The PC Police are out in force, but rather than trying to take down Christmas they now want to censor Easter. Glenn had the story on radio this morning.
A small town in Ohio is taking “Easter” out of the traditional Easter egg hunt, and seeking to rename it the “spring egg hunt”. While the town trustees have said they have no issue with letting the event take place under the name “Easter egg hunt”, they don’t want tax dollars to sponsor the even unless the religious element is removed.
“ Why are the taxpayers footing the bill for an Easter egg hunt in the first place? I don't care what you call it. Why are the taxpayers footing the bill for it?” Glenn said.
“And what's the problem if they are footing the bill with calling it an Easter egg hunt?” Pat asked. “Somebody might be offended? Oh, no! There's no clause in the Constitution about being offended.”
Glenn was baffled by the whole situation, and begged someone from Munson, OH, source of the conflict, to call into the show. Around 9:30am, Ralph from Munson made his wish come true.
“ Now, you're in the home of the spring egg hunt now, not the Easter egg hunt,” Glenn said. “How are you feeling about that?”
“Well, a little bit, a little bit uneasy, number of reasons. One is this is the home of, you know, Notre Dame cathedral, Latin High School and elementary school which is probably, you know, one of the strong points of this community here, largest campus in Ohio of its sort and, you know, also take it a little personal having a daughter at that -- at that school,” Ralph said.
“It's gotten a little ridiculous. Last year we actually set up as a little community here and had our own Easter egg hunt,” Ralph said.
This year, members of the community are expanding the hunt to more members of the community, and the Easter egg hunt will be funded entirely by local business.
“We've been advertising it for about the last two or three weeks. We're actually hosting our own Easter egg hunt for the kids 11 and under and, you know, everything there is, you know, bought and paid by our store,” Ralph said.
