O’Reilly listed five public schools he said are replacing the word “Easter” with the word “Spring.” The school are reportedly hosting “Spring Egg Hunts.”

So how is this stupid tradition part of Christian philosophy or the religion?

I went to American urban public schools. I never once had an easter egg hunt because I was in a “ghetto” school. This must be something that rich real estate district public schools, do I guess.

Now that you mention it, I don’t remember ever having an Easter Egg hunt at school either.

Bill should just focus on destroying the life of his ex-wife and getting her excommunicated from the church. This is what he excels at.

Oh no they called it a spring egg hunt. How terrible.

“When you said a ‘spring egg,’ I thought there literally was a spring on an egg!” Ingraham said.

This is one instance in which I miss Keith Olbermann spoofing Billo’s commentary by reading it in a Ted Baxter voice.

Laura Ingraham is keeping up step for step with B.O. on this one.

Yeah Laura you really “thought” that. Really given the Pagan roots of Easter, the brouhaha over this is so stupid.

When I was growing up there were Easter egg hunts , usually church sponsored or other organizations that got involved with kids . There was no religious connotation . It really makes no difference when you call it “Easter ” or “Spring ” both indicate symbols of fertility , either of the land or of people . Ishtir was a godess of fertility transliterated to “easter ” , rabbits and eggs are ancient symbols or fertility[btw-so is the x-mas tree ] so O’Reilly’s argument is borne of ignorance .
To catholics who truly know their faith , it is called Ressurrection Day , that is the feast day that the Ressurrection of Christ is celebrated .
Spring / Easter = same same-pagan feast days . Why O’Reilly sees any good cause to argue these things with an Atheist is kind of a non-sequitur .

Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham joined O’Reilly on the segment. “I think you’re onto something,” she said.

I think it’s called drugs, dear. Lots of drugs, for a very long time.

That’s gold, Jerry, GOLD!

Maybe this is in the video (can’t watch at work), but one of my tweeterers tweeted a screenshot from O’Really’s? show that said this:

Traditionalism Under Attack: That’s what you have in Scandinavia and that is why the Easter Bunny is on the run in many parts of America.

You can’t make this stuff up.

My wingnut Mother in law told me she heard through her church that Bill O Reilly is writing a new book called “Killing Jesus” I guess he wants to somehow equate liberals with the death of Jesus now. Even if it’s just in spirit.

The movie is coming up this summer.

For anyone thiking Easter is on the run , I suggest going to your local supermarket , card &gift store , Department Store , confectionary shop .
Easter bunnies in all flavors , chocolate eggs . It’s secular man , I can’t see how anyone can have a problem with it . What about Valentines Day ? That was a commemoration to a Saint ? How many people think of that when buying a gift for a spouse or Beau ?
But O’Reilly specializes in bullshit , and if he can sucker a like minded atheist on his show ….well ,there is an old saying …”never argue with an idiot , people watching will not know which of you is the idiot ” .
As far as any of you who have never had an easter egg hunt , even in urban schools , well you must have lived sheltered lives , or you’re that young , that the schmucks of the world already done away with them before your time .

That is stupid, you can’t “kill” Jesus because he is already dead, now if they called it “killing zombie Jesus who wants to eat your brain” I could probably get into it a bit more… :p

O’Reilly fancies himself a good catholic .[ Guys from Chaminade always considered themselves superior ] The Title sounds like something that would eminate fom a hypocritical brain such as O’Reilly’s .No doubt it will be the next door prize for the show write-ins that he likes .
