Heritage Elementary School In Alabama Bans 'Easter'- Updated- War On Easter Continues

By Susan Duclos

Taking political correctness into the realm of ridiculous, Heritage Elementary School In Alabama has banned the word "Easter" from their Easter activities, in order to "respect and honor everybody’s differences," says Principal Lydia Davenport.

The Easter Egg Hunt is on, but they cannot call them Easter Eggs and the hunt itself is to be called an "academic egg hunt."

The Easter Bunny can be acknowledged, but nope, cannot call it an Easter Bunny.

Parents are not happy as one email shows:

“I don’t get upset about too many things, but this upsets me. What is this world coming to? I am a Christian and proud to announce it. But even non-believers enjoy a good egg hunt. Kids need to enjoy being kids.”
