“Easter” not allowed at elementary school

By | March 26, 2013

Each December, the push against all things Christmas becomes increasingly stronger. Unfortunately, it is not the only religiously and culturally celebrated holiday under attack by today’s leftists.
Originally, the principal of Heritage Elementary School in Alabama banned Easter eggs after “a parent” confronted her “to question us about some of the things we do here at school.”
After a backlash from parents, Lydia Davenport rescinded her initial decision but still refuses to allow anyone to recognize the eggs as having any relationship to the Easter holiday.
School board member Phil Schmidt recognized the fallacy of banning eggs, saying the principal was “probably more cautious than she needed to be.”
He noted schools must be cautious in today’s educational system, though he said administrators sometimes “over think it.”
Whether teachers use the word Easter or not, Schmidt said kids are going to recognize the visual cues.
“People have known there are multicolored eggs that have been a symbol of Easter for a long, long, long, long time,” he said, noting even the White House hosts an annual Easter Egg Roll on the lawn.
Still, Davenport seeks to satiate the desires of constantly offended secularists, ostensibly “so that we don’t infringe on the rights of others” who might “relate the Easter bunny to religion.”
Though the floppy-eared animals will be in attendance during the holiday week, she admonished, “A bunny is a bunny and a rabbit is a rabbit.”
Refusing to identify holiday decorations as what they are is a losing proposition on all fronts. It simply infuriates those with traditional values while still reminding everyone with a pulse that the holiday is approaching.
Merely acknowledging the existence of a holiday is in no way an endorsement for a particular religion and, with such events deeply ingrained into our cultural identity, should not be forsaken at the first sign of disapproval from an upset parent.
Given that such a low bar has already been set in many of the nation’s administrators, it seems just a matter of time before all vestiges of Judeo-Christian faith will be whitewashed from our schools.
