab.

            EDIT: A ban is undesirable NOT ONLY because it wouild fuel the radicals but because it is blatantly unconstitutional. As the Founders knew, the government should not be in the business of evaluating the merits of any religion’s tenets.

  • JWH

    A public school distributes a flier advertising a church’s event. A Muslim, concerned by this distribution, calls the principal and the local newspaper to complain. Clearly, the jihad is upon us.

    • jim_m

      An intolerant Muslim, concerned by this distribution, and determined to stamp out all cultures save his own calls the principal and the local newspaper to complain demand the suppression of all religions and cultures except islam.

    This isn’t an EASTER egg hunt. The flyer has nothing about Easter in it. It is simply an egg hunt, egg roll, etc. The problem is that it is at a CHURCH!

    If you want your egg hunt, you can keep your egg hunt, period.
