Just in case you missed the news, yesterday was Easter and atheists were “up in arms” over it, according to the Exception Magazine.


Daughter Denied Chocolate Bunny Due to Mother's Atheism

Atheists are up in arms over Easter. A user of the social bookmarking site Reddit, which often features an atheist perspective on the news, has posted a blurb that is causing a commenting frenzy:

My wife won't let me give our daughter a chocolate bunny just because we don't believe in Jesus, but I think this is ridiculous because we totally believe in bunnies.

It’s pathetic, and I’m not referring to a little girl’s lack of candy. The fact that Exception Magazine thought an alleged incident from a Reddit blurb was newsworthy is pathetic. The only evidence supporting the idea that atheists “are up in arms over Easter” is a string of comments on Reddit, which only reveals that internet users are argumentative – but everyone knew that already.

You’re not wrong there. And I'm not arguing with you on that point. lol

Another example of the media getting their hands on one piece of information and making it news. Next thing you know people will be protesting in the streets with huge signs proclaiming "give the girl a bunny!." It would have been no big deal at all if they had just said they didn't give her the damn bunny because they were limiting refined sugars! But because it was religious, its apparently news. and a slow news day at that. Up in arms my ass. I cleaned my house for Easter.

Lol Jin-oh. :D

And I agree Jenn. It must have been a slow day indeed. I guess I'd rather read this than the millions of other terrible things that could have happened instead.

It really is ridiculous on so many levels. The alleged Reddit blurb sounds like some smart-ass remark I'd make if I were the father. I doubt the chocolate bunny ban has a damn thing to do with their lack of religion. Though I have to admit, I'm often the person depicted in the stick figure picture. No matter how many times I try, you just can't make Theists on YouTube think for themselves.

...I mean, seriously. Chocolate bunnies have nothing to do with Jesus. Whether or not the atheist dad had any idea that fertility bunnies and Jesus are unrelated, SURELY Christians know they're separate! Surely no Christian believes bunnies and Jesus are in the same category! Friggin' idiots.
