Dumping Easter Bunny is political correctness gone amuck

EDGEWATER -- A Madison, Ala. school principal banned the word "Easter" from her school this year. Say what? She says it was in the interest of religious diversity.

I say she has slipped over the edge of sanity. The kids may have an academic egg hunt, but the eggs may not be called Easter eggs. They can refer to a bunny, but not the Easter Bunny.

She explained, “The kids love the bunny so they just try to make sure no one calls it the Easter Bunny so we don’t infringe on the rights of others because people relate the Easter Bunny to religion."

Considering the colored eggs and bunny have nothing to do with religion, this is beyond ridiculous. Being politically correct has run amuck and we must put a stop to it.

Who does it harm to have an Easter Bunny or Easter eggs? Won’t the little ones be confused when told not to call that furry little guy an Easter Bunny when they have been saying it since they could talk? It’s way past time to stop this madness that has taken over our country. There is nothing politically or any other way correct about so much going on today.

How long are we going to stand by and not fight back against this growing tide of craziness?

My house, school, town and local businesses are calling a spade a spade or an Easter Bunny an Easter Bunny as it were.

What other silliness will we accept if we accept this and do nothing? Come on people, speak up and stop the madness!
