    ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Easter Bunny has been sent packing at St. Paul City Hall.A toy rabbit, pastel-colored eggs and a sign with the words "Happy Easter" were removed from the lobby of the City Council offices, because of concerns they might offend non-Christians.

    A council secretary had put up the decorations. They were not bought with city money.

    St. Paul's human rights director, Tyrone Terrill, asked that the decorations be removed, saying they could be offensive to non-Christians.

    But City Council member Dave Thune says removing the decorations went too far, and he wonders why they can't celebrate spring with "bunnies and fake grass

    I wonder if they did the same thing with Santa?

    And I wonder when all this stuff that has nothing to do with Christianity started offending non-christians????

    I would think that if the Easter Bunny would be offensive to anyone it would be to Christians as a trivialization of the most sacred holiday.

    Not that I won't be nibbling on chocolate bunny ears and, nummers nummers, Dove truffle eggs...well, I'm not so easily offended when chocolate is offered.

    Are Catholics offended by chocolate Sacred Hearts (linkie)?
