My Easter Rant

I know it's a little late but better late than never. I've posted before about my feelings on Christmas and the commercialization of the same, but now I'm going to rant about Easter. What kind of sick mind did it take to come up with a colored egg laying rabbit to try to get people's minds off of the risen Christ at Easter? Even though we did the Easter basket thing with our kids we never played up the Easter Bunny. They always knew the candy came from us, not some stupid rabbit. They died the eggs themselves so they knew a rabbit didn't lay them. We always made sure they knew what Easter was really about. When they got new clothes for Easter they knew it was representative of Christ's sacrifice on the Cross that made us all new and clean and free from sin.

I find it strange that people tend to believe what they read in the newspaper and question what they read in the Bible. Anyone else want to rant some on this subject, feel free to comment.
