I would love to see the looks on their kids faces when they are told they can't go on an Easter egg hunt.

What does a giant bunny and eggs have to do with the religious Easter?

Modern holidays today are hilariously not religious. People lining up for holiday shopping the day after thanksgiving has zero to do with Jesus's birthday. Easter baskets, chocolate gesus and baskets have nothing to do with the resurrection of Christ. An imaginary bunny hopping around your yard hiding colored eggs or a fat bearded man soaring around with reindeer dropping down your chimney...ya, not religious. I refuse to take the "war on Christian" holidays seriously because these holidays have absolutely not a single thing to do with Christ.

I would love to know what that has to do with this.

I support groups sharing their beliefs. And yes, this is the Atheists way of sharing their beliefs. It does not sway my beliefs though. It is not a very positive message though. It seems kind of like a stick it to the other guy kind of thing. But whatever.

Atheist Group Resurrects War on Easter

I didn't see any war on Easter.

I saw support for the constitution, and the separation of church and state.

Secularism is very different from Atheism.

Nobody is saying "don't go on Easter egg hunts".

What they're saying is "Don't use my tax dollars to fund or endorse religious displays."
