Beating the Bunny

Once again, I found myself looking for the smiley face on this one:

GLASSPORT, Pa. — First, the Passion of the Christ. Now, the torment of the Easter Bunny?

It may not have been as gruesome as Mel Gibson’s movie, but many parents and children got upset when a church trying to teach about Jesus’ crucifixion performed an Easter show with actors whipping the Easter bunny and breaking eggs.

That’s right, folks. According to the AP story, Glassport Assembly of God put on a show for the kiddies to “convey that Easter is not just about the Easter bunny, it is about Jesus Christ.” A woman who attended the disturbing performance said of her 4-year-old son “He was crying and asking me why the bunny was being whipped.”
