Donohue has the evidence and any legal expert who has watched more than a couple of episodes of Law and Order will agree that the evidence is overwhelming.
Dononue writes, “Adults in Munson Township, Ohio were ordered to call their Easter Egg Hunt the Egg Hunt.” A quick trip to the Munson Township website shows an 'Easter Egg Hunt' There must be more to it than is. Donohue is a obviously much closer to God than most so he obviously has the power to see through this bit of misdirection by Muncson Township, Ohio and its 5,521 residents.
Turns out Munson Township decided to have an Easter Egg Hunt for the first time and one of the towns trustees, a former Sunday school teacher suggested dropping the word 'Easter from the name of the event. This was leaked to the press and all hell broke loose. The teacher was subjectb to 'threats' and 'profanity laced phone calls. Some might call it a 'war on Sunday schoolteachers' but it's obviously a far more sinister plot. Easter was soon restored to its rightful place.
Then the real shocker. 3rd graders at a Seattle school were told they had to call 'Easter Eggs' Spring Spheres. Is nothing scared? Christians were outraged, O'Reilly was ready to take on the secular army out to destroy Easter and Christianity as we know it. Then it turned out the story began with a 16 year old names Jessica calling into a right wing radio show that 'someone' ha told her this had happened. Hordes of well dressed young Christian men investigated but found nothing,
Donohue was undeterred. According to Think Progess he listed further evidence.
– A filmmaker who claims to have found the nails used to crucify JesusNeither Donohue or Hannity the Fox host bothered to explain how all of this constitutes a 'War on Easter' other than to keep referring to it.
– Time Magazine featuring an evangelical Christian on the cover of a magazine
– An column written by an atheist British comedian (Ricky Gervais)
– A song about Judas by pop provocateur Lady Gaga
Fox wasn't done or deterred. They set their sights on a higher target, the President himself. Other than hosting an Easter prayer breakfast, going to church on Sunday morning and holding the traditional Easter Egg Roll (notice the use of the word Easter) on Monday, Fox brought noted flamethrowing pastor Richard Jeffress to claim that this was all for show and that is was really a Jihadi Grenade Roll on the White House lawn.
JEFFRESS: Steve, let’s look at what’s really going on here. On the one hand, we have a president who never met a Muslim holiday he didn’t like, or at least wasn’t willing to issue a proclamation for, and on the other hand, here he is refusing to acknowledge publicly the most important event in Christian faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and yet the White House is wondering why do 20 percent of Americans believe the president is a Muslim? Well as my kids would say, ‘Duh.’ I mean, it’s actions like these that really make people wonder what it is the president really believes.
Truth is neither Bush presidents nor Saint Ronnie ever issued a proclamation recognizing Easter. Neither has he issued a proclamation for any Muslim holiday. Obama did issue statements at the beginning of Ramadan and has hosted dinners honoring Ramadan but then he was only continuing a tradition started by.......George W. Bush who hosted 8 of them.
For those less familiar with American Presidential protocol, statements are regular unofficial announcemnts while Proclamations carry far more heft. I guess this puts George W. Bush on the same plane as Obama if we're to apply Fox's and Jeffress' logic but that would be crediting them with the ability to think logically which is a far bigger stretch than believing that there is a 'War on Easter'.
