Boys and girls at an Alabama elementary school will still get to hunt for eggs – but they can’t call them ‘Easter Eggs’ have the principal banished the word for the sake of religious diversity.

“We had in the past a parent to question us about some of the things we do here at school,” said Heritage Elementary School principal Lydia Davenport. “So we’re just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody’s differences.”

“So we’re just trying to make sure we respect and honor everybody’s differences.”

Except the people we don't like. They have to shut up or pay the price.

Why are the DUMBEST members of society the ones teaching children?! We should be using the right half of the bell-curve for such an important job! Maybe all the former pot-heads want to impart their 1960s era drug-induced 'epiphanies'?

When people ban meanings, they’ll get exactly what they deserve: lives that are trivial and gray.

"Why are the DUMBEST members of society the ones teaching children?!"

Because they're the easiest courses in college and have the lowest standards?

Muslim parents?

Undoubtedly. With the frequency that these types of anti-Christian incidents are happening, I have no doubt that there is a group or possibly a network of atheists and/or Muslims who constantly search for schools they can target.

The parents of a school child will complain to their local Elementary/Middle/High school about whatever pissed them off concerning Christian practices in that school and demand that they be curtailed in the name of "Diversity".

Heck, the pedophiles have their own underground network, why not these arseholes?

And the school administrators are more than willing to go along rather than risk litigation.

It only takes one adminstrator with some b@ll$ to stand up and say, "Your objection has been noted and recorded. Now, go get 51% of the parents of children here to agree with you and we will be glad to ascede to your wishes. Otherwise, get over it."

Does this school have a room for Muslim students’ daily prayer, or foot washing stations?

At any rate, this town needs vouchers STAT.

I spoke up and fought Ann but many even serious Christians are like many here

Terrified of being called racist or bigot or prejudiced or anti semite

Not me obviously

And i have enemies here who wolf pack up and seek compliant mods to bolt me whenever i do nothing more than express shameful truths

Truths some here wish unsaid

There is very often much truth behind the names and reputations of “special” people and groups

Those “special” people that are the first to wildly attack calling you “anti-”

Observe the percentages of the American population that are in Congress and that dominate Congress and the percentages that are government employees

The uber-wealthy from insider deals that say “I have been in the Senate over twenty years and you are just a dumb.....”

The tax-cheats that say “Millions of American children have been killed with assault weapons.....”

Not only do we not speak up and fight.....

we don’t even use their Alinsky tactics of mocking and ridiculing our opponents against their stupid leftist @sses.

Perhaps it’s time for that to change....eh?

I live in Madison. It is not your typical southern town, due to NASA and the redstone arsenal. Very diverse population of Indian, Asian, Muslim, German, etc. That being said this principal angered many and has been very progressive minded compared to the 6 other elementary schools in this district. Obama supporter and voter. The board had a backlash due to this, hopefully this will place her contract under question, they have been trying to get rid of her a few years, sadly an example of union keeping incompetence in the system. :(

They should have questioned your ability to utter a gramatically-correct sentence.

At least the FR grammar &/or spelling NAZIS have gone to play golf with Opansy and his buddy “Woody” for a while

I have no idea how some people will ignore content and will instantly jump on stuff that will be unlikely to change anything of significance in this looming loony liberal country

My point was that she is focusing on ridiculous things like changing the name of Easter eggs instead of teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic. Spelling and grammar are part of writing.

Haha! I KNEW someone would make that comeback. As soon as I hit 'post' I knew I should have written it differently. Good catch.

- So the Barack-Muslim in Alabama says the word “EASTER” is taboo and will offend non-Christians -

- Dollars to donuts that traitorous Teacher’s Union butt is not working today on - “GOOD FRIDAY” -

- How about some of “our people” digging up her home phone and calling her to chat today “GOOD FRIDAY” and all weekend - including “EASTER”
