    As far as I am concerned it is Easter, the key festival of the Christian calendar. They can do their thing, I’ll do mine.

    Are you sacrificing virgins and bathing in goats blood again like last year BD?

    Lets face it:

    [list][*]bunnies[/*]
    [*]eggs[/*]
    [*]silly morris dancers[/*][/list]

    Its all about spring/shagging/rebirth of the world (read: spring) innit? The Jesus thing turned up later. Or are we eating chocolate eggs because the cross on which this chappy was allegedly crucified was brown?

    Origins of the name “Easter”:
    Easter was named after Eostre (a.k.a. Eastre). She was the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe. Similarly, the “Teutonic dawn goddess of fertility [was] known variously as Ostare, Ostara, Ostern, Eostra, Eostre, Eostur, Eastra, Eastur, Austron and Ausos.” 1 Her name was derived from the ancient word for spring: “eastre.” Similar Goddesses were known by other names in ancient cultures around the Mediterranean, and were celebrated in the springtime.

    it is many things but it’s origins are not Christian though they did steal it …. which is a sin I believe 😕

    I know the basics of Christianity but I am to celebrate religious holiday by riding!

    Dammit, the atheist brigade are pushing things too far trying to get Easter renamed “spring break”. Everyone knows that Easter is when Jesus was crucified in a case of mistaken identity on the Friday and comes back to life in the form of a chocolate zombie on the Sunday.

    Blasphemers.

    He was mocked then as He is today so it would seem?

    For you, just a holiday but for others perhaps something more precious – it wouldn’t do any harm to maybe show a little respect me thinks.

    Totally agree, kids all over the western world will be gorgeing on cheap chocolate, in the name of Jesus and there’s no way I’m gonna let these pinko pc liberals stop that happening.

    show a little respect me thinks.

    go, on. I’m bored. Explain “why” someone else’s irrational belief in fairy tales warrants any more of my respect over and above the “just-another-human-being” level of respect.

    Would that be like the extra respect I should also have for the Scouts? or Milwall football club? Satanic Ritualists? or the National Secular Society?

    Some brilliant videos of young American ladies enjoying “Spring Break” available all over the internet! Thank Christ for that, I say.

    Actually most religious beliefs do not warrent any respect. They fail to respect many aspects of life – like homosexuality, sex outside marriage, HIV, abortion, the pill, condoms, womens freedom, free thinking, scientific method etc etc. I could go on, but we all know the views that are leftovers from the middle ages being pushed by religion.

    Its time people woke up and educated others out of these irrational beliefs and stopped being PC and / or quiet when it comes to blatant abuses of human rights.

    We should not give time and space for any irrationaly held ideas any more than we give to people who believe there are fairys at the bottom of their garden. But then again, at least fairys wont tell you its a sin to use a condom or work on a sunday FFS.

    strange I thought it was people not religion that actually did all that crap, or do you believe that without religion we all live in peace and harmony?

    Lindt bunnies! Heavenly if you excuse the pun!

    Anyway – this song should always be rolled out at this time of year:

    “There is a green hill far away

    beyond a city wall

    where our dear lord was crucified

    he died to save us all….

    Oh! for he’s a jolly good fellow

    For he’s a jolly good fellow…………………”

    Funny how there’s never any piss-taking about Muhammad, Ramadan or Islam. You can say what you like because of the freedom that comes due to the Christian history of this country, however, if you keep undermining the respect for your past you may well lose it.
    Perhaps your jibing is because you have no respect or decency for yourselves.

    Sorry, what are we likely to lose ? Freedom of speech, religion or just the easter eggs ?

    Perhaps your jibing is because you have no respect or decency for yourselves.

    Perhaps it’s because we don’t take life too seriously.

    no respect or decency for yourselves.

    hahahah.

    And I would counter that anyone who requires “faith” in their life has far less respect for themselves than I do for me.

    My values are based around a love of chocolate eggs and freedom of speech. Please consider them.

    consideration for others values

    because religeon* is well documented showing consideration of other people’s values isn’t it.

    *damn near all of them

    This is where the secularists/atheists get attacked. With the line that religion for some extraordinary reason deserves special treatment. It once did when there was a greater proportion of ignorant people willing to belive in an ominpotent god in the face of a lack of understanding of the world around them. With human development has come scientific understanding and the decentralisation of knowledge, and with that comes emancipation of the people from organised religion. Religion no longer deserves any form or preferential staus. It may be tolerated, and indeed it’s adherents protected from persecution and discriminiation. But no religious adherent or their organisation should ever be deserving of more or less respect than the next man, any special treatment and certainly not protection from ridicule, satire and naughty jokes or cartoons.

    I agree. The change in licencing laws to allow pubs to open all day and all week has been fantastic. Im off to ‘church’ later in fact for a bit of existential flagellation and odd stories about fairies.
