Looking through the logs, 2012 is the only year since the new board software was installed that you haven't posted this identical bad joke.

I believe I beat him a few years ago, though. It was part in fun, also to make the serious point that even Paul acknowledged, "If Christ be not risen, our faith is in vain, and we are the more to be pitied." More than Christmas, Easter is the fulcrum of Christianity, attracting the wisecracking of scoffers, the ire of skeptics, and persecution from Islamists. Already, there have been church bombings, starting in Indonesia.
How did a celebration of the raising a dead Christian god (the dead Christian god) back to life, ever get blended together with a pegan holiday that celebrates fertility? Considering what a prude the Mormon Jesus is, these two events don't look very compatible in the sharing of a holiday. Maybe Halloween should share a holiday with Christian prayer, or some other un-related event from some other religion. Does anyone here know the back-story about how Rabbits and eggs became linked to this Christian holiday?
