Should something as simple and harmless as an Easter egg hunt for children be immune from "political correctness" activists?

As long as people understand that jesus and the easter bunny have the same basis in reality, then I do not have any problem with it.

I'm sure your lack of capitalization for the name Jesus was deliberate; unfortunately it just makes you seem petty and small and dumb rather than clever.

He probably gets off on telling young children there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus. The Jesus part of that sounded like historical revisionism. Discrediting the old faith is what you have to do to attract potential followers to the new faith.

Hey, I did not capitalize the easter bunny either. As I have said before, 'be offended just as much as you want to be', or in your case just as much as you can imagine.

Didn't say I was offended, I'm not offended. Just saying that when you capitalize your name but don't capitalize the name Jesus, it makes a statement--just probably not the one you intended.

Do you use small letters for church names too, or is that something special you reserve for specific names you choose to disregard?

OK, From now on I will make it a point to capitalize the Zombie Jew. Do you feel better now?

To tell you the truth I really did not think about it. I am an atheist, but I know you Bible Thumper's love to take offense at anything. You never miss a chance to play the victim.

This is the problem with the self-righteous bigots who call themselves christians. They feel they have the right to harass anyone at anytime about anything. As an atheist how I chose to spell the Zombie Jews name is my business not yours. The fact that you feel the need to harass me about it is a perfect example of the 'privilege' you some how feel entitled to because you are a christian.

Again, not offended.

But Jesus is a name, and we capitalize names. In fact, I would have to disable the auto cap button on my iPad for it not to be capitalized.

Just sayin you definitely make a statement--just not sure it's the one you think you're making.

Don't believe that's harassment to tell you that, and I did want to know how far you took it--if Jesus was special to you that way, or if you expanded it.

I will note that what you wrote is much more harassing in tone than what I wrote, but I think we established on the Gleeful Healthcare question that that is just your way.

"it just makes you seem petty and small and dumb rather than clever"

The fact that you are still talking about it proves my point. A good christian would have ignored it, turned the other cheek so to speak, but not you, you just had to insult me for not capitalizing the name of your phony god. Of course now that I know you and just how far you are willing to go with this, an apology is not anything I expect from the likes of you.

TripleD sez: "As long as people understand that jesus and the easter bunny have the same basis in reality, then I do not have any problem with it."

TripleD, pay attention you miserable little creepy atheist because NOW you have a problem. ME. As if you can do ANYTHING because it is a problem for you if I don't believe in your RHETORIC. What are you going to do? Speak your crap and take pot shots whenever you feel like it?

The Easter bunny and Jesus have absolutely nothing in basis or common to begin with. One is commercial and the other is a faith based religious belief and RIGHT. You see, you miserable little atheist, it's MY CHOICE, MY RIGHT, MY FAITH and not yours to choose or DENY ME. PERIOD.

YOU don't want to believe, then DON'T. You see, YOU need to BUTT out of my life and what I choose to believe. That means, your constant pot shots about my GOD needs to end. Because frankly you weasel. IT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS how I choose to celebrate EASTER and JESU

NOTHING stopped you from bringing it up and talking about it, now did it you weasel?

TripleD, I am a firm believer that God is testing our faith through atheists. And bud, you have been chosen.

Maybe YOU should start thinking about that.

Oh and one more thing. I can't prove God exists just like YOU can't prove he doesn't. Guess what side I am jumping on? Good or Evil. Your choice.

TripleD again in his miserable little athesist hateful way sez: "The fact that you feel the need to harass me about it is a perfect example of the 'privilege' you some how feel entitled to because you are a christian."

Again, WEASEL, who wrote the first COMMENT?

YOU! The same weasel that believes that HE IS ONLY ENTITLED to take his pot shots.

Wow...History proves that Jesus was and we Christians know that Jesus lives. The Bible is clear that those who refuse to believe will hate those who do. So why would anyone who knows what the Bible says, be surprised by these comments?

The Easter Bunny is a cartoon/fantasty/story who never was alive. It's fun for the children.

Bottom line, either we are right or the atheists are. If we're right, we'll all find out, and those who reject salvation know where they will be going. I hear it's pretty hot. If the atheists are right, they won't even be able to say they told us so, because it'll just be lights out, pop, click, good bye. As written in the bible, the dead know nothing.

There it is again. The violent outbursts from the self-righteous bigots who call themselves christians. There is no room for the rights of an atheist here. There is no tolerance for freedom of expression for the atheist. The atheist has no rights, no freedom of speech as far as the christians are concerned. All you are doing is proving that your belief system falls apart when you run into someone like me. Why wait for god to punish the atheist when you can reap your righteous vengeance right here and now? You might as well form a circle and start throwing rocks just like the true people of the bible did back in the old days. The only difference between you and the radical islamists is the language the book is written in.
