For some, Easter is a hop and a skip (standard:humor, 899 words)

Many people hop over the truth, skip around reality and never find the real purpose of God's intention for them.
 



As may be expected, Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Although I
prefer to call it Resurrection Sunday, I am not easily offended by 
words. Remember the old saying, "Sticks and stones may break your 
bones, but words will never hurt you." 

It is amazing to me how some people get all bent out of shape when it
comes to words. I think it is impossible to keep up with the political 
correctness that some people insist. I have never known a single day or 
an hour in which I have wanted to be politically correct about 
anything. 

I try to be as sensitive to people's feelings as possible. I do not want
to needlessly offend anybody, but it is nearly impossible not to in the 
day in which we live. It has come to the place that you do not know 
quite how to greet anybody anymore. 

"Merry Christmas,” seems to enflame some people, which is why I always
give the greeting to everyone I meet, even when it is not Christmas. 

The least little thing offends so many people. Many people have thin
skin, but very thick heads. 

Just the other day the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage brought a
situation to my attention. At first, I thought she was pulling my leg, 
so to speak. It became quite evident that she was not. 

According to the article, somebody was objecting to the Easter Bunny.
For some reason the person writing this article was objecting to 
Religious holidays. In his opinion, everything related to Religion 
needs to be stripped from our society. 

He gave several examples, but one stood out among all the rest. That one
was the humble little Easter Bunny. I have been a Christian for a long 
time and read my Bible through dozens of times and I have yet to run 
across any reference to the Easter Bunny. However, this person became 
very irritated at the Easter Bunny symbol. I am not sure what he 
thought that symbol was. 

His attack on the Easter Bunny was because, in his opinion, it was a
religious symbol of some sort. He did not go into any detail about what 
that symbol was; simply that it needed immediate extraction from 
contemporary society. In reading the article, I picked up the idea that 
this person was particularly agitated about everything religious. And 
he took his vengeance out on the Easter Bunny. 

I really do not mind people attacking Christianity. After all, they did
it to Jesus while he was alive. However, I wish if they are going to 
attack Christianity, they would at least read the Bible and know what 
to attack. If this person is as stupid in other areas of the article, 
as in this particular aspect, how can we believe anything he says? Dumb 
is as dumb writes. 

I have been thinking about something for a long time and it might soon
be time to put it into action. My plan is to spread the rumor that 
Punxsutawney Phil, the famous groundhog, is actually a religious 
symbol. I do not have to mention what it is a symbol of; simply that it 
is a religious symbol. That will be enough to have people, like the one 
who wrote this particular article, get in an uproar and demand that 
this symbol be eradicated from contemporary society. 

I think good old Punxsutawney Phil could handle himself on this
particular issue. Even if people should succeed in getting rid of the 
old boy, he probably could use the sleep. 

If this plan succeeds, and the likelihood is pretty high, I might go on
to my next plan. I will begin spreading the rumor that Thursday has a 
significant religious symbolism to it. Again, I need not define what 
that symbolism is, only that there is the possibility. 

Soon high-minded plans will be in place to attack Thursday and do away
with it. There will be a bill in Congress to call Thursday, “The Day 
after Wednesday.” Of course, on the Senate side there will be those who 
will want to call it, "The Day before Friday." Soon it will be a hot 
topic headlining every media news program in America. The pros and cons 
will be heatedly debated. Some may even want to call it, "Wednesday 
Part 2.” 

No matter what they decide on, it will be certain that nobody who is
politically correct could say the word “Thursday,” ever again. 

Personally, I would not mind that, because like Punxsutawney Phil, I
could use the rest. 

The only holiday that has not yet come under attack is the one
celebrated on April 1. My thinking behind this is, every fool should 
have his or her day. Now, I never object to a fool celebrating on April 
1. It seems to me that the celebrants of this holiday are vastly 
increasing. I make it a point every year to join in the celebration. 

Easter is my special holiday. The apostle Paul defined it, "For I
delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that 
Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was 
buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the 
scriptures:” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). 

Many people hop over the truth, skip around reality and never find the
real purpose of God's intention for them.
