The Passion Of The Bunny

From the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:

Combining whips and the Easter Bunny was all part of sharing the gospel, members of a Glassport, Allegheny County, church said Wednesday.

But not everybody got the message.

The antics Saturday at Memorial Stadium riled some parents, who considered the program staged by the Glassport Assembly of God ill-suited for young children.

Performers declared, "There is no Easter Bunny" while smashing colored eggs and brandishing mock whips on a youth minister clad in a white rabbit costume, complete with long ears and a cotton tail, said some people who attended the event.

I guess they'll think twice about their Christmas production, "The Passion Of The Santa." I hear that Santa is scourged by the elves in that one...

By the way, I think they did an excellent job of conveying their "hey we're kooks" message. It seemed to get through loud and clear.

This story is totally blown out of context-you would have to know Glassport and the rednecks who live there also-rumor is Salzmann lost school board election to two members of the church congregation!

Just for the record, I know... (Below threshold)
Christianna:

Just for the record, I know the youth minister personally. The media blew this whole thing waaaay out of proportion and completely twisted the facts. I'm talking about the facts that they actually got right. Some of it was completely untrue in the first place. All my life i have heard not to completely believe what you hear on the news but i didn't start taking it seriously until it was true about someone close to me.

Oh, Christianna & Susan, ev... (Below threshold)

Oh, Christianna & Susan, even the mildest possible version of this story is bizarre. Have the courage of your convictions. If you don't like the Easter Bunny, say so, and for the real reason you don't like it. It's a pagan symbol, far, far, older than christianity. You hate it because you can't kill it. Get over it.
