|Rabbits do it too|
It was the best burrow in the forest. All the other rabbits said that to Doris and Mina. At least all their friends would. The two girl bunnies lived together. They didn't like boy rabbits, and just wanted to live together. Rabbits are like people in many ways. A lot of them don't like to see two boy or girl rabbits live together. They thought that every boy bunny should have a girl friend, and that every girl bunny should have a boy friend. Most of them did, but some didn't. They were different. Some bunnies and people don't like anyone being different. The others called them ‘Gay' but made them ‘Sad'. I'll bet you've never seen a sad bunny, have you? Doris and Mina bunny both had good jobs at Farmer Elmer's. They pulled weeds out of his carrot patch, and he even payed them in carrots and lettuce. They used the carrots and lettuce to trade for other things to use in their burrow. That's why their burrow was so pretty, with cute little things on the arms of their chairs, nice rugs on the floor to keep their little paws warm in the wintertime, and even electric lights and heaters. Not very many bunnies have electric lights and heaters. In her spare time Mina bunny worked at the hospital for free, helping sick animals. She helped all the sick animals, not just the rabbits. Doris bunny would take little animals out camping in the summertime. Have you ever gone out camping? Scary isn't it? Everything was nice back then, before the preacher moved to the forest. Preacher Benny Bunny was a good preacher. He taught the other animals all about God. He made enough money by preaching to have a nice burrow too, but not as nice as Doris and Mina's. The good preacher taught many good things, like your teacher does, but he also taught bad things too. Preacher Benny Bunny started teaching the other animals that Doris and Mina were bad. They were bad because they didn't have boy friends. “Every girl bunny should have a boyfriend,” Benny would preach, “because God says so. If bunnies didn't do that there would soon be no more bunnies. God says this and God says that.” Before long there was hate in the forest. Not hate like you say when you get mad at your Mama, but real hate. The kind where people kill other people. The kind of hate where you know you are right and that other people are wrong. Just because they don't think like you do, look like you do, or do the same things the same way you do. Isn't that silly? Preacher Benny Bunny preached that kind of hate along with his good things. He thought he was the only one in the forest that knew what God wanted. Soon Doris and Mina had other rabbits outside their burrow, telling them they had to leave. Those other bunnies believed the Preacher. They told Doris and Mina that they were bad and were going to hell when they died. First Doris was told she couldn't work at the hospital anymore. The boss said he didn't need a bad bunny like her. Then Mina also lost her job with taking little animals out camping. Her boss told her that they didn't want a bad bunny like her to be around their children. Now that was stupid too, wasn't it? It made Doris and Mina sad to think they weren't wanted. It made the sick animals and little ones sad too. They liked Doris and Mina. The Preacher was still not happy. “We don't want bunnies like them around here.” He preached at his church. “God has no place on his Earth for bad bunnies.” Both Doris and Mina lost most of their friends, even the ones who didn't go to Benny's Church.
